Soil ecosystems are critical for agriculture, biodiversity and human well-being. Poor soil health means a poor planetary outlook.
A study of a Lake Erie wetland suggests that scientists have vastly underestimated the number of places methane-producing microbes can survive—and, as a result, today's global climate models may be misjudging the amount ...
When you are tired or hungry, you're not as productive. You may need to rest or eat. If you push yourself too far, you may get ill.
Arid and semiarid ecosystems are expected to experience significant changes in temperature and precipitation patterns, which may affect soil organisms in ways that cause surfaces to become lighter in color and thus reflect ...
Many complexities of the carbon sequestration process remain poorly understood, despite years of research and the significant impact of this process on global climate.
Since its launch in 2012, the EucFACE experiment, based at WSU's Hawkesbury campus, has exposed a patch of native forest in north-west Sydney to high levels of carbon-dioxide—replicating our predicted future atmosphere.
Deer infected with chronic wasting disease are doomed to a slow and certain death, eventually wasting away as they lose the ability to eat and drink. There is no cure and no vaccine, and the number of infected deer continues ...
Without eyes, ears, or a central nervous system, plants can perceive the direction of environmental cues and respond to ensure their survival.
Scientists from RUDN University have classified the distribution of soil microorganisms at different latitudes from tropical to temperate forests. The results of the study were published in Functional Ecology.
By exploiting the power of high-performance computing, a new statistical tool has been developed by KAUST researchers that could reduce the cost and improve the accuracy of analyzing large environmental and climate datasets.
