Habitat research methods give a new peek at tiger life

Habitat research methods give a new peek at tiger life

From a tiger’s point of view, yesterday’s thoughtful conservation plans might be today’s reason to branch out. An international team of researchers has found a useful way to better understand the tiger’s take on policy. Twelve years ago, a team led by Jianguo «Jack» Liu at Michigan State University (MSU) showed that China needed to […]

Climate change creates complicated consequences for North America’s forests

Climate change affects forests across North America — in some cases permitting insect outbreaks, plant diseases, wildfires and other problems — but Dartmouth researchers say warmer temperatures are also making many forests grow faster and some less susceptible to pests, which could boost forest health and acreage, timber harvests, carbon storage, water recycling and other […]

Подавляющее большинство жителей городов ЕС дышат загрязненным воздухом: доклад

Согласно последнему официальному отчету Европейского агентств по охране окружающей среды (ЕАА), выбросы опасных загрязнителей – твердых макро-частиц – в европейских городах уменьшились, но 88 процентов городских обитателей по-прежнему дышат воздухом, качество которого не дотягивает до стандартов, установленных Всемирной организацией здравоохранения (ВОЗ). Твердые частицы размером менее 10 мкм (ТЧ10), микроскопические пылинки и сажа, получаемая в результате […]

Animal populations can have a far more significant impact on carbon storage and exchange in regional ecosystems than is typically recognized by global carbon models, according to a new paper authored by researchers at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies (F&ES). In fact, in some regions the magnitude of carbon uptake or release […]
