Urban Trees 'Live Fast, Die Young' Compared to Those in Rural Forests

Urban trees grow more quickly but die faster than rural trees, resulting in a net loss of street-tree carbon storage over time, according to a new study. The findings suggest that planting ... read more

Early Spring: Predicting Budburst With Genetics

Tree and shrub genetics can be used to produce more accurate predictions of when leaves will burst bud in the spring, according to a new ... read more

Genetic Adaptation to Climate Change

New research has shown that the threat of range losses for some species as a result of climate change could be overestimated because of the ability of certain animals to adapt to rising temperatures ... read more

Hunting Jeopardizes Forest Carbon Storage, Yet Is Overlooked in Climate Mitigation Efforts

The loss of animals, often due to unregulated or illegal hunting, has consequences for the carbon storage capacity of forests, yet this link is rarely mentioned in high-level climate policy ... read more

Cattle Ranching Could Help Conserve Rare African Antelope, Lions

Ranch managers' placement of cattle corrals away from Jackson's hartebeest likely would allow the antelope species to increase, with lions focused on the zebras that congregate at the ... read more

Lifelong chemical records stored in the canine teeth of an elusive group of seals show that the seals remain in freshwater their entire lives and are likely a distinct population from their relatives ... read more

The excrements of hippos play an important role in the ecosystem of African lakes and rivers. Because there are fewer and fewer hippos, this ecosystem is in danger. In the long term, this could lead ... read more

The Hunger Gaps: How Flowering Times Affect Farmland Bees

For the very first time, researchers have measured farmland nectar supplies throughout the whole year and revealed hungry gaps when food supply is not meeting pollinator demand. This novel finding ... read more

Palm Oil's Potential to Alleviate Poverty Depends on Where It's Grown

Palm oil's potential to alleviate poverty depends on where it's grown. Expansion of oil palm production in remote forest areas requires careful planning and evaluation if the communities ... read more

A new study has identified three factors critical in the rise of mammal communities since they first emerged during the Age of Dinosaurs: the rise of flowering plants; the evolution of tribosphenic ... read more

Marine Scientists Investigate the Relationship Between Bumphead Parrotfish and Their Coral Reef Habitat on a Molecular Level

The next time you find yourself luxuriating in some exotic, Instagrammable vacation spot, thank a parrotfish. That white sand slithering between your toes? It consists mostly of their ... read more

Lionfish Genes Studied for Clues to Invasive Prowess

What makes the red lionfish (Pterois volitans) such a successful and powerful invader in Atlantic Ocean waters compared to its rather lamb-like existence in its native Pacific Ocean? A new study ... read more

Deep-Ocean Creatures Living a 'Feast-or-Famine' Existence Because of Energy Fluxes

Scientists for the first time have tracked how much energy from plants and animals at the surface of the open ocean survives as particles drop to the seafloor more than two miles below, where they ... read more

Natural Landscapes? Scientists Call for a Paradigm Shift in Restoration Projects

Regardless of whether we are dealing with a floodplain landscape or an entire national park, the success of a restoration project depends on more than just the reintroduction of individual plant or ... read more

In the Galapagos Islands, Darwin's finches drawn to junk food are experiencing changes in their gut microbiota and their body mass as compared to finches that don't encounter human food, ... read more

An international team has conducted the first-ever global survey of the ecological diversity of viruses in the oceans during expeditions aboard a single sailboat. They identified nearly 200,000 ... read more

Scientists have revealed the massive ecological and economic impacts that the invasive alien tree Prosopis juliflora has had across the Afar Region of north eastern ... read more

Global warming has caused twice as many ocean-dwelling species as land-dwelling species to disappear from their habitats, a unique study found. The greater vulnerability of sea creatures may ... read more

Advanced molecular techniques have revealed the diversity of a little-understood group of ocean microbes called protists, according to a new publication. The project analyzed samples collected by the ... read more

Antarctica: The Final Frontier for Marine Biological Invasions?
