Theory of 'smart' plants may explain the evolution of global ecosystems — Last modified January 11, 2016 08:33
It's easy to think of plants as passive features of their environments, doing as the land prescribes, serving as a backdrop to the bustling animal kingdom.
Land-cover fragmentation can boost ecosystem services — Last modified January 11, 2016 08:27
Controlling the fragmentation of land cover can boost the provision of ecosystem services such as pollination, pest regulation and recreation, even if the natural land cover itself is reduced, according to researchers in Canada.
Preventing famine with mobile phones — Last modified December 21, 2015 14:33
With a mobile data collection app and satellite data, scientists will be able to predict whether a certain region is vulnerable to food shortages and malnutrition. The method has now been tested in the Central African Republic.
Drought stops tree circulation — Last modified December 21, 2015 14:32
Why trees die in a drought is a long-standing puzzle. Do they stop photosynthesizing, run out of food and starve? Or do they cease being able to transport water? Now researchers from the UK, Brazil, Sweden, Spain and Australia have found that water shortage can introduce air bubbles into the xylem tissue that transports water and minerals from trees’ roots to their leaves, preventing it from working properly. That can kill, with larger trees proving more susceptible.

Cause of global warming hiatus found deep in the Atlantic Ocean — Last modified December 02, 2015 09:20
Following rapid warming in the late 20th century, this century has so far seen surprisingly little increase in the average temperature at the Earth's surface. At first this was a blip, then a trend, then a puzzle for the climate science community.
Industry responsible for many fire emissions from Sumatra and Kalimantan — Last modified December 02, 2015 09:12
Many fire emissions from the Indonesian islands of Sumatra and Kalimantan are associated with industrial concessions for timber and oil palm. That's according to scientists from Columbia University and Harvard University in the US.
Study suggests organic farming needs direction to be sustainable — Last modified November 26, 2015 09:36
Large-scale organic farming operations, based on a review of almost a decade of data from 49 states, are not reducing greenhouse gas emissions, says a University of Oregon researcher.
A regional look at HANPP: human consumption is increasing, NPP is not — Last modified November 25, 2015 09:53
Steven Running reckons the regional trend in analysis of human appropriation of net primary production (HANPP) can quantify increasing vulnerability of the local populations to any shortfall in NPP as demand approaches supply, providing an early warning system.
