Does loss of natural landscape boost insecticide use? — Last modified February 22, 2016 08:28
If an alien were to land in the Midwestern United States, chances are they'd land in a field of corn. The region used to be grassland, but now 40% of the world's corn is grown here, with fields stretching to the horizon in every direction. But crop pests like the "corn belt" too, and farmers rely heavily on insecticides. Now a study indicates that crop pests pour in when landscape diversity is lost.
Trees employ similar strategies to outcompete their neighbors — Last modified February 16, 2016 13:30
How more than 1,000 tree species may occur in a small area of forest in Amazonia or Borneo is an unsolved mystery. Their ability to coexist may depend on how trees get along with their neighbors. A new study based, in part, on data from the Smithsonian’s Forest Global Earth Observatory (ForestGEO) network shows that trees worldwide compete in some of the same ways, making simpler models of forest response to climate change possible.

New study using UK data is first to show that raising farm yields and allowing ‘spared’ land to be reclaimed for woodlands and wetlands could offset greenhouse gas produced by farming industry to meet national target of 80% emissions reduction by 2050.
