Termites can help prevent desertification — Last modified May 06, 2016 12:15
Termites can keep desertification at bay by adding nutrients and helping water infiltrate soil. But the vegetation patterns that result can confuse scientists by resembling those formed just before an ecosystem collapses.

Study reveals your nitrogen footprint – and who it is impacting — Last modified February 22, 2016 08:27
You’ve heard of managing your carbon footprint. But how about your nitrogen footprint? Emissions of reactive nitrogen into the environment have increased more than 10-fold over the past 150 years, contribute to deaths from air pollution and water pollution, and have countless other impacts including acid rain and degradation of ecosystems such as the Great Barrier Reef.

One crop, two ways, multiple benefits — Last modified February 17, 2016 08:48
Nitrogen fixation is one of the best examples of cooperation in nature. Soil microbes – naturally occurring bacteria in the soil – work with plants to pull nitrogen from the air. They turn the nitrogen into a form the plant is able to use. In return, the plant lets the microbes eat some of the sugars it makes.
Tree rings reveal growing synchrony — Last modified February 12, 2016 09:27
Conifers in Spain and Siberia are growing more in synch as climate changes. That's according to researchers from Spain and Russia, who analysed tree ring-widths for the last 120 years.
Warm nights could flood the atmosphere with carbon under climate change — Last modified January 15, 2016 15:21
The warming effects of climate change usually conjure up ideas of parched and barren landscapes broiling under a blazing sun, its heat amplified by greenhouse gases. But a study led by Princeton University researchers suggests that hotter nights may actually wield much greater influence over the planet’s atmosphere as global temperatures rise — and could eventually lead to more carbon flooding the atmosphere.
Forest monitoring technology for REDD+ is good to go — Last modified January 11, 2016 08:29
Technology is now available to meet the measurement and monitoring objectives of the UN’s REDD+ (reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation) mechanism. That’s according to Scott Goetz and colleagues at the Woods Hole Research Center, University of Maryland and Center for Global Development, all in the US, in the first paper in Environmental Research Reviews, a new section in Environmental Research Letters (ERL). Representatives from the team are present at the COP21 meeting in Paris.
