New research shows humans have more impact on tropical nitrogen levels — Last modified May 30, 2014 07:56
A new paper co-written by four University of Montana researchers finds that humans have more than doubled tropical nitrogen inputs.
How did Australian drylands cause record land carbon sink in 2011? — Last modified May 30, 2014 07:53
Each year, scientists assess how much carbon the ocean, land and atmosphere absorbed. In 2011 land took up the largest amount of carbon since measurements began in 1958 – 4.1 Petagrammes (Pg) compared with the decadal average of 2.6 Pg. Now an international team has discovered that the bulk of this uptake was due to plant growth in dry regions of the southern hemisphere, particularly Australia.

Scientists unmask the climate uncertainty monster — Last modified April 14, 2014 08:56
Increasing uncertainty in the climate system compels a greater urgency for climate change mitigation, according to new research from the University of Bristol.
Amazon inhales more carbon than it emits — Last modified March 25, 2014 15:30
A new study led by NASA and the University of Leeds has confirmed that natural forests in the Amazon remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere than they emit.

New maps highlight habitat corridors in the tropics — Last modified February 18, 2014 13:44
A team of Woods Hole Research Center (WHRC) scientists created maps of habitat corridors connecting protected areas in the tropics to incorporate biodiversity co-benefits into climate change mitigation strategies. Drs. Patrick Jantz, Scott Goetz, and Nadine Laporte describe their findings in an article entitled, “Carbon stock corridors to mitigate climate change and promote biodiversity in the tropics,” available online in the journal Nature Climate Change on January 26.
