Ecology, The Environment and Conservation

This complex theme deals primarily with interactions between organisms and the environmental factors that impact them, but to a greater extent between individual inanimate environmental factors.

innovations-report offers informative reports and articles on topics such as climate protection, landscape conservation, ecological systems, wildlife and nature parks and ecosystem efficiency and balance.

Microplastic pollution of the Baltic Sea

New insights into behaviour, sinks and reduction measures. In order to assess the impact of microplastics on the oceans, it is necessary to know their quantity and their behaviour in…

Climate and resources can be protected with remanufactured medical devices

New study proves A research team from the Fraunhofer Institute for Environmental, Safety and Energy Technology UMSICHT was commissioned by the Medical Remanufacturing company Vanguard AG to investigate the positive…

Method for temporal monitoring of microplastic sedimentation

The effects of microplastics on our health and the environment are being rigorously studied all across the world. Researchers are identifying microplastic sources and their potential routes to the environment…

Aquaculture drives spread of antibiotic resistance in the ocean

Researchers led by assistant professor Dr. Jörn Petersen of the Leibniz Institute DSMZ-German Collection of Microorganisms and Cell Cultures GmbH have for the first time investigated the relevance of antibiotic…

Fingerprint for the formation of nitrous oxide emissions

Scientists succeeded in studying emissions of the greenhouse gas N2O under the influence of environmental impacts in an unprecedented level of detail. Scientists led by Eliza Harris and Michael Bahn…

MARLIT, artificial intelligence against marine litter

Litter that floats and pollutes the ocean Floating sea macro-litter is a threat to the conservation of marine ecosystems worldwide. The largest density of floating litter is in the great…

One-two punch against corals: how stress factors interact

A new study in the prestigious journal Science Advances shows that stress from rising water temperatures reduces ability of corals to adapt to ocean acidification. About a quarter of the…

Braking dust

The broad introduction of particle filters reduced the emission of combustion generated fine and ultrafine particles significantly. As a result, brake disc and tire abrasion are moving into the focus…

Native biodiversity collapse in the Eastern Mediterranean

Most native species are going locally extinct, while introduced tropical species thrive. The coastline of Israel is one of the warmest areas in the Mediterranean Sea. Here, most marine species…

How to identify heat-stressed corals

‘Coral hospital’ tool could help safeguard reefs facing climate change Researchers have found a novel way to identify heat-stressed corals, which could help scientists pinpoint the coral species that need…
