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.

Blue hydrogen can help protect the climate

An international group of researchers led by the Paul Scherrer Institute and the Heriot-Watt University has carried out in-depth analyses of the climate impact of blue hydrogen. This is produced…

Ocean plastic is creating new communities of life on the high seas

Coastal organisms thrive on floating plastic debris in the “great pacific garbage patch”. Coastal plants and animals have found a new way to survive in the open ocean—by colonizing plastic…

Arctic Ocean started getting warmer decades earlier than we thought

The Arctic Ocean has been getting warmer since the beginning of the 20th century – decades earlier than records suggest – due to warmer water flowing into the delicate polar…

What’s in the water?

Researchers take a granular look at global inputs and impacts of human wastewater in coastal ecosystems. The tendency for most of us when it comes to human wastewater is out…

New models help welcome the world’s rarest sea lion as they return home

After 200 years of absence due to historic human pressures that once threatened their existence, New Zealand sea lions are returning to New Zealand’s mainland in an emerging story of…

Revealing the ramifications of ocean acidification for coralline algae

Researchers find that most coralline algae are negatively affected by ocean acidification, but some species may be more resilient than others. Scientists have long suspected that coralline algae are particularly…

Restoring coral health

Coral reef ecosystems are severely threatened by climate change. The urgent need to address the issue is driving a new era of innovation in reef science, shown by a global…

Tiny microscopic hunters could be a crystal ball for climate change

Simple measurements of these obscure organisms can help predict future CO2 emissions for warming ecosystems, study finds. It’s hard to know what climate change will mean for Earth’s interconnected and…

No silver bullet

Remoteness does not enhance coral reef resilience, according to marine ecologists. There’s a widespread hypothesis that links the resilience of coral reefs with their remoteness from human activities — the…

Shedding light on mysterious jellyfish diets

Jellyfish have voracious appetites, and they aren’t considered the most selective eaters. Almost anything that gets stuck to their tentacles winds up in the gelatinous sack that they use to…
