Artificial photosynthesis uses sunlight to make biodegradable plastic

Synthesis of fumaric acid by a new method of artificial photosynthesis, using sunlight. In recent years, environmental problems caused by global warming have become more apparent due to greenhouse gases…

Virus plus microplastics equal double whammy for fish health

Increase in disease severity has implications for fish farms, marine life, human health. Microplastics—tiny particles generated as plastics weather and fragment—pose a growing threat to ecosystem and human health. A…

Mixture of crops provide ecological benefits for agricultural landscapes

Researchers at Göttingen University investigate attractiveness of wheat-bean crop mixtures for pollinating insects. There are often too few flowering plants in agricultural landscapes, which is one reason for the decline…

Kelp farms could help reduce coastal marine pollution

The water-filtering abilities of farmed kelp could help reduce marine pollution in coastal areas, according to a new University of Alaska Fairbanks-led study. The paper, published in the January issue…

Special drone collects environmental DNA from trees

Ecologists are increasingly using traces of genetic material left behind by living organisms left behind in the environment, called environmental DNA (eDNA), to catalogue and monitor biodiversity. Based on these…
