A study by the Department of Agronomy of the UCO, IFAPA and the IAS - CSIC analyses production between 2014 and 2019.
Noise pollution may hold significant consequences for natural communities. Before this study, no long-term research had examined whether patterns persist or communities can recover. Using a long-term system, researchers found support for long-term negative effects of noise on seedling recruitment foundational tree species, evenness of woody plants, and increasingly dissimilar vegetation communities with differences in noise levels. Seedling recruitment and community composition did not recover following noise removal, likely due to effects on seed dispersers.
A new study published in Elementa by researchers at the University of California, Santa Cruz and NOAA examines traditional aspects of seafood sustainability alongside greenhouse gas emissions to better understand the 'carbon footprint' of US tuna fisheries.
A year of evidence and analysis finds the pandemic has severely disrupted food systems and upended livelihoods, but also that responses have demonstrated the power of well-crafted policies to blunt the impact of major shocks while laying the groundwork for stronger, more resilient food systems.
Two opposing evolutionary forces explain the presence of the two different colors of spotted salamander egg masses at ponds in Pennsylvania, according to a new study led by a Penn State biologist. Understanding the processes that maintain biological diversity in wild populations may allow researchers to predict how species will respond to global change.
Adding more legumes, such as beans, peas and lentils, to European crop rotations could provide nutritional and environmental benefits, shows a recent study. The authors use a first-of-its-kind approach to show that the increased cultivation of legumes would deliver higher nutritional value at lower environmental and resource costs. This provides additional evidence for strategies to meet the European Union's urgent environmental targets.
What The Study Did: Changes in quality of diet from different sources of food among U.S. children and adults from 2003 to 2018 were examined in this survey study.
Moving endangered species to new locations is often used as part of species conservation strategies, and can help to restore degraded ecosystems. But scientists say there is a high risk that these relocations are accidentally spreading diseases and parasites.
Really big systems, like ocean currents and weather, work on really big scales. And so too does your plastic waste, according to new research from Janice Brahney from the Department of Watershed Sciences.
