  • Ecological resilience of Arctic marine food webs to climate change
    • Source: Nature Climate Change
    • Author(s): Gary P. Griffith et al
    • The resilience of a marine food web to climate change is investigated through a combination of multiple and nested species interactions. The Kongsfjorden food web adapts and maintains core ecological processes during…

  • Data Integration for Large-Scale Models of Species Distributions
    • Source: Trends in Ecology & Evolution
    • Author(s): Nick J.B. Isaac et al
    • With the expansion in the quantity and types of biodiversity data being collected, there is a need to find ways to combine these different sources to provide cohesive summaries of species’ potential and realized distributions in space and time. Recently, model-based data integration has emerged as a…
  • Land restoration in Ethiopia pays off but climate change necessitates many strategies
    • Source: Land Degradation & Development
    • Author(s): Wuletawu Abera et al
    • In the last decade, Ethiopia has invested more than US $1.2 billion annually in restoring landscapes in several regions of the country. Research takes stock of Ethiopia’s major restoration projects and investigates their impact on ecosystem services. Researchers say their work can help policymakers tailor…
  • Mapping global biodiversity change
    • Source: Science
    • Author(s): Shane A. Blowes et al
    • A new study which focuses on mapping biodiversity change in marine and land ecosystems shows that loss of biodiversity is most prevalent in the tropic, with changes in marine ecosystems outpacing those on land.
