- Identification of hotspots of at-risk terrestrial vertebrate species in the south-central Great Plains of North America: A tool to inform and address regional-scale conservation
- Source: Journal for Nature Conservation
- Author(s): Demi Gary, Krista Mougey, Nancy E. McIntyre, Kerry L. Griffis-Kyle
- Abstract: Biodiversity is being lost at an unprecedented rate, and resources for conservation efforts are limited. This is particularly problematic in the Great Plains of North America, where land-cover conversion for agriculture and energy production has reduced habitat for many species.
- Diet and food production must radically change to save planet
- Transformation of the global food system is urgently needed as more than 3 billion people are malnourished (including people who are undernourished and overnourished), and food production is exceeding planetary boundaries — driving climate change, biodiversity loss, pollution due to over-application…
- Economist find a global tax on carbon may be feasible
- There is a consistently high level of public support across nations for a global carbon tax if the tax policy is carefully designed, according to a recent survey.
- Global patterns and dynamics of climate–groundwater interactions
- Source: Nature Climate Change
- Author(s): Cuthbert, M.O., Gleeson, T., et al.
- Abstract: Groundwater, the largest available store of global freshwater1, is relied upon by more than two billion people … Adaptation strategies must therefore account for the hydraulic memory of groundwater systems, which can buffer climate change impacts on water resources in many regions, but may also lead to a long, but initially hidden, legacy of anthropogenic and climatic impacts on river flows and groundwater-dependent ecosystems.
