Creatures that make their homes in tropical waters have enjoyed mostly unchanged temperatures for the past twenty thousand years. Now, new research from the University of Adelaide suggests that these extremely biodiverse areas will be hit the hardest by climate change-induced oceanic warming – and the wildlife is not ready to adapt.
Revegetating green spaces within cities can improve soil quality and has been linked to human health benefits.
Among the vast number of native species damaged by the recent bushfire crisis, we must not forget native pollinators. These animals, mainly insects such as native bees, help sustain ecosystems by pollinating native plants.
With our support, the International Panel for Climate Change has now documented the effects of global climate change on every biome on earth.
Conserving global biodiversity and preventing extinction is as much about digging into the past as it is about finding the new.
Technology improving species distribution modelling supports evidence-based decision making for natural resources management.
The exploitation of the land and sea is the number one reason for biodiversity extinction, according to a new report.
