Melting ice sheets will have global impact on ocean tides
November 10, 2017 02:02 PM - Bangor University

Whilst it is widely accepted that sea level is rising because of the melting of the massive sheets covering Greenland and Antarctica, a new paper in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Oceans, by scientists at Bangor University in collaboration with Harvard and Oregon State Universities in the US, and McGill University in Canada, shows that the impact of the melting of these ice sheets will go far beyond just changing water levels. It could have further reaching impacts on global climate.

Research shows ice sheets as large as Greenland's melted fast in a warming climate
November 10, 2017 11:07 AM - Purdue University

New research published in Science shows that climate warming reduced the mass of the Cordilleran Ice Sheet by half in as little as 500 years, indicating the Greenland Ice Sheet could have a similar fate.

Breeding highly productive corn has reduced its ability to adapt
November 9, 2017 01:25 PM - University of Wisconsin-Madison

Stuck where they are, plants have to adapt to their environments, responding to stresses like drought or pests by changing how they grow.

On a broader scale, crop breeders need to be able to develop new varieties that are adapted to a new location or changing growing conditions in the same area.
