Land degradation - the reduction in the capacity of the land to support human and other life on earth - is one of the biggest challenges the Earth is facing.
Citizen scientists can play a needed role in keeping an eye on water quality, according a team of researchers.
A study of satellite images of dozens of U.S. cities shows trees and vegetation in urban areas turn green earlier but are less sensitive to temperature change than vegetation in surrounding rural regions.
Plants that break some of the ‘rules’ of ecology by adapting in unconventional ways may have a higher chance of surviving climate change, according to researchers from Trinity and the University of Queensland.
Tropical cyclones in the North West Pacific can dry the archipelagos of Southeast Asia, as they reduce humidity in the area with their associated winds. A new study of the CMCC Foundation shows causes and implications of this relation.
Understanding the Earth’s carbon cycle has important implications for understanding climate change and the health of biospheres.

In the field of cancer research, the idea that scientists can disrupt cancer growth by changing the environment in which cancerous cells divide is growing in popularity.
Mass melting of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet was a major cause of high sea levels during a period known as the Last Interglacial (129,000-116,000 years ago), an international team of scientists led by UNSW's Chris Turney has found.
