Last fall, the Mullen fire west of Laramie raged for the better part of two months, burning more than 176,000 acres and 70 structures in Carbon and Albany counties, and in Jackson County, Colo.
Birds build nests to keep eggs and baby nestlings warm during cool weather, but also make adjustments in nest insulation in such a way the little ones can keep cool in very hot conditions.
For the most accurate accounting of a product’s environmental impact, scientists look at the product’s entire life cycle, from cradle to grave.
When animals are hot, they eat less. This potentially fatal phenomenon has been largely overlooked in wild animals, explain researchers from The Australian National University (ANU) in a new article.
Woodlands along streams and rivers are an important part of California’s diverse ecology.
A study led by Oldenburg researchers finds new explanation for the accumulation of organic compounds in oxygen-depleted marine areas.
The combination of sea level rise, tides, storm surge and waves has increased the overtopping of natural and artificial coastal protection by nearly 50% in the last two decades.
A new study led by researchers from McGill University and INRAE found that between 51-60% of the 64 million kilometres of rivers and streams on Earth that they investigated stop flowing periodically, or run dry for part of the year.
To counter the effects of climate change on drylands, a new study led by York's Professor Lindsay Stringer suggests that global access to water should be managed in a more integrated way.
As demand for electricity rises and climate change brings more frequent and extreme storms, residents in rural and suburban communities must have access to the minimal electricity they need to survive a large, long-duration (LLD) power outage.
