'Keep it local' approach to protecting the rainforest can be more effective than government schemes
’Keep it local’ approach to protecting the rainforest can be more effective than government schemes
Conservation initiatives led by local and indigenous groups can be just as effective as schemes led by government, according to new research. In some cases in the Amazon rainforest, grassroots initiatives can be even more effective at protecting this vital ecosystem. This is particularly important due to widespread political resistance to hand over control over forests and other natural resources to local communities.

Self-assembling nanoparticle arrays can switch between a mirror and a window
Self-assembling nanoparticle arrays can switch between a mirror and a window
By finely tuning the distance between nanoparticles in a single layer, researchers have made a filter that can change between a mirror and a window. The development could help scientists create special materials whose optical properties can be changed in real time. These materials could then be used for applications from tuneable optical filters to miniature chemical sensors.

Poorer pupils get less help than better-off classmates with homework
New research from UCL finds that poorer pupils in England get less help with their homework than their better-off classmates. Dr John Jerrim (UCL Institute of Education) carried out analysis of the OECD's PISA survey, which has been published by the Sutton Trust today. The research found that just half (50%) of the most disadvantaged 15-year olds said their parents regularly helped with their homework, compared to 68% of their better-off classmates.
