'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.

Leaf size shrinks with latitude to avoid cold snaps
Leaf size shrinks with latitude to avoid cold snaps
New research overturns the idea that keeping cool controls leaf size with latitude, instead finding that resisting frost damage is the main driver. From the large leaves of the tropical rainforests to the needles of trees in the far north, global leaf size varies a lot with location. The most surprising result was that over much of the world the maximum size of leaves is set not by the risk of overheating, but rather by the risk of damaging frost at night.

Fishing for DNA during breeding season could help control invasive species
Fishing for DNA during breeding season could help control invasive species
Research reveals that an invasive crayfish species is easier to detect in water samples during breeding, which could lead to better control. An invasive species is any animal or plant that is introduced to an area and has the capacity to cause harm. They can impact native wildlife by outcompeting them for food and damaging local environments, for example grey squirrels outcompeting reds.

Ray of hope for more abundant wheat crops
Ray of hope for more abundant wheat crops
Crops such as wheat could be up to 21% more efficient at turning the sun's energy into food, according to new research by Lancaster University. The food chain relies on plants using sunlight to turn carbon dioxide from the air into food. This process, known as photosynthesis, is essential for plants to grow, including crops like wheat.

Sustainable fish farming is possible for the majority of coastal countries
Nearly every coastal country in the world has the potential to meet its own domestic seafood needs through aquaculture, suggests a new study. Aquaculture is the farming of freshwater and saltwater aquatic organisms, including fish, crustaceans and molluscs such as oysters and mussels. The practice is the fastest-growing food sector, and it is hoped that aquaculture could help address increasing issues of food insecurity around the globe.

Restoring tropical rainforests
Abandoned oil palm plantations can regenerate forest canopy to levels often found in primary forest, providing a means to protect important wildlife habitats that are under threat from forest decline. A team of researchers, including Cardiff University researchers at the Danau Girang Field Centre in Borneo, found that abandoned plantations could regenerate in as little as 17 years, helping to reconnect isolated patches of forest where the movement of plants and animals has become inhibited, restricting breeding and biodiversity.

Opinion: Measures of poverty and well-being still ignore the environment - this must change | University of Cambridge
Despite the value that humans get from nature, it is not included in measurements of poverty and well-being. Cambridge's Judith Schleicher and Bhaskar Vira say it's about time this changed.  Without nature, humans could be neither healthy nor happy. And yet the natural world can be completely ransacked without causing even a tiny blip on our usual measures of economic progress or poverty.

Dramatic changes needed in farming practices to keep pace with climate change
Major changes in agricultural practices will be required to offset increases in nutrient losses due to climate change, according to research published by a Lancaster University-led team. To combat repeated, damaging storm events, which strip agricultural land of soil and nutrients, farmers are already adopting measures to conserve these assets where they are needed.

Can the UK’s gas grid go green? New white paper explores options
Options for a greener gas grid are explored by researchers from Imperial College London in a white paper out today. The gas grid or network currently transports natural gas to industries, households and businesses. Due to concerns over greenhouse gas emissions, scientific scenarios to tackle climate change show a reduced role for gas networks in the future, with policymakers preferring routes that involve decarbonised electricity.

European cooperation could provide more stable wind power
Europe could make much better use of its wind resources if capacity was spread out instead of being concentrated around the North Sea. This is the conclusion reached by a group of energy and climate researchers at ETH Zürich and Imperial College London, who for the first time have combined a long-term analysis of predominant weather patterns with Europe-wide wind electricity generation data.

Why T. Rex and elephants lumber behind cheetahs
Why T. Rex and elephants lumber behind cheetahs
Scientists have discovered why the largest animals are not the fastest, and have used a model to predict the speed of extinct animals like dinosaurs. As animals get larger, they get faster - but only up to a point. A rabbit could beat a mouse in a race, just as a mouse could beat a beetle. But nothing beats a cheetah on land, even though there are plenty of larger animals like elephants.
