Wildlife friendly plantations
Wildlife friendly plantations
Plantations in the Amazon could be more wildlife friendly if they were surrounded by natural forest, according to a prize winning PhD study. Vast areas of the Amazon tropic forest are being cleared for plantations with huge implications not only for biodiversity, but for how well the Amazon functions as an ecosystem.

Harnessing the power of algae: new, greener fuel cells move step closer to reality
A new design of algae-powered fuel cells that is five times more efficient than existing plant and algal models, as well as being potentially more cost-effective to produce and practical to use, has been developed by researchers at the University of Cambridge.  This a big step forward in the search for alternative, greener fuels Paolo Bombelli As the global population increases, so too does energy demand.

Scientists simulate the climate of Game of Thrones
Scientists from the Universities of Bristol, Cardiff, and Southampton have used a Climate Model to simulate and explore the climate of the world of Game of Thrones. The results show that The Wall, where the land of Westeros is guarded from the White Walkers, has a climate in winter similar to that of Lapland, whereas Casterly Rock, the stronghold of the scheming Lannisters, has a climate similar to that of Houston, Texas, and Changsha in China.

Scientists propose process to protect African elephants
Scientists propose process to protect African elephants
Threatened African elephants could be better protected using approaches developed during the ending of apartheid, conflict resolution in Colombia and international climate change negotiations. A group of leading scientists from around the world, including Lancaster University, have outlined a policy process that they believe could break the current deadlock in negotiations on ivory and help protect our largest land mammals.

Carbon capture is helped by oil revenue, but it may not be enough
Carbon capture is helped by oil revenue, but it may not be enough
The oil industry incentivises the development of carbon-capturing tech, but researchers say this will not reduce emissions to low enough levels. Carbon dioxide can be used to extract oil, accelerating the development carbon-capturing technologies and limiting climate change. However, in a new analysis researchers say this will not be enough to reduce emissions to the level recommended by climate scientists.

Hidden nitrate pollution beneath our feet threatens water supplies worldwide
Researchers have found vast quantities of nitrate are stored in the rocky layer between our soils and the water table Researchers have quantified for the first time the long term threat to global drinking water posed by agricultural pollution trapped in the rocks beneath our feet. In a paper published , researchers from the British Geological Survey (BGS) and Lancaster University show that vast quantities of nitrate are stored in the rocky layer between our soils and the water table.
