May 31, 2023 New paper offers urban governance actors guidance to prioritize citizens that are most vulnerable to climate change Municipal climate action plans often identify equity and justice as goals, but engagement with these concepts is mostly rhetorical. A new study from the University of Waterloo details how planners can bridge the gap and challenge the current state of climate change and social inequity.
How does competition influence moral behavior? Studies have so far found evidence for both a negative and a positive influence of competition on moral behavior. Researchers from Innsbruck, Vienna, Stockholm, and Amsterdam are using this unanswered question to conduct a meta-study that examines the extent to which different study designs can account for variability in scientific outcomes. The study was recently published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).
The majority of fish populations in the sea are responding to global warming by relocating towards colder waters nearer the north and south poles, according to the latest research on the impact of climate change on our oceans.
Selecting the right method gives users a more accurate picture of how their model is behaving, so they are better equipped to correctly interpret its predictions.
But the effect of providing information is relatively small, shows a study by the University of Bonn. Whole grain products are healthy, but not particularly popular. However, providing information of their benefits can change that, at least a little bit.
Not so long ago, seeing a griffon vulture in Switzerland was an extraordinary sight. For the past ten years, the species has been regularly crossing our skies. Many vulture species are threatened worldwide. The return of the griffon vulture to Europe goes against this trend and is a great success for nature conservation
A model study reveals that the seeds of plants in small, fragmented habitats can abruptly evolve in such a way that they can no longer travel long distances. As a consequence, plants are less successful in reaching other habitats. This insight shows that fragmented natural areas may need to be better connected than previously assumed. The research, conducted by biodiversity researchers Monique de Jager and Merel Soons , was published yesterday in the scientific journal Ecology and Evolution.
