30 million euros for research into climate change feedbacks
30 million euros for research into climate change feedbacks
Climate change can accelerate due to feedback mechanisms: complex phenomena caused by climate change that in turn can further drive climate change. An example is the extra CO2 emissions from thawing permafrost. Research into the influence of feedback mechanisms in the long term has been ongoing, and modern climate change research is obviously happening as well, but the connection between the two has so far been underemphasized.

Freshwater mussels: Investigating the remarkable reproductive cycle of Michigan’s threatened mollusks
EXPERT Q&A Michigan is home to 43 species of native freshwater mussels, 30 of which are considered to be at risk of extinction. Among the many factors that threaten the hard-shelled bottom dwellers are competition from invasive zebra and quagga mussels, water pollution, and-especially-dams. The Huron River in Southeast Michigan, for example, has 19 dams on its main stem and at least 96 across its entire drainage.
