U-M scientists teach biodiversity using preserved specimens dating back 100 years

How can we make residential neighborhoods more sustainable by 2050?
If the aim of a 2,000 Watt Society is to be achieved, peri-urban residential neighborhoods - where the average single-family home consumes 6.5 times more power than that target - must adapt. An EPFL thesis, which has just been awarded a scholarly distinction, explores ways of hitting the target in Vaud canton, but which could also be applied to the whole of Switzerland.

Limiting the loss of nature
With only about half of Earth's terrestrial surface remaining as natural vegetation, a University of Queensland-led team has proposed an international goal to halt its continued loss. The team, led by Professor Martine Maron , examined how a global goal of ‘no net loss' of natural ecosystems could work, where some nations seek net increases in over-depleted natural vegetation, while recognising that for others, limited further losses of ecosystems might be unavoidable.
