The ties that bind: Joint children may strengthen stepfamily ties to older parents
Researchers have been concerned that as the makeup of America's families grows more complex, adult children in stepfamilies may not be as willing as those in biological families to care for aging parents. But a research team led by faculty at University of Michigan have found that stepfamilies that share a joint biological child spend similar amounts of time together as biological families in which partners have only joint biological children.

Sea level rise: rapid and unstoppable unless Paris Agreement targets met
Sea level rise: rapid and unstoppable unless Paris Agreement targets met
New research , models the impacts on the Antarctic Ice Sheet of several different global warming scenarios and the resulting effects on global sea levels. The study was led by the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and included a researcher from McGill University. The scenarios that were considered range from meeting the Paris Agreement target of 2°C warming and an aspirational 1.5°C scenario to our current course which, if not altered, will yield three or more degrees of warming.

SeaSolv enables waste-free multiproduct biorefinery of seaweed
Seaweeds ('macroalgae') are rich in valuable nutrients for food, nutraceuticals or pharmaceuticals. However, these are not easily extracted. In the SeaSolv project, Wageningen University & Research (WUR), together with international partners, has developed an innovative waste-free method for the multi-product biorefinery of these substances.
