Bumblebee populations higher in Detroit than in some less-urbanized areas; vacant lots could be a factor
ANN ARBOR'A new study of native bumblebee populations in southeastern Michigan cities found, surprisingly, that Detroit has more of the large-bodied bees than some surrounding, less urbanized locations. The University of Michigan students who conducted the study suspect that the large amount of vacant or idle land in Detroit may boost the bumblebee population by providing nesting sites and flowers for food.

Using google to map our ecosystem
Researchers in the Singapore-ETH Centre's Future Cities Laboratory developed a method to quantify ecosystem services of street trees. Using nearly 100,000 images from Google Street View, the study helps further understanding on how green spaces contribute to urban sustainability. Do you remember the last time you escaped the hot summer sun to enjoy a cool reprieve in the shade beneath a broad-leafed tree? While sizzling summer days may seem far away right now in the northern hemisphere, tropical cities like Singapore deal with solar radiation on a daily basis.

New global evidence of the role of humans, urbanization in rapid evolution
It has long been suspected that humans and the urban areas we create are having an important - and surprisingly current and ongoing - effect on evolution, which may have significant implications for the sustainability of global ecosystems. A new multi-institution study led by the University of Washington that examines 1,600 global instances of phenotypic change - alterations to species' observable traits such as size, development or behavior - shows more clearly than ever that urbanization is affecting the genetic makeup of species that are crucial to ecosystem health and success.

Weathering of Cement is an Important but Overlooked Sink for Carbon Dioxide
A new multinational study shows that cement acts as a significant carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) sink, one that has hitherto gone unaccounted for in global carbon-cycle analyses. Drawing upon field surveys conducted in China coupled with a meta-analysis of previous studies done on cement, a team led by Caltech's Zhu Liu found that between 1930 and 2013, weathering of cement absorbed about 4.5 gigatons of carbon (GtC) from atmospheric CO 2 .

Schmallenberg virus may reappear, warn experts
Schmallenberg virus is unlikely to be circulating in the south of England, but more needs to be done to warn vets and farmers of future disease outbreaks, a new University of Liverpool study reports. Lack of Schmallenberg virus circulation makes governments, vets and farmers lose awareness, but decreasing herd immunity could lead to outbreaks in the years to come, the research suggests.
