For food-waste recycling, policy is key
Food scraps. Okay, those aren't the first words that come to mind when you think about the environment. But 22 percent of the municipal solid waste dropped into landfills or incincerators in the U.S. is, in fact, food that could be put to better use through composting and soil enrichment.

Sustainable fish farming is possible for the majority of coastal countries
Sustainable fish farming is possible for the majority of coastal countries
Nearly every coastal country in the world has the potential to meet its own domestic seafood needs through aquaculture, suggests a new study. Aquaculture is the farming of freshwater and saltwater aquatic organisms, including fish, crustaceans and molluscs such as oysters and mussels. The practice is the fastest-growing food sector, and it is hoped that aquaculture could help address increasing issues of food insecurity around the globe.

Canary in a coal mine: Survey captures global picture of air pollution’s effects on birds
A sparrow perches on a branch in Curtis Prairie at the UW Arboretum. The efficiency of birds' respiratory systems is thought to make them more vulnerable to pollutants in the air. Photo: Jeff Miller Famously, the use of caged birds to alert miners to the invisible dangers of gases such as carbon monoxide gave rise to the cautionary metaphor "canary in a coal mine." But other than the fact that exposure to toxic gases in a confined space kills caged birds before affecting humans - providing a timely warning to miners - what do we know about the effects of air pollution on birds?

How heat and drought kill trees
Drought-caused tree deaths are produced by a combination of hydraulic failure and carbon starvation, says new research published today in† Nature Ecology and Evolution .† The new finding, based on a meta-analysis by 62 scientists from across the world, will improve predictive models of how trees die in response to heat, drought, and other climate stresses.

Restoring tropical rainforests
Abandoned oil palm plantations can regenerate forest canopy to levels often found in primary forest, providing a means to protect important wildlife habitats that are under threat from forest decline. A team of researchers, including Cardiff University researchers at the Danau Girang Field Centre in Borneo, found that abandoned plantations could regenerate in as little as 17 years, helping to reconnect isolated patches of forest where the movement of plants and animals has become inhibited, restricting breeding and biodiversity.

Opinion: Measures of poverty and well-being still ignore the environment - this must change | University of Cambridge
Despite the value that humans get from nature, it is not included in measurements of poverty and well-being. Cambridge's Judith†Schleicher and†Bhaskar†Vira say it's about time this changed.† Without nature, humans could be neither healthy nor happy. And yet the natural world can be completely ransacked without causing even a tiny blip on our usual measures of economic progress or poverty.

Dramatic changes needed in farming practices to keep pace with climate change
Major changes in agricultural practices will be required to offset increases in nutrient losses due to climate change, according to research published by a Lancaster University-led team. To combat repeated, damaging storm events, which strip agricultural land of soil and nutrients, farmers are already adopting measures to conserve these assets where they are needed.

Cicada wings may inspire new surface technologies
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Researchers are looking to insects - specifically cicadas - for insight into the design of artificial surfaces with de-icing, self-cleaning and anti-fogging abilities. Their wings allow cicadas to fly, of course, but they also are good at repelling water - a condition that humans can appreciate, too.

Light pollution as a new threat to pollination
Light pollution as a new threat to pollination
Media releases, information for representatives of the media Media Relations (E) Artificial light disrupts nocturnal pollination and leads to a reduced number of fruits produced by the plant. This loss of night time pollination cannot be compensated by diurnal pollinators. The negative impact of artificial light at night on nocturnal pollinators might even propagate further to the diurnal community, as ecologists of the University of Bern were able to show.

Bold new approaches needed to shrink Gulf of Mexico dead zone and meet elusive goals
ANN ARBOR-Shrinking the annual Gulf of Mexico "dead zone" down to the size of Delaware will require a 59-percent reduction in the amount of nitrogen runoff that flows down the Mississippi River from as far away as the Corn Belt. That's the primary finding of a new study that used four computer models to see what it would take to reach the longstanding but elusive goal of cutting by about two-thirds the size of the Gulf of Mexico summer hypoxic zone, an area of low-to-no oxygen that can kill fish and other marine life.

’Missing lead’ in Flint water pipes confirms cause of crisis
ANN ARBOR-A study of lead service lines in Flint's damaged drinking water system reveals a Swiss cheese pattern in the pipes' interior crust, with holes where the lead used to be. The findings-led by researchers at the University of Michigan-support the generally accepted understanding that lead leached into the system because that water wasn't treated to prevent corrosion.
