Three-quarters of insect population have been lost in nature reserves over three decades
Three-quarters of insect population have been lost in nature reserves over three decades The loss of bees, butterflies and other flying insects from within protected nature reserves has been even more severe than previously feared, a new report has revealed. The total biomass of flying insects in 63 nature reserves has decreased by more than 75 per cent since 1989 and above 80 per cent in the height of summer.

Tropical trees show coexistence is path to diversity
On small Barro Colorado Island, in the middle of the Panama Canal, hundreds of tree species thrive. Jacob Usinowicz, an ecologist, recalls visiting there one field season and being astounded by the number of mahogany seeds littering the tropical forest floor. "They produce seeds like maple trees, all these little helicopters, and the trees produce thousands of them," says Usinowicz, a former graduate student in the Department of Integrative Biology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Air quality-monitoring satellite in orbit
The first Copernicus mission dedicated to monitoring our atmosphere, Sentinel-5P, has been launched from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome in northern Russia. The 820 kg satellite was carried into orbit on a Rockot launcher at 09:27 GMT (11:27 CEST) today. The first stage separated 2 min 16 sec after liftoff, followed by the fairing and second stage at 3 min 3 sec and 5 min 19 sec, respectively.

Beyond EPA’s Clean Power decision: Climate action window could close as early as 2023
ANN ARBOR-As the Trump administration repeals the U.S. Clean Power Plan, a new study from the University of Michigan underscores the urgency of reducing greenhouse gas emissions-from both environmental and economic perspectives. For the U.S.'s most energy-hungry sectors-automotive and electricity-the study identifies timetables for action, after which the researchers say it will be too late to stave off a climate tipping point.

Soot-covered birds provide clues to 20th-century pollution
Horned Larks collected in Illinois between 1904 and 1916 (left) and California and British Columbia between 1903 and 1922 (right) show the effects that coal soot had on bird feathers. Horned Larks are cute songbirds with white bellies and yellow chins-at least, now they are. One hundred years ago, at the height of urban smoke pollution in the United States, their pale feathers were stained dark gray by soot in the atmosphere.

Ocean critters emit greenhouse gas
Scientists have shown that ocean clams and worms are releasing a significant amount of potentially harmful greenhouse gas into the atmosphere. The team, from Cardiff University and Stockholm University, have shown that the ocean critters are producing large amounts of the strongest greenhouse gases - methane and nitrous oxides - from the bacteria in their guts.

Sowing wheat earlier can help increase yields in India
ANN ARBOR-Yield gaps in wheat production in India can be countered with an earlier sowing date, says a University of Michigan researcher. Using a new way to measure wheat yields, Meha Jain, assistant professor at the U-M School for Environment and Sustainability, found that the wheat produce in eastern Indo-Gangetic Plains, India's main wheat growing region, can grow by 110 percent if the best farm management practices, including earlier sow dates, are implemented.

Soil holds potential to slow global warming, two studies show
ANN ARBOR-If you want to do something about global warming, look under your feet. Managed well, soil's ability to trap carbon dioxide is potentially much greater than previously estimated, according to researchers who say the resource could "significantly" offset increasing global emissions. The scientists also call for a reversal of federal cutbacks to related research programs to learn more about this valuable resource.

Soil holds potential to slow global warming
The land under our feet and the plant matter it contains could offset a significant amount of carbon emissions if managed properly. More research is needed to unlock soil's potential to mitigate global warming, improve crop yields and increase resilience to extreme weather.

Air Pollution, Greenhouse Gas Emissions Cost More Than Accidents When Shipping Petroleum
While the policy debate surrounding crude oil transportation costs has emphasized accidents and spills, a new study by Carnegie Mellon University and University of Pittsburgh researchers indicates the debate is overlooking a more serious cost - air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. The researchers presented their findings in a paper, titled " The External Costs of Transporting Petroleum Products by Pipelines and Rail: Evidence From Shipments of Crude Oil from North Dakota ," published by The National Bureau of Economic Research.
