Nematode worms cause billions of dollars of agricultural damage each year. But they produce a compound that conversely could actually protect crops against disease.
A thin film of water-repelling engineered wood could be a low-cost, sustainable membrane for getting salt out of seawater.
How people use land may have far more influence on whether the Amazon burns than does climate change.
The themes and narratives that frame media coverage of climate change differ from one country to the next and are shaped by the economy and other characteristics of a country.
Researchers harness a microbe to create crops that—with a little more tweaking—might one day use less synthetic fertilizer.
In parts of northern India, leopards thrive—not because they're protected, but because people regard them as fellow persons, allowing a culture of coexistence to flourish.
Like other forms of geoengineering, oceanic iron fertilization is controversial. So it’s a bit unsettling to realize that this process might already be happening, albeit unintentionally.
Flicking LEDs rhythmically on and off could bring down the carbon footprint of indoor farms—while keeping harvests high.
As scientists learn more about the importance of animals to nature’s carbon-sequestering capabilities, they’ve come to understand that extinctions and extirpations are climate issues.
A new review suggests that to maximize public support for a carbon tax, governments should use some of the revenue to promote environmental projects, and some to make the policy fairer via redistribution to vulnerable groups.
