New research shows saltwater aquariums are a multi-billion dollar industry with more than 6 million hobbyists. That could mean a lot of people interested in protecting reefs.
Sunken ships creates obstacles for bottom-trawling, creating a refuge for marine creatures.
One research team meticulously demonstrated the long-term benefits of low-intensity forest fires; while another documented the short-term political barriers.
Bright lights cause cats to shun important habitat such as road crossings, but they could also be used to discourage animals from preying on livestock
Left untamed by predators, hungry plant-eaters can wreak havoc on already damaged ecosystems, a new wide-ranging survey finds.
A team of scientists mapped out a series of kelp forest “stepping stones” calibrated to where habitat will exist and how species might move.
Drawing on cutting-edge technology, two research groups have independently demonstrated the potential for tracking salmon with AI in one case and DNA floating in the water in the other.
Scientists in an Ecuadorian forest used audio recorders and AI to gauge biodiversity. Such tools could revolutionize monitoring for ecosystem health.
Scientists uncover which genes make coral more resistant to a deadly disease, another step on the road to industrial-scale coral farming.
There has been surprisingly little evidence on a global scale that wildlife reserves work. Until now.
New research underscoring the efficacy of protected areas also offers some provocative insights—e.g., the benefits to species living in well-run countries is roughly equal to the benefit of living inside a protected area.
