In this new epoch, human influence is ubiquitous in the natural world. Coverage of terrestrial, freshwater, and marine ecosystems in Anthropocene magazine takes a critical look at humans’ changing relationship with the natural world—and ways to promote biodiversity in the novel ecosystems we’ve created.
As we brace for fresh environmental onslaughts to be leveled by the incoming administration, a sleeper cell in the federal government itself may just provide resistance—and even resilience—in the face of it.
New study finds that birds caught on California farms with nearby wildlands had less problem bacteria than those at more manicured farms.
According to a new estimate, reducing ozone pollution has saved 1.5 billion birds over the past 40 years.
Scientists and the Wuikinuxv Nation in British Columbia form an unusual partnership to study how native fishers and grizzly bears can share scarce salmon runs.
The Human Age will be shaped by the species we create and foster as well as the ones we kill off
For decades, humans have modeled technology on observations of the natural world. But new discoveries about nature—and tools for manipulating it—have opened up novel approaches potentially more powerful than mere imitation to solving Human Age problems.
The world needs a standard tool to compare species conservation efforts. An international team just built one.
The STAR metric shows how much a given action can prevent biodiversity loss. The higher the score, the higher the potential to reduce extinctions
In a ground-breaking study, scientists reveal how the combined power of biodiversity—in this case, pest control and pollination services—is greater than individual ecological services.
The idea is pretty much what it sounds like. The trick is to get from here to there.
With data from over 1,000 sensors across Europe—and running as much as half a quadrillion calculations per second—the team has created exquisitely detailed maps pinpointing cool habitat oases in a warming planet
