A new study finds that a primary culprit has been rising gas prices—spurring denser development in communities across the country.
Thousands of kilometers of shoreline would qualify as cost-effective candidates for mangrove forest and coral reef restoration, thanks to their ability to reduce flooding, new research shows.
Scientists use satellites to track deforestation in forest reserves around the world, and to learn what factors make for stronger protections.
New research suggests that governments should designate protected areas based on land qualities—not current species’ locations.
These soggy places can hold carbon at ten times the density of a forest
The cost effective conservation strategy could work for other mammals
When researchers trained a machine-learning model on global seed dispersal, they made a jarring discovery: there are too few animals to move plant seeds far enough to keep pace with climate change.
A comprehensive review of the scientific literature finds three major places where large animal conservation and climate mitigation goals intersect
Offsets promise to make up for environmental damage in one place by repairing it elsewhere. But do they really work?
In the most detailed study of its kind, scientists investigated biodiversity offsets purchased by owners of one of the world’s largest nickel mines. In this case, it looks like the mining company succeeded.
