New research is the first of its kind to incorporate indigenous knowledge into predictive species distribution maps.
Millions of birds are killed every year in collisions with power lines. Now, scientists have discovered installing suspended, rotating devices known as ''flappers'' is the most effective way to reduce bird deaths.
Industrial-scale tropical deforestation is altering local climate as much as 100 years of global warming under a worst-case emissions scenario.
A new study examines flooding from Hurricanes Matthew and Florence and finds current hazard maps are inadequate for accurately assessing flood risks and protecting communities in North Carolina.
As climate change upends ecosystems, including fisheries, scientists are moving beyond documenting the impacts to recommending actions to mitigate and adapt to those impacts.
Refinancing national debt can be a powerful tool for conservation.
New research provides science-based way to identify flagship species for effective biodiversity conservation.
Scientists have created the first standardized, fine-scale map of global ecosystems, allowing them to better measure the effectiveness of protected areas and identify ecosystems in need of additional protection.
New science shows that remnant forests with the greatest tree-species richness also store the most carbon, creating a potential win-win for protecting biodiversity and reducing global carbon emissions.
New research identifies tropical countries where targeted investment can have the greatest impact on reducing global emissions in the short term.
New science shows that diverse natural forests with a mix of tree species provide more stable and reliable carbon capture than monoculture plantations in the long run.
