Body growth affected by climate change
The number of wild boar in Europe is rapidly increasing, leading to much controversy. Understanding what factors may contribute to this population growth, as well as predict how populations will change under climate change, is essential as wild boar incur very real economic and public health costs.
A crude awakening: why should we care about contaminated copepods?
Who hasn’t seen the oil covered seabirds and big-eyed otters in the news after massive oil spills like Exxon Valdez and Deepwater Horizon? The images represent how oil production can impact the marine environment and are visually powerful.
Role of silicon carbide (SiC) in silicon/ferro silicon (Si/FeSi) process
The demand for high quality silicon is rapidly increasing in the solar cell industry and for production of photovoltaic applications. To meet this demand, the industrial production of silicon must be made more effective.

Using technology to map ice algae
Life is thriving in the Arctic beneath ice. At the base of the food web is Ice algae. They are an important food source for life in the arctic sea, and flourish in this extreme environment. Modern technology gives us exciting possibilities to learn more about them and how they have adapted to their environment.
Birds and bugs: Trapping and tracking the vital insect food for young birds
Spring has turned into summer quickly and the insects which are vital food for bird chicks are here. While recent studies have drawn attention to dramatic declines of entire insect populations, little is known about consequences for other species depending on insects for food, including many birds, which may face the same plight.
