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.
The Kavli Prize to pioneers in Electron Microscopy!
