2018-10-01T07:00:00Z Die dramatischen Folgen des heimischen Artensterbens Es wird still und einsam um uns herum, der Mensch vernichtet seine eigenen Lebensgrundlagen: Die Insektenbestände brechen um über 80 Prozent ein, Tausende Quadratkilometer Ackerrandstreifen und andere Lebensräume wurden in den letzten Jahren vernichtet, Meerestiere sind plastikverseucht - die Vielfalt des Leb...[Read More]
2015-05-14T07:00:00Z The fossil record offers a surprising image: that of evolutionary radiations characterized by intense increases in cash or by the sudden diversification of a single species group, while others stagnate or die out. In a modern world, science carries an often pessimistic message, surrounded by studies of global warming and its effects, extinction crisis, emerging di...[Read More]
2008-11-05T08:00:00Z In 1936 a German chemist identified certain organic molecules that he had extracted from ancient rocks and oils as the fossil remains of chlorophyll--presumably from plants that had lived and died millions of years in the past. It was another twenty-five years before this insight was developed and the term "biomarker" coined to describe fossil molecules whose molecu...[Read More]
2003-05-15T07:00:00Z The earth is continuously changing and evolving yet it is unclear how environmental changes will affect us in years to come. What changes are inevitable? What changes, if any, are beneficial? And what can we do as citizens of this planet to protect it and our future generations?
Larry Slobodkin, one of the leading pioneers of modern ecology, offers compelling answer...[Read More]

What happens when humans impose their spatial and tempora...[Read More]
2016-07-11T07:00:00Z O'Neill Public School 8th grade science class teaches about the ecology of their local area through easily understood character narration. Designed for elementary aged learners as a introduction to basic life science concepts dealing with ecology.
2006-11-16T08:00:00Z Ecologists interested in assessing landscapes and ecosystems must measure biomass, cover, and the density or frequency of various key species. Recently, sampling designs for measuring species richness and diversity, patterns of plant diversity, species-environment relationships, and species distributions have become fine-grained, as it has become increasingly import...[Read More]
