Prioritizing land to avoid species loss could reduce species extinction risk twice as efficiently

Credit: International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis Amid an alarming surge in global habitat destruction and species extinction, new research by an international team of scientists proposes a new global approach to choosing protected lands that could reduce species extinction risk twice as efficiently as current methods. Protecting key ecosystems and habitats is widely accepted

Pollination by more than one bee species found to improve cherry harvest

The combination of honey bees and mason bees as pollinators yields a much bigger harvest than with only one species.

Europe’s wild bird species are on the brink, but there are ways to bring them back

Almost two out of every five species of wild bird are of conservation concern across Europe, according to an updated and comprehensive assessment of their population status. That means these species are declining and becoming more scarce across the continent. Among the birds of conservation concern are some familiar species, including dunnock, goldcrest and meadow

Remains of new species of duck-billed dinosaur found in Chile

Credit: Science Advances (2023). DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.adg2456 Remains of a species of herbivorous dinosaur previously unknown in the southern hemisphere have been discovered in Chile, challenging long-held beliefs about the range of duck-billed dinosaurs, scientists said Friday. Measuring up to four meters (13 feet) in length and weighing a ton, Gonkoken nanoi lived 72 million years
