Towards Smaller And Less Palatable Fish Species In A Warmer World
Human activities drive changes in marine ecosystems, both directly through e.g. fishing and habitat modification, and indirectly through climate change. Warmer temperatures and associated oxygen decrease will influence the abundance, distribution and diversity of wild fish stocks. Previous studies showed that smaller fishes can cope... click to read more
Tiny barcodes for a global food chain
Do you know where your food comes from? How would you find out? Every year, an estimated 48 million Americans get sick from foodborne illnesses. Traditionally, when an outbreak occurs, such as the multi-state E. coli outbreak in romaine lettuce in 2018, the source of... click to read more

Today's drastic climate change is threatening fisheries worldwide, because the marine ecosystem is responding to climate-induced... click to read more
Why does biodiversity matter for agriculture?
Nature is a vital service provider for agriculture in many ways. Fruit trees and other pollinator-dependent crops are pollinated by wild insects like bumblebees, solitary bees, or flies. Other insects like predatory ladybugs or ground beetles eat pests that would otherwise damage or even destroy... click to read more
Rainfall is changing: when and where we need to be ready to adapt?
Climate change will affect rainfall patterns around the world. Because rainfall is such a variable quantity, and models still have a hard time providing reliable projections, few studies have to date ventured to evaluate if these future patterns will move the climate outside the range... click to read more
