Palaeobiodiversity and Palaeoenvironments is an international journal providing a...
Double trouble for water life
Excess phosphorus and nitrogen produced by human activities on neighboring land is making its way into our coastal waters and degrading both water quality and aquatic life. Although historically the priority has been to control phosphorus, Professor Hans Paerl, from the University of North Carolina in the US, argues that nitrogen imbalance is equally damaging. He adds that a dual nutrient strategy – tackling both phosphorus and nitrogen surplus - is necessary to manage effectively this nutrient over-enrichment...

Global warming and other environmental dangers may be solved by unlikely source – space technology
News headlines are filled with discussion and debate emanating from the COP15 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen. As expected, the majority of climate change discussion surrounding the conference has focused on traditional environmental measures - regulations to restrict carbon emissions, exploration of alternative energy sources, etc. A new book Paradise Regained: The Regreening of Earth (Springer, US$27.50) argues that solutions for many of the current environmental crises on Earth can be...
