New DNA tool 'changes everything in marine science'
Earth system science professor talks climate change
New Report on coral reef resilience
Volcanic carbon dioxide vents off the coast of Italy are rapidly acidifying nearby waters. This natural laboratory provides a crystal ball-view into potential future marine biodiversity impacts around the world.
Chris Field, Perry L. McCarty Director of the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment and the Melvin and Joan Lane Professor for Interdisciplinary Environmental Studies at Stanford University, discussed his hopes for a solution to climate change last Wednesday as part of the seminar series Hard Earth: Tough Talks About Sustainability’s Dilemmas.
Stanford professor Stephen Palumbi contributed to a two-phase study by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine evaluating the risks and benefits of implementing novel ecological, genetic and environmental interventions that could enhance the recovery and persistence of coral reefs.
