Issue 610: The bacterium Xylella fastidiosa (Xfp) has attacked olive trees in Italy since 2013, with severe impacts. However, researchers have now used satellite data to show that bio-fertiliser is proving effective in restoring the agro-ecosystem.
Issue 610: This study across five European countries identifies key factors that influence local community support for protected areas and considers how stated support is also associated with compliance with regulations and the decision to volunteer.
A bird’s eye view of boreal forests: using satellite remote sensing to monitor biodiversity richness
Issue 610: Remote mapping shows promise as a cost-efficient way to roughly predict lichen communities in European boreal forests, finds a study of aspen trees in southern Finland.
Non-native species assessment of Spanish transitional waters (between land and sea) recommends proactive management
Issue 610: Invasive species can harm native ecosystems and impose a high cost on society. This study reports 129 non-native species at 30 sites in Spain at the fresh/saltwater interface and suggests prioritising monitoring and response efforts.
Euronews explores what role agriculture could play in a sustainable future, dispelling some common myths about sustainable farming.
Issue 609: Abandoning grassland, as well as a focus on monocultural plantation forests on the habitat, hurts biodiversity and affects its capacity to provide services which enable effective ecosystem functioning, suggests research from Estonia.
Issue 608: Field data from a Czech woodland shows how a coppicing regime affects spider diversity over time, providing evidence to suggest the effectiveness of this declining practice for enhancing woodland biodiversity.
Issue 608: Farmers could boost ecosystem services on their cropland by practicing traditional diversification methods that support arthropods, suggests a new study from Sweden.
More than 3,500 out of the 37,000 alien species that have been introduced by many human activities to regions and biomes around the world pose major global threats to nature, the economy, food security and human health.
Issue 607: Small-scale dredging to improve access to new second homes on the Finnish shoreline poses a threat to coastal biodiversity, which could undermine the pivotal roles these ecosystems play, according to a large-scale modelling study.
