Research News: Warming: Peatlands will store more carbon initially, but that will change

Research News: See Beauty Through The Eyes Of A Master Cartographer

An international team of researchers has mapped Nemo's genome, providing the research community with an invaluable resource to decode the response of fish to environmental changes, including climate change.

In a breakthrough study led by the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies (Coral CoE), researchers used high-tech sequencing tools to create one of the most complete genetic maps for the orange clownfish, a common reef inhabitant and star of the Disney movie, Finding Nemo.

Peatlands are extremely effective at storing carbon, but an international study featuring a University of Queensland researcher has found climate change could stop that.

The group investigated how peatlands -- swamps and bogs with organic rich soils -- have responded to climate variability between 850 BCE and 1850 CE.

These are the peatlands of Moon Point on Queensland's Fraser Island.

If you were to drop Dave Imus anywhere in the United States, he could likely point out something unique in the landscape around him.

This winding road through flat farmland, 30 miles outside of Eugene, Oregon, is no different.

“This spot has the unique characteristic in that you can see all five of Oregon’s highest snow peaks in the Cascade Range,” Imus said pointing to the mountain range obscured by clouds and distance. “One thing I’ve learned is that all landforms, regardless of how subtle they are, have their own beauty and character.”
