Can animals sufficiently adapt to climate change?
A new study shows that in multiple animal species climate change causes changes in the life cycle, e.g. the timing of the egg hatching, or adaptations in their morphology, e.g. body size.

New model of storm surge mitigation by coastal wetlands in 11 major river deltas
A study by Rebecca Van Coppenolle shows that, among others, the Niger and Mississippi delta benefit strongly from 'nature-based' protection of land and people.
Cities alter body size of animal communities
A large and international team of ecologists reports in the renowned journal Nature that urbanization is driving body-size shifts in animal communities.
Chinese mitten crabs
