Species richness improves grassland recovery after drought, but only in low-productive environments
Ivan Nijs, Sigi Berwaers and Hans De Boeck (UAntwerpen) participated in the first multisite international experiment to uncover how biodiversity affects resistance and recovery of grassland ecosystems after drought.
Inside the guts of the city: urbanization reduces gut microbiota diversity in house sparrows
The effects of urbanisation extend as far as the microbiome of house sparrows, a new study shows. This has potentially far-reaching implications for the fitness of the birds.

Melting glaciers strongly impact productivity in Greenland fjords
Meltwater runoff from the Greenland Ice Sheet has doubled in the last two decades as a result of climate warming. New data suggest indicate this drastically alters the productivity in the coastal zone around Greenland.
Belgian scientists study ebola outbreak in Congo
In North-Congo, Belgian scientists have studied the cause of a local ebola outbreak. This outbreak took four lives in May.
Are Chinese mitten crabs feeding on native vegetation?
Jonas Schoelynck and his colleagues provide experimental evidence that Chinese mitten crabs are a potential threat to native aquatic vegetation.
