Dryland Cropping Systems Research Addresses Future Drought and Hunger Issues

The projected world population by 2056 is 10 billion. If researchers succeed in improving the yield potential of 40 percent of global land area under arid and semi-arid conditions, it will lead to a significant contribution to future food security.

Drill Holes in Fossil Shells Point to Bigger Predators Picking on Small Prey

The drill holes left in fossil shells by hunters such as snails and slugs show marine predators have grown steadily bigger and more powerful over time but stuck to picking off small prey, rather than using their added heft to pursue larger quarry, new research shows.

Water Management Interventions Push Scarcity Downstream

Human interventions to harness water resources, such as reservoirs, dams, and irrigation measures, have increased water availability for much of the global population, but at the same time, swept water scarcity problems downstream.

Widespread Snowmelt in West Antarctica During Unusually Warm Summer

Melt_Jan2016_no_inset_colorbar_below.png

An area of West Antarctica more than twice the size of California partially melted in 2016 when warm winds forced by an especially strong El Niño blew over the continent, an international group of researchers has determined.

12th Annual Symposium of the Penn Center of Excellence in Environmental Toxicology

Several critical periods over a human life span – including before birth -- determine when individuals are the most susceptible to environmental toxicants. Researchers will gather at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania this Monday to discuss these “Windows of Susceptibility."
