For the first time, scientists are putting extinct mammals on the map

2018.08.09Researchers from Aarhus University and University of Gothenburg have produced the most comprehensive family tree and atlas of mammals to date, connecting all living and recently extinct mammal species – nearly 6,000 in total – and overturning many previous ideas about global patterns of biodiversity.

Oil rigs may end their days as valuable artificial reefs

2018.07.09A large group of international researchers have just published a scientific article in which they encourage environmental authorities across the globe to rethink the idea of removing oil rigs, wind turbines and other installations in the sea when they are worn out.

British Water Industry Ward to Bioscience-project

2018.07.02Senior researcher Carlos A. Arias and his international partners of wastewater-project INCOVER have been rewarded a British 2018 Water Industry Award.

Is the Greenland sled dog becoming extinct?

2018.06.08The Greenland sled dog is in danger of becoming extinct. The drastic decline in the population is caused by a decline in the need for hunters to use sled dogs, changes in climate and infectious diseases, and could lead to the extinction of this unique breed, which would substantially affect how the Greenland Inuit use their environment, and in turn could affect health and well-being. Read professor Christian Sonnes Letter in Science here: http://science.sciencemag.org/content/360/6393/1080.1.full

Voltage loss in cable bacteria

2018.05.08An international research group has shed new light on cable bacteria. Using laser light, researchers have followed electrons as they travel through the current-conducting bacteria, and on the basis of the electrical potential in the bacteria, they have calculated that the bacteria because of voltage loss cannot function efficiently at depths exceeding 3 cm into the sediment.

International student: Bioscience is world-class in marine bioacoustics

2018.05.03Every year hundreds of international students travel to Aarhus University to study. One of them is Ellen Rose Jacobs from California, USA. She is studying her Master’s degree in Biology at the Department of Bioscience because she wanted to work with and learn from researchers who are at the forefront of their fields.

ST to consolidate Aarhus activities on campus and at Katrinebjerg

2018.05.03The framework for Aarhus University's physical development in the years ahead was presented at a mass meeting on 2 May 2018. For ST, this means that, after a long wait, the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics will be consolidated in University City; it means moving from Kalø and Silkeborg and gathering life-science activities in the University Park; and it means that engineers will all be together at Katrinebjerg and in the Science Park.

Increase of plant species on mountain tops is accelerating with global warming

2018.04.05Over the past 10 years, the number of plant species on European mountain tops has increased by five-times more than during the period 1957-66. Data on 302 European peaks covering 145 years shows that the acceleration in the number of mountain-top species is unequivocally linked to global warming.

Oil-eating microbes are challenged in the Arctic

2018.03.09Bacteria play a major role in cleaning up oil spills and mitigating its environmental impacts. In a review published in ‘Science of the Total Environment’, researchers from Aarhus University, Denmark, examine the major limiting factors for microbial degradation in Arctic environments.
