DNA traces on wild flowers reveal insect visitors

2019.02.08Researchers from Aarhus University have discovered that insects leave tiny DNA traces on the flowers they visit. This newly developed eDNA method holds a vast potential for documenting unknown insect-plant interactions, keeping track of endangered pollinators, such as wild bees and butterflies, as well as in the management of unwanted pest species.

Growing interest in Danish biodiversity

2019.02.01An impressive more than 400 people turned up to the fifth Biodiversity Symposium, held at Aarhus University on 22 January. Researchers, managers, consultants and policy-makers gathered to take stock of biodiversity in the Danish countryside. The good attendance bears witness to a large and increasing interest in the topic.

Funding for two new ’underground’ programmes at Bioscience

2018.03.07Geomicrobiologists from Department of Bioscience have received funding for two new research programmes from Danish Hydrocarbon Research Centre. Read more about the projects here.

Maize fields entice geese to winter in Denmark

2018.03.05More and more geese remain in Denmark for the winter. They forage in the growing number of maize fields all over the country. Researchers warn that, in the long term, the many geese may cause problems for agriculture.

Blue mussels have an important role in coastal ecosystems and are a key indicator for climate change, which is why scientists are studying where and how they survive along the Greenland coast today.

A New Network for Former Students and Employees Sees the Light of Day at Bioscience

2018.02.12With a new academic alumni network, the Department of Bioscience wants to create a lifelong relationship with its former biology students. The network gives the alumni a unique opportunity to keep in contact with their academic and study environment, participate in academic events and expand their professional networks.

Sea ice algae bloom in the dark

2018.02.07Researchers from Aarhus University have measured a new world record: Small ice algae on the underside of the Arctic sea ice live and grow at a light level corresponding to only 0.02% of the light at the surface of the ice. Algae are the primary component of the Arctic food web and produce food far earlier in the year than previously thought.

Shallow lakes are potential methane factories

2018.01.30Combined nutrients and warming massively increase methane emissions from lakes.

Poul Due Jensen Foundation pumps DKK 40 million into water technology research at Aarhus University

2018.01.23With four donations totalling more than DKK 40 million, Aarhus University's new Centre for Water Technology (WATEC) is off to a flying start and headed for a place among the international elite within the field of research into sustainable water cycles. This is largest sum ever donated to water research by the Poul Due Jensen Foundation.

Heat loss from the Earth triggers ice sheet slide towards the sea

2018.01.23In North-East Greenland, researchers have measured the loss of heat that comes up from the interior of the Earth. This enormous area is a geothermal “hot spot” that melts the ice sheet from below and triggers the sliding of glaciers towards the sea.
