InnoExplorer Grant to Bioscience and Enginering

2019.09.06Three scientists at AU have joined forces and pitched a project idea in front of a panel for the InnoExplorer program by Innovation Fund Denmark.

Integrated Assessment of Atlantic Marine Ecosystems in Space and Time

2019.09.04iAtlantic will take an interdisciplinary scientific approach to unifying stakeholder efforts to better inform sustainable management and enhance human and observational capacity throughout the Atlantic.

The origins of cable bacteria

2019.08.30An international team lead by professor Andreas Schramm from the Center for Electromicrobiology has recently published a paper in PNAS about the origins of cable bacteria.

Methane vanishing on Mars: Aarhus researchers propose new mechanism as an explanation.

2019.07.03The processes behind the release and consumption of methane on Mars have been discussed since methane was measured for the first time for approx. 15 years ago. Now, an interdisciplinary research group from Aarhus University has proposed a previously overlooked physical-chemical process that can explain methane's consumption.

How to make wild and autonomous nature

2019.05.02An international team of researchers have worked to clarify what rewilding actually is, and how best to design and implement rewilding as a practical tool to reverse the global losses of biodiversity.

Electrical cable bacteria were discovered in Aarhus Bay by researchers from Aarhus University, who have described five species of these bacteria so far: three from Aarhus Bay and two from Giber stream. The first species was naturally given the name Electrothrix aarhusiensis. This is a cross section of a cable bacterium with its characteristic ridges containing electrical wires. Photo: Chr.

Electric bacteria in the spotlight

2019.03.18Several years ago, researchers from Aarhus discovered a curious form of electric life on the seafloor. Since then it has become increasingly clear that a significant part of the bacterial world is electrified. Leading researchers from around the world will set this life form in focus at the first-ever electromicrobiology conference, held on March 21 and 22 in Aarhus, Denmark.

Being surrounded by green space in childhood may improve mental health of adults

2019.02.26Children who grow up with greener surroundings have up to 55% less risk of developing various mental disorders later in life. This is shown by a new study from Aarhus University, emphasizing the need for designing green and healthy cities for the future.

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.
