Mammals cannot evolve fast enough to escape current extinction crisis

2018.10.17We humans are exterminating animal and plant species so quickly that nature's built-in defence mechanism, evolution, cannot keep up. An Aarhus-led research team calculated that if current conservation efforts are not improved, so many mammal species will become extinct during the next five decades that nature will need 3-5 million years to recover.

Associate Professor Hans Røy gave a presentation about his collaboration with Dong Energy Oil & Gas.
Both researchers and students participated in the networking and career day.
Researchers and representatives from the business community queued up to give a one-minute madness-presentation to the other participants.
After some inspiring presentations, the participants were able to network at the stands or over a bite of tapas.

Great interest in new networking and career day

2018.10.09Around 200 students, researchers and representatives from the business community met on Friday 28 September on the Department of Bioscience networking and career day, BIO Match. See the photos from the day here.

Networking day to increase dialogue and cooperation between businesses and AU biologists

2018.09.19The Department of Bioscience is heating up collaboration between businesses, research and students on the networking and career day ‘BIO Match’, Friday 28 September at Aarhus University.

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.

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.
