Ants fight plant diseases

2019.10.21New research from Aarhus University shows that ants inhibit at least 14 different plant diseases. The small insects secrete antibiotics from glands in the body. On their legs and body, they also host colonies of bacteria that secrete antibiotics. It is probably these substances that inhibit a number of different diseases and researchers now hope to find biological pesticides that may conquer resistant plant diseases.

The Particle Project 2017-2018

2019.03.20Particle emissions across rural, urban and suburban sites in Denmark have been measured and the results gathered in a new Particle Project report by scientists from DCE – Danish Centre for Environment and Energy.

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.

Environmental monitoring using eDNA has the potential to be faster, easier and more accurate than currently existing and more traditional monitoring techniques. (Photo: Colourbox)

eDNA - The new environmental monitoring technique

2019.03.14Environmental DNA, also known as eDNA, is a new technique being used for environmental monitoring. It is to replace the existing, more traditional monitoring techniques as it is both faster, easier and more accurate than its predecessors according to a report from DCE - Danish Centre for Environment and Energy.

An improvement in air quality has resulted in about 400 fewer premature deaths in 2017 compared to 2016. This decrease is amongst other reasons due to a general reduction in Danish emissions. (Photo: Colourbox)

Danish air quality continues to improve

2019.03.14A new report shows a continued improvement of the air quality in Danish cities. An estimated 400 fewer people died premature deaths related to air pollution in 2017 compared to the previous year according to a study done by scientists from DCE – Danish Centre for Environment and Energy.

Danish tap water is microplast free

2019.02.27“No significant concentrations of microplastic” in Danish tap water a new report concludes. The report is the result of a study done by scientists from DCE – Danish Centre for Environment and Energy.

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.
