Novel method uses drones to weigh whales

AIAS fellow Fredrik Christiansen and collaborators have devised a way to accurately estimate the weight of free-living whales by using only aerial images taken by drones. The method is presented in the British Ecological Journal Methods in Ecology and Evolution.

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

The 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.

A reduction in female polar bear numbers can take decades to correct because of the slow reproduction of this species.

How to make wild and autonomous nature

An 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. Bortolini & K. Thomsen.

Electric bacteria in the spotlight

Several 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…

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

Children 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.
