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.

Hvordan fungerer bakterier med indlagte elektriske ledninger?

2017.04.19Seks år efter den opsigtsvækkende opdagelse af kabelbakterier bevilger Danmarks Grundforskningsfond nu op til 56 mio. kr. til Center for Elektromikrobiologi på Aarhus Universitet.

Når mørket fortæller hele historien

2017.04.07Indenfor biologien er et nyt koncept ved at gøre sit indtog: ”Dark Diversity” eller ’mørk mangfoldighed’. Konceptet hjælper forskerne med at få øje på de arter, der ’er blevet væk’ og med et nyt resultat fra Danmark lover det godt for fremtidens muligheder for at få hele billedet af naturens ve og vel.

Why do guillemot chicks leap from the nest before they can fly?

2017.03.28It looks like a spooky suicide when small, fluffy guillemot chicks leap from the cliffs and fall several hundred metres towards the sea – long before they are fully fledged. But researchers have now discovered that there is good reason behind the madness.

Geese begin to threaten nature, agriculture and air traffic

2017.03.27European goose populations have grown so much in the last 40 years that they have gone from being relatively threatened to numbers that themselves present a threat to agriculture, biodiversity and air safety.

Gæs truer landbrug, flytrafik og natur

2017.03.21Der er nu så mange gæs, at dyrene kommer i konflikt med både landbrug og flysikkerhed. Der er indledt et internationalt samarbejde for at finde fælles løsninger.

40 mio. kroner til Biodiversity Dynamics in a Changing World

2017.03.21To topforskere indenfor biologi og fysik fra Aarhus Universitet er blandt modtagerne under et nyt bevillingsprogram fra VILLUM FONDEN. Tanken bag det nye bevillingsprogram, 'VILLUM Investigator', er at lade fremragende forskere på danske forskningsinstitutioner undersøge de emner, de brænder allermest for.

New research project will reveal antimicrobial secrets of social spiders

2017.03.17The Novo Nordisk Foundation’s Interdisciplinary Synergy Programme has granted DKK 14.7 million to three professors at Science and Technology and a German colleague to carry out research into social spiders as a source of new antimicrobial substances.

Regnskoven i Amazonas er formet af mennesker

2017.03.03Myten om at regnskoven er noget af det mest uberørte natur, vi finder i verden, aflives nu af et internationalt team af forskere med deltagelse fra Aarhus Universitet. Forskernes resultater, som netop er offentliggjort i Science, viser, at den oprindelige befolkning påvirkede regnskoven gennem udnyttelse og dyrkning af bestemte træarter længe før Columbus kom til Amerika, og det har betydning for biodiversiteten i dag.
