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.

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.

DNA traces on wild flowers reveal insect visitors

Researchers 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…

Growing interest in Danish biodiversity

An 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.

Human mutation rate has slowed recently

Researchers from Aarhus University and Copenhagen Zoo have discovered that the human mutation rate is significantly slower than for our closest primate relatives. The new knowledge may be important for estimates of when the common ancestor for humans and chimpanzees lived - and for conservation of large primates in the wild.
