Coralita is an invasive plant species, that rapidly spreads across St. Eustatius. A recently published report highlighted the ability to use satellite imagery to systematically map Coralita’s distribution over the island. The..
Will there ever be a Friesian Elfstedenstocht, or can we forget this? According to international research in Nature Geoscience, the chance is getting smaller. Globally, lakes are warming and ice days will decrease. “This warming..
A new vegetation map produced by CARMABI and Wageningen University & Research shows a 25 percent decrease in overall vegetation cover of the Dutch side of St. Maarten since 1956. Results show that this loss can be attributed to..
University of Applied Sciences Van Hall Larenstein and Wageningen University and Research recently conducted a comparative study of artificial reefs within the Caribbean. This study provides new insights into the impacts of these..
Seagrasses are marine flowering plants that can reproduce both sexually (flowering) and asexually (clones). Sexual reproduction increases genetic diversity, resilience and dispersal success of seagrasses. A recent study discovered..
The capacity of the Amazon rainforest to take up CO₂ from the atmosphere is declining. Repeated measurements of carbon dioxide (CO₂) and carbon monoxide (CO) show that the eastern part releases more CO₂ than it absorbs, while the..
Climate change affects biodiversity globally, by forcing species to shift their distribution to track the warming environment. In an article published today in the journal Ecology Letters, an international team of scientists shows..
Results from a 2020 study highlight the interconnectivity between watershed areas and neighboring coral reefs on the island of Bonaire. This study provided evidence that coral reefs near areas with high erosion risk were more..
Agriculture and biodiversity are currently both in the spotlights, but mostly as opposites. This must change, but how? A new EU project will investigate how agriculture and biodiversity can best go hand in hand and what this..
Diadema sea-urchins play a vital role in maintaining a balanced coral reef ecosystem by grazing away algae and creating bare substrate for coral recruitment. The RAAK PRO Diadema project aims to develop interventions to improve..
