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..
Professor Menno Schilthuizen, author of 'Darwin in the city', and Naturalis researcher Niels Kerstes cooperated with Vincent Kalkman and Thijmen Breeschoten on research into how urban temperatures have impacted the evolution of..
Climate change affects our health. The consequences that climate change can have on our health, for instance heat stress, allergies, diseases, air quality and UV-radiation, have hitherto never been documented this extensively: as..
Wageningen University recently published an alarming report on the threatened natural resources on Bonaire, Saba and St. Eustatius. The Dutch Caribbean Nature Alliance (DCNA), together with local park organizations, urge the local..
