Life on Earth is in the early stages of the worst mass extinction since the end of the Cretaceous. Many species are likely go extinct before they are even discovered and named by biologists.
Keith Leggett radio-collars enormous elephants in the Namibian desert to find out where they range and roam — and gets help from a BBC film crew.
An interview with Earthwatch-supported scientist Ken Balcomb reveals the physical damage sustained by whales that died in the Bahamas following Navy sonar tests.
In his recently published paper, biochemistry professor James Crabbe (University of Bedfordshire) explores how rates of sea surface temperature (SST) change influence the growth of coral colonies, with his research focusing on the growth of the branching coral Acropora palmata.
Can ecosystem research help us prepare for future climate change?
The impacts of global warming will have enormous consequences for the Earth's ecosystems, yet these impacts are still only poorly understood.
We asked four Earthwatch-supported scientists how their research can help us not only predict the impacts of climate change, but help mitigate those impacts and adapt ecosystems to new climate regimes.
