Media release: Invasive insects cost the world billions per year

Ecologists have estimated that invasive (non-native) insects cost humanity tens of billions of dollars a year – and are likely to increase under climate change and growing international trade. Researchers from the University of Adelaide in Australia and CNRS and Paris-Sud University in France have compiled the first comprehensive and robust database of the global […]

Media Release: Population policy to impact emissions targets

Current immigration rates into Australia, and associated projected population growth, will make greenhouse gas emissions targets even more difficult to achieve in the future, a University of Adelaide-led study has found. Published in the journal Asia and the Pacific Policy Forum, Professor Corey Bradshaw (University of Adelaide) in collaboration with Professor Barry Brook (University of […]

Podcast: Ganging up on fossils

Fossil finds are a vital source of evidence, not just for the origin of species, but for establishing environmental and climate history as well. A new project at the University of Adelaide, lead by Professor Corey Bradshaw, brought together talented researchers from many disciplines to develop new approaches to fossil finding. One of whom, Dr […]

Media Release: New models predicting where to find fossils

An international team of scientists have developed a way to help locate fossils of long-extinct animals. Using the estimated ages and spatial distribution of Australian megafauna fossils, the team from University of Adelaide in Australia and Kiel University in Germany built a series of mathematical models to determine the areas in the country most likely […]

Podcast: Species diversity a key to infectious disease resistance

Professor Corey Bradshaw has had a unique opportunity to look at species diversity in a natural environment, high on the Tibetan plateau. Corey and his team investigated the connection between biodiversity and infectious diseases, uncovering important data not only to support biodiversity for better agricultural outcomes, but also in relation to human health. He spoke to Radio […]

Media Release: Biodiversity brings disease resistance: novel study

A novel study of a Tibetan alpine meadow has shown a clear link between higher biodiversity and greater infectious disease resistance. The researchers say it provides further strong evidence that maintaining biodiversity among the world’s species should be a high priority. Published in the journal Ecology, Australian and Chinese researchers from the University of Adelaide […]

The 70’s are over. Leading environmental scientists worldwide support Nuclear energy

The 70’s are over. Professors Corey Bradshaw and Barry Brook’s latest research shows clearly that it is time for objective comparison of potential energy sources including nuclear, if we are to minimise net environmental damage. More than 60 leading environmental scientists from 14 countries around the world agree, and have signed an open letter in support […]
