PAPER: Tropical and temperate species are living well together under climate change

Researchers at the University of Adelaide have found tropical and temperate coral reef fish can co-exist. As our climate changes, many terrestrial and marine species are forced to extend their ranges poleward, to stay within the bounds of their thermal tolerances. However, when such species enter higher latitude ecosystems, they engage in innovative interactions with local […]

Guaranteeing faster speeds for generating maps of climate change through time

In January, the University of Adelaide’s, Environment Institute launched PaleoView on Google Cloud. Guest post by Julia Aaron Pilowsky PaleoView provides users with the capability to generate climatic conditions over the past 21,000 years in a matter of minutes to hours, depending on the region and time period of interest. PaleoView is a freeware developed by […]

VIDEO: Research Tuesdays – Firing Debate

This has been a bushfire season without precedent. As the world looked on horrified, our country burned. More than 11 million hectares have been reduced to ash, over 30 lives lost, thousands of properties destroyed, and wildlife decimated. Now, as the smoke finally clears, the natural question is: what can, and should, we do differently […]

MEDIA RELEASE: Past climate safe havens now most vulnerable

The Environment Institute’s climate research featured in Nature. The profound threat of future climate change to biodiversity demands that scientists seek ever more effective ways to identify the most vulnerable species, communities, and ecosystems. In a new study, published in Nature Climate Change, an international team of scientists has shown that the most biodiverse regions […]

The search for climate change and bushfire solutions with Dr Douglas Bardsley

As the climate changes, weather conditions are being generated that are more conducive for bushfires. As a result of climate change, we are seeing a range of severe fires in places that have not experienced such natural disasters before; fires at different times of year to what has been the historical norm in other places; […]

Australia’s history of fire, until the arrival of humans 50,000 years ago

As fires continue to rage on the east coast of Australia, Professor Bob Hill explores the history of fire prior to the arrival of humans. The Earth has a long history of fire burning vegetation, mostly at times in the past when atmospheric oxygen was considerably higher than it is now and fire could burn more […]
