environment and climate research
Caterpillars can consume plastics, but it is not a magic solution. Caterpillars can consume plastics! Back in 2017, the world was getting to know this extraordinary phenomenon by global news coverage of findings of Bombelli et al.
Hold that thought: a good grip can mean the difference between life and death for lizards in a hurricane - and as a result, populations hit more frequently by hurricanes have larger toepads. A new study by a team of international researchers, including Simon Baeckens and Anthony Herrel from the University of Antwerp, is the first to demonstrate evolutionary response to hurricanes on a wide geographic scale.
A new tool maps the threats to the tropical dry forests in Peru and Ecuador. Bioscience engineers at KU Leuven combined data on possible threats to these forests - including fires and overgrazing - with data on the vulnerability of local tree species to these dangers, which the team estimated on the basis of species traits such as bark thickness and edibility of the leaves.
Researchers from KU Leuven have discovered that the presence of yeasts can alter the chemical composition and thus the nutritional value of nectar for pollinators such as bees. The study discovered that yeasts can even boost bee health and colony fitness.
