Bellwethers of change: population modelling of North Pacific humpback whales from 2002 through 2021 reveals shift from recovery to climate response | Royal Society Open Science

  2024-2-28 in Royal Society Publishing

For the 40 years after the end of commercial whaling in 1976, humpback whale populations in the North Pacific Ocean exhibited a prolonged period of recovery. Using mark–recapture methods on the largest individual photo-identification dataset ever ...

Marine cloud brightening | Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences

  2023-08-05 (or before) in Royal Society Publishing

The idea behind the marine cloud-brightening (MCB) geoengineering technique is that seeding marine stratocumulus clouds with copious quantities of roughly monodisperse sub-micrometre sea water particles might significantly enhance the cloud droplet number ...

Ongoing over-exploitation and delayed responses to environmental change highlight the urgency for action to promote vertebrate recoveries by 2030 | Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences

  2023-04-19 (or before) in Royal Society Publishing

To safeguard nature, we must understand the drivers of biodiversity loss. Time-delayed biodiversity responses to environmental changes (ecological lags) are often absent from models of biodiversity change, despite their well-documented existence. We ...


Matches and mismatches between the global distribution of major food crops and climate suitability | Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences

  2022-11-01 (or before) in Royal Society Publishing

Over the course of history, humans have moved crops from their regions of origin to new locations across the world. The social, cultural and economic drivers of these movements have generated differences not only between current distributions of crops and ...


Atmospheric methane removal: a research agenda | Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences

  2022-09-06 (or before) in Royal Society Publishing

Atmospheric methane removal (e.g. in situ methane oxidation to carbon dioxide) may be needed to offset continued methane release and limit the global warming contribution of this potent greenhouse gas. Because mitigating most anthropogenic emissions of ...

Pesticide and resource stressors additively impair wild bee reproduction | Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences

  2021-11-22 (or before) in Royal Society Publishing

Bees and other beneficial insects experience multiple stressors within agricultural landscapes that act together to impact their health and diminish their ability to deliver the ecosystem services on which human food supplies depend. Disentangling the ...

Climate sensitivity, sea level and atmospheric carbon dioxide | Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences

  2021-11-12 (or before) in Royal Society Publishing

Cenozoic temperature, sea level and CO2 covariations provide insights into climate sensitivity to external forcings and sea-level sensitivity to climate change. Climate sensitivity depends on the initial climate state, but potentially can be accurately ...
