A study, published in the international journal Nature Plants, by young researchers from the Water Research Institute of the National Research Council in Verbania (CNR-Irsa), the University of Turin, the Federico II University in Naples, the Museum of Natural...
Innovative magnetic nanoparticles of iron oxide, coated with a biocompatible polymeric coating, capable of removing heavy metal ions from water: the development of materials science plays a crucial role in sustainable development and ecological transition.Thanks to the design and...
Thanks to new data made available by the latest satellite campaigns, it is now possible to observe the changes in snow and vegetation cover associated with climate change and how they have modified the amount of solar radiation reflected...
Repaire the Earth with the help of 'beneficial' microbes, able to improve yield and quality of crops, but also to counteract the impoverishment of soils, reclaim contaminated land and reduce the use of water, fertilizers and pesticides. On the...
Citizen science projects can be an effective response to current trends: in fact, on the one hand, the world of scientific research has opened up more to issues relating to the environment and citizenship, but it finds several difficulties,...
The profile of a Forestry graduate originated approximately three centuries ago when, in 1713, Hanns Carl von Carlowitz, a forestry accountant, published "Silvicoltura Economica (Economic Silviculture)", in which he revealed the necessity to recognize the above-mentioned figure, by stating...
From waste to resource, from problem to opportunity. The volcanic ashes of Etna, which have fallen abundantly especially on the foothills in recent weeks as a result of the volcano's frequent paroxysms, could be used for various applications in...
Global warming will change the lengths of the four seasons, a new study suggests, potentially making six-month-long summers the norm by the year 2100. In contrast, winters could last less than two months a year, while spring and autumn similarly...
Understanding the reasons for the sharp increase in temperatures in the Arctic compared to the rest of the planet, the so-called "Arctic amplification", investigating its complex mechanisms. This is the goal of the ECAPAC and SENTINEL projects, the first...
A few days ago, five hundred scientists, including many Italians, sent a letter to five world-famous political leaders (the president of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen; the president of the European Council, Charles Michael; the president of...
