Modéliser la nature à l’aide de superordinateurs, ça sert à quoi ? [The Conversation]

Contrairement à ce que l’on croit souvent, la recherche en écologie ne consiste pas seulement à observer la nature. Et certains chercheurs étudient des espèces et des écosystèmes virtuels qu’ils ont eux-mêmes créés. C’est ce qu’on appelle « faire de la modélisation ».

Visualising multiple stressors on European river catchments: the MARS Scenario Analysis Tool [The Freshwater Blog]

Over the last four years, the MARS project has been investigating the interactions and impacts of multiple stressors on Europe’s aquatic ecosystems. This is a topic at the cutting edge of freshwater science research, and MARS scientists have sought to understand how the multiple pressures humans place on the environment – nutrient pollution, habitat alteration, climate change, water abstraction, and many more – act together to cause stress on the continent’s rivers and lakes. As a result, this work is important for environmental managers and policy makers seeking effective options to mitigate multiple stresses, and conserve or restore Europe’s freshwaters.

Promiscuity may have accelerated animal domestication [Phys]

Domestication of wild animals may have accelerated as promiscuity increased among the high density populations drawn to life near humans, according to a new paper by University of Liverpool researchers.
