University of Arizona researchers studied recent extinctions from climate change to estimate the loss of plant and animal species by 2070. Their results suggest that as many as one in three species could face extinction unless warming is reduced.
Protecting large animals such as elephants and whales, and large plants like the sequoias, has a disproportionate positive impact on the health of the planet and resilience to climate change.
A study tracing acoustic communication across the tree of life of land-living vertebrates reveals that the ability to vocalize goes back hundreds of millions of years, is associated with a nocturnal lifestyle and has remained stable.
The first strain of influenza virus we encounter during childhood sets the course of how our immune system responds to exposures later in life.
A new theory describes what all animals have in common and allows predictions for organisms that might not be well understood by science.
New University of Arizona-led science is using air-based maps of plant chemistry to improve carbon cycling models in hyperdiverse tropical forests.
New University of Arizona research investigates what proportion of the world’s land plants are exceedingly rare, where they’re found and how location might put them at risk of human development and a changing climate.
In the largest plant genome project to date, an international consortium of researchers generated gene sequences from more than 1,100 species, providing a framework for 1 billion years of green plant evolution.
Study shows how topography mediates climate impacts on saguaros.
