nature.comSeabirds enhance coral reef productivity and functioning in the absence of invasive ratsProductivity of coral reefs is enhanced near islands with no invasive rats, as populations of seabirds, which transfer nitrogen from deeper areas of ocean to the nearshore waters via their guano, are much larger than on rat-infested islands.
nature.comControlling an organic synthesis robot with machine learning to search for new reactivityA robot instructed by a machine learning algorithm and coupled with real-time spectroscopic systems provides fast and accurate reaction outcome predictions and reactivity assessments, leading to the discovery of new reactions.1
nature.comThreat of climate change on a songbird population through its impactsIndividual and metapopulation models together project that—under an unabated climate change scenario—warming could reduce breeding productivity of a currently abundant songbird enough to pose a risk of quasi-extinction this century.1
