In the Mojave and Sonoran deserts, feral donkeys and horses dig wells that are sometimes as deep as two meters. These wells, though being the product of invasive species, actually benefit the ecosystem greatly.

Professor of biology Signe Normand from Aarhus University is one of the five recipients of the Elite Research Prize for 2021. There are also Elite Research travel grants for two PhD students from the Department of Computer Science and Department of Bioscience. The awards will be presented at an event at the Ministry of Higher Education and Science on 10 August.
Denmark's most influential climate scientist is found at the Department of Biology. "Reuters' Hot List" is listing the most cited climate scientists in the world, and professor Jens-Christian Svenning takes first place in Denmark and is ranked 101 in the world.
Aarhus University wants to increase biodiversity in several of the university's green areas. The areas will increase species variation, and can be used in connection with teaching and as a meeting point for social activities.
The bats' echolocation is more advanced than previously thought. Bats muffle their screams almost to a whisper when hunting, so echoes from trees and buildings do not drown out echoes from the prey.
The Arctic region is very sensitive to climate change and the ongoing changes in the Arctic are a crucial factor affecting the global climate. Therefore, it is important to understand what determines the Arctic climatic processes. With a grant from the Villum Foundation, the researchers behind the ICARUS project aim to examine how specific microorganisms can affect formation of ice in clouds.
The Ministry of Higher Education and Science has just granted almost DKK 37 million to a targeted effort to unravel the importance of the ongoing climate change in the Arctic environment, how quickly the changes take place and how they affect the rest of the planet. The project brings all the Arctic stakeholders of the Danish Realm together in one network.
As the sea ice shrinks in the Arctic, the plankton community that produces food for the entire marine food chain is changing. New research shows that a potentially toxic species of plankton algae that lives both by doing photosynthesis and absorbing food may become an important player in the Arctic Ocean as the future sea ice becomes thinner and thinner.
New collaboration between Aarhus Harbor and the Department of Biology focus on the environmental sustainability and biodiversity in the marine waters…
