  • Endemic brown algae bladderwrack - how are they faring? 2018-06-19 The brown algae bladderwracks have gone from marine conditions into the brackish, lower salinity, environments in the Baltic Sea and have been forced to adapt to it. Watch Ellen talking about her research on these organisms in Baltic Sea
  • Moss capable of removing arsenic from drinking water discovered 2018-06-05 A moss capable of removing arsenic from contaminated water has been discovered by researchers from Stockholm University. And it happens quickly – in just one hour, the arsenic level is so low that the water is no longer harmful for people to drink.
  • No one wants to snorkel in sea weed except for Maria Eggertsen 2018-05-22 The ocean and has always fascinated Maria Eggertsen since we know so little about it - although it’s such a large part of planet. This is why she now is a marine biologist doing research on sea weed – and the latest field trip was to Ningaloo, a long barrier reef in Australia. Watch the video and read the article here.
  • Migratory birds, insects and plants adapt differently to climate change 2018-04-24 A warmer climate has caused plants flowering and migratory birds arriving earlier in the year than before. Now a global study also shows that changes in the life cycles between plants and animals that depend on each other is also moving faster.
  • Climate change mitigation project threatens local ecosystem resilience in Ethiopia 2018-04-16 To increase forest cover in the Global South in order to mitigate climate change does not always have positive effects. It can also threaten biodiversity and the survival of unique alpine plants.
  • Citizen science: Which bird wants to eat which berries? 2018-04-13 Some trees are rewarding birds for their service of seed dispersal by providing fruits. Last August, PhD student Matilda Arnell and colleagues, released an app where everyone can report an observation: which bird species prefers which tree berries. General public reports will give a better picture of the whole berry season in Sweden during autumn.
  • Rocket science: Exploring algal blooms from space 2018-04-06 The satellite Sentinel-3 will soon be launched into Space by the European Space Agency (ESA) to collect data about algal blooms and water quality. Susanne Kratzer is DEEP’s lead scientists improving the satellite’s methods.
  • Professors with a drive to explore and problem solve 2017-12-22 Meet three women in science and find out how they succeeded to obtain the ultimate title in science: professor.
