Rice production in times of global warming

Researchers at the Universities of Stanford, Tübingen, and Bayreuth predict that harvests of rice, the world's most important staple food, will decline significantly more than previously expected, and that its arsenic content will rise sharply under future climatic conditions. They present the results of their research in the journal "Nature Communication". According to Prof. Dr. Britta Planer-Friedrich, co-author and head of the Environmental Geochemistry, BayCEER / University of Bayreuth, understanding the absorption routes and conversions of arsenic in rice plants and being able to advise on breeding and agriculture is an important goal of research of the group.

Microplastics in the hyporheic zone of rivers

For the first time, researchers from the working groups Hydrology and Animal Ecology, BayCEER / University of Bayreuth, examined a stream bed - the so-called hyporheic zone - specifically for microplastic. In drill cores from the Roter Main River they found only a few larger particles, but all the more of smaller pore scale particles. In their study in Scientific Reports, they discuss possible effects on riverine food webs and drinking water supply. The research is part of the SCollaborative Recsearch Center Microplastics.

Climate change in protected areas endangers biodiversity

Researchers at the Chair of Biogeography, BayCEER / University of Bayreuth, have calculated for the first time how climate change is likely to affect the earth's conservation areas by 2070. In Nature Communications, they present their study with which they seek to give new impetus to environmental policy and the management of protected areas.
