Eliteforsk travel grants are awarded to very talented PhD students, allowing them travel abroad and improve their skills in the best research environments in the world.
Overlap of food and the Danish list of threatened species (red list) can help to guide action plans and management of bees in nature areas in Denmark, new research from leading European bee researchers from Aarhus University, among others, shows.
In relation to a new AIAS fellowship called ”The AIAS Associate programme” 23 researchers from Aarhus University will be welcomed from April 1.
One of them is Professor Dorte Krause Jensen from Marine Ecology.
Every year, a new growth layer is added to the narwhal’s spiralled tusk. The individual layers act as an archive of data that reveals what and where the animal has eaten, providing a glimpse of how the ice and environmental conditions have changed over its long life span (up to 50 years).
Climate change is more pronounced in the Arctic than anywhere else on the planet, raising concerns about the ability of wildlife to cope with the new conditions. A new study shows that rare insects are declining, suggesting that climatic changes may favour common species.
Scientists are combining artificial intelligence and advanced computer technology with biological know how to identify insects with supernatural speed. This opens up new possibilities for describing unknown species and for tracking the life of insects across Space and time.
The European Commission has awarded a Horizon 2020 grant of €6.9 million to a consortium led by the University of Vic (Spain) to develop methods for maximising the use of ponds in climate change adaptation and mitigation.
New study uses museum collections and citizen-science observations to document how climate change affects the phenology of Danish hoverflies.

Areas of the planet home to one-third of humans will become as hot as the hottest parts of the Sahara within 50 years, unless greenhouse gas emissions fall, according to research by an international team of scientists with participation from Aarhus University published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences this week. The rapid heating would mean that 3.5 billion people would live outside the climate ‘niche’ in which humans have thrived for 6,000 years.
