Legumes can offer a solution for sustainable agriculture

,
Crucial is the ability of legumes to fix nitrogen, an essential element for ensuring soil productivity. In Cambridge, a team of researchers is studying this dynamic to understand how to reduce the use of chemical fertilizers

Deforestation fosters mercury emissions into the atmosphere

,
Forests perform an essential ecosystem service by storing mercury and preventing its spread into waterways. That's why deforestation poses a threat in terms of pollution, a MIT study finds

Analysis of a river in Congo reveals carbon dynamics

,
As a tributary of the Congo River, the Ruki provides one-fifth of the dissolved carbon in the region's main waterway. A figure that suggests a lower sequestration capacity by the local forest, says a research
