Penguin Ecology Strongly Couples with Atmospheric/Oceanic Conditions[Oct 31, 2017]

In a study published in Earth and Planetary Science Letters, YANG Lianjiao's research group from University of Science and Technology of China of Chinese Academy of Sciences proposed a new model linking Antarctic marine ecology and atmospheric/oceanic dynamics as well as penguin paleoecology and modern ecology, which could help explain penguin paleoecology and explore how various factors affect marine animal populations in polar areas and indicate that climate change is not the only factor at work.

Hidden Potential for Farmers to Mitigate Climate Change and Increase Food Production[Nov 15, 2017]

A study conducted by scientists from Kunming Institute of Botany of the Chinese Academy of Sciences reveals that improved agricultural practices could secure a triple win for food security, ecological resilience and climate change – including removing over a billion tonnes of carbon from the atmosphere per year.
