Climate warming and lake browning – when dissolved organic matter turns the water tea-brown – are making the bottom of most lakes in the Adirondacks unlivable for cold water species such as trout, salmon and whitefish during the summer.
In a paper co-authored by Mario Herrero, professor and director of the Food Systems & Global Change program, the first science-based monitoring of global agriculture and food systems is being used to provide equitable access to healthy diets through sustainable food systems.
A new study, which brought together Cornell researchers, Cambodian fishers and Cambodian researchers, had study participants take photos that researchers then use to facilitate interviews and group discussions during which the subjects share their life experiences and perspectives.
Cornell researchers and colleagues have for the first time described the near-complete genome of a rare bacterium so large it’s visible to the naked eye. The bacteria, which they’ve named Epulopiscium viviparus, lives symbiotically within some tropical marine surgeonfish.
Lab-grown meat, food created by microorganisms and plant-based foods that mimic the taste of meat could help reduce environmental impacts of food systems, a new UN report co-authored by Cornell researchers finds.
