    Clear connection between climate and soil water permeability - or is it?

    A man kneeling in a field, inspecting a water meter. A new meta-analysis of 466 studies shows that climate is linked to soil water permeability, challenging the dominant explanation. At the same time, the researchers suspect that there is another explanation hidden behind the data. - 'If we can understand the factors that influence soil water permeability, it could help society to better manage large amounts of rainfall,' says John Koestel, researcher at SLU and Agroscope in Switzerland.

    Bee engaged for our pollinators – SLU is!

    Bees and other pollinators, such as butterflies, bats and hummingbirds, are part of the biodiversity on which we all depend for our survival. They are increasingly under threat from human activities and it is, therefore, crucial to monitor their decline and halt the loss of biodiversity. To raise awareness of the importance of pollinators, the United Nations has designated 20 May as World Bee Day. And today, 22 May, is the International Day for Biological Biodiversity – a day to mark the importance of building back biodiversity.
