An El Niño event in 2015-16 led to the lowest ever catch in redlegs. Fisheries must work with research to climate-proof their management.
Reef fish vanish during marine heat waves, but may bounce back quickly on reefs that have few other environmental stressors.
A new study finds 70% of Amazonian dung beetles were killed by the severe fire and droughts of 2015 to 2016. By spreading seeds and poop, dung beetles fertilize forests and aid regrowth of vegetation.
The absence of climate drivers – specifically, the Indian Ocean Dipole and La Niña – explains why Australia has gone so long without heavy rains.
The latest bushfires cannot be compared to Ash Wednesday or Black Saturday. Our nation's fire history is being rewritten.
The Bureau of Meterology says persistent drought and record temperatures were a major driver of Australia's fire activity, and the context for 2019 lies in the past three years of drought.
Southern and eastern Australia need to prepare for heatwaves and increased fire risk this summer, as forecasts predict hot, dry weather.
Bureau of Meteorology researchers painstakingly analysed more than 40 years of data to work out exactly what is causing Australia's spring bushfire phenomenon.
There have been some positive strides made in getting smallholders involved in digital agriculture in Africa
El Niño events can affect millions of people around the world, causing drought in Australia and floods in the Americas.
A combination of reasons have led to the drying of the Sahel.
Canada’s Food Price Report, recently published by Dalhousie University and the University of Guelph, predicts significant price hikes for vegetables this year.
With the dire consequences of climate change looming, archaeologists recognize the importance of communicating their findings on ancient landscapes and the threats that face vulnerable populations.
Water and power cuts prompted by reduced rainfall and drought in Southern Africa have caused major problems for business.
The summer forecast from the Bureau of Meteorology predicts a hot, dry summer.
The forecast arrival of El Niño may mean the east coast of Australia will experience an exceptionally hot and dry summer, but does this mean there will be fewer mosquitoes buzzing about?
After the warmest month on record, it looks like Australia will have an El Niño event – which means the drought is likely to continue.
Record-breaking April heat is likely to continue for at least another month.
The Bureau of Meteorology's climate outlook for April to June is 'neutral', but that doesn't mean we're flying blind, weather-wise.
Engineering practice assumes that floods are randomly distributed but science suggests they are not. This raises questions about the reliability of flood infrastructure and management strategies.
