Bats rely heavily on vision when orienting over long distances since echolocation is error-prone. A study reveals the mechanisms a migratory mammal uses for navigation.
05.04.2019 · Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research
The burning of fossil fuels is fundamentally changing our planet. A computer simulation confirms how outstandingly important changes in CO2 levels are for Earth’s climate.
Going with the flow
