AIAS Fellow Amy M. Iler publishes significant results in Science

The results of the Science publication show that sex-specific responses to climate change in plants alter population species characteristic and performance. The pace at which the species characteristic responds to climate change is unprecedentedly fast, suggesting that species range shifts are lagging substantially behind climate change.

The layers of the food chain are pulling themselves apart because climate change is in full swing turning the natural order upside down and bringing it out of balance. This is the thought-provoking conclusion of one of the largest and most extensive studies to date on this subject. (Illustration: Colourbox)

Nature publication by AIAS Former Fellow Toke T. Høye

Høye and his co-authors have published an ambitious study that has used more than 10,000 datasets to examine how the phenological characteristics—such as the timing of reproduction—of various taxa alter in response to climate change, and suggests that differing levels of climate sensitivity could lead to the desynchronization of seasonal events…

Method developed by AIAS Fellow Tomasz K. Wojdacz potentially applicable in cancer detection and personalisation of treatment

This week a method potentially applicable in detection and personalisation of cancer treatment developed during his PhD studies by Tomasz K. Wojdacz in collaboration with Associate Professor Lise Lotte Hansen was independently evaluated for clinical use and the results of that study have been published in the prestigious Nature Biotechnology.
