"Mongabay", a non-profit conservation and environmental online platform published a commendatory report on KLI Fellow Roberto Cazzolla Gatti´s new study on certified oil palm plantations and their links to past deforestation: https://news.mongabay.com/2020/08/palm-oil-certification-sustainable-rspo-deforestation-habitat-study/
Analyzing over three decades of high-resolution satellite images, Cazzolla Gatti and Velichevskaya argue that the "sustainable palm oil" certification can greenwash the production of this tropical crop.
Congratulations to KLI Alumn Barbara FISCHER (University of Vienna) who received an Elise Richter Grant by the Austrian National Fund (FWF) for her project "Why is childbirth so difficult in humans?"
The grant will fund a ClimArtLab workshop at the Science-Art-Society interface.
How can an intricately complex and interlocked structure evolve such amazing functional diversity in mammals? Latest work co-authored by KLI fellow Nicole Grunstra talks about the evolution and evolvability of the mammalian ear.
Can the COVID-19 pandemic trigger pathways toward sustainable global futures?
What is a social-ecological system? How does it connect to evolutionary theorizing? Co-organizer Tim Waring explains the backstory and hopes for the KLI working group: Evolutionary Theories for Social-Ecological Change.
