Partially protected marine areas create confusion and don’t meet their broad conservation objectives, UNSW researchers have found.
UNSW Sydney researchers collected and tested samples of humpback whale "snot" – similar to mucus from a human nose – and found severely depleted microbial diversity a
UNSW researchers have linked the burden of humpback whales’ annual migration to depleted microbial diversity in their airways – an indicator of overall health.
New research shows, in a world first, a recreation of the evolution of flowering plants through time - a complete angiosperm 'time-tree'.
Half of the world’s tropical plant species may struggle to germinate by 2070 because of global warming, a new UNSW study predicts.
UNSW Sydney researchers have started a platypus monitoring study after they returned three of the iconic creatures to Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve, near Canberra.
