An unexpected benefit. Wild horses help landscape adapt to climate changes

Climate changes increasingly influence landscape development. Five extremely arid years in a row that reigned in Central Europe from 2015 have had an impact on the condition of wild nature and agricultural pastures.

Regular monitoring by scientists has proven that pastures where wild horses and other large ungulates graze in the former military area of Milovice, close to Prague, are in significantly better shape than a great deal of other areas in other parts of …

A scientific study has shown that the Mediterranean is getting warmer more quickly than the world’s average

In comparison to worldwide average figures, the average temperature is growing 20 percent faster in the region around the Mediterranean Sea. Unless measures for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions are adopted, 250 million people in the region will face droughts and lack of water within twenty years. This is the result of a study carried out by the Mediterranean Institute of Marine and Terrestrial Biodiversity and Ecology.

Scientists consider this study the first comprehensive …
