The acceleration of biodiversity change began millennia ago and was often larger than the shift from the last ice age to modern temperatures, a UiB study published in Science shows.
“With this commemoration, the Plastic Whale Heritage alliance and the University of Bergen want to help ensure that the Plastic Whale’s message is not forgotten – the health of our oceans is at stake, and we must act now.”
The University of Bergen and its partners collected four tonnes of plastic waste during this year’s plastic clearing drive. By comparison, 1.5 kg of plastic were found in the stomach of the Plastic Whale.
As part of the University of Bergen’s marine research initiative, an interdisciplinary network on plastic pollution has been set up for researchers, PhD candidates and students.

Mighty floods have carved out deep canyons on Earth. New research suggests this may have required less power than previously thought. Collecting such data, however, may be demanding.
EECRG members have been co-authors of a paper published in Science looking at the impact of human arrival on island biodiversity.
As grantee number 10,000 to receive funding from the European Research Council (ERC), Inga Berre will use applied mathematics in order to understand what happens underground when heat is extracted from the Earth's interior.
Global social and environmental issues have recently seen a surge of youth involvement; a development that could be explained by the fact that the youth of today will grow old in the world we are creating now. This new study, published in Global Environmental Change led by Alicia Donnellan Barraclough (UiB, CeSAM), shows that young people have an in-depth understanding of the social-ecological... Read more
This spring, German theoretical physicist Johannes Fiedler will join University of Bergen, thanks to grants from The Humboldt Foundation and Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions.
