Application of deep learning for the analysis of stomata: a review of current methods and future directions (2024)
Journal Article

Plant physiology and metabolism relies on the function of stomata, structures on the surface of above ground organs, which facilitate the exchange of gases with the atmosphere. The morphology of the guard cells and corresponding pore which make up th...

Changes in nitrogen functional genes and microbial populations in soil profiles of a peatland under different burning regimes (2024)
Journal Article

Microbes in peatlands provide key ecosystem services and are essential for their role in biogeochemical cycling. Prescribed burning is a common aspect of peatland management but the practice has been criticized for being ecologically damaging due to...

The Cool Farm Biodiversity metric: an evidence-based online tool to report and improve management of biodiversity at farm scale (2024)
Journal Article

Halting biodiversity loss and achieving food security are both aims of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, but there is complex interplay between them. Agriculture drives biodiversity loss, but biodiversity provides benefits t...

How do management decisions impact butterfly assemblages in smallholding oil palm plantations in Peninsular Malaysia? (2024)
Journal Article

In the world's leading palm oil-producing countries (Indonesia and Malaysia), smallholders make up about 40 per cent of total oil palm plantation area. Management in smallholdings can be highly variable, ranging from intensive monoculture to polycult...

A global compilation of diatom silica oxygen isotope records from lake sediment – trends and implications for climate reconstruction (2024)
Journal Article

Oxygen isotopes in biogenic silica (δ18OBSi) from lake sediments allow for quantitative reconstruction of past hydroclimate and proxy-model comparison in terrestrial environments. The signals of individual records have been attributed to different fa...
