A team of researchers from The University of Western Australia and two Canadian universities has applied a first-of-its-kind technique that measures the long-term life cycle of sulphur, helping to explain the preferential location of high-value mineral deposits at the edges of ancient continents.
Australia’s strategy with its Indo-Pacific partners to secure space, maintain the space environment and enhance earth observation capabilities will form the foundation of an international conference, hosted by the Perth USAsia Centre in collaboration with The University of Western Australia.
Researchers from The University of Western Australia and the Australian National University have uncovered new evidence that suggests dingoes arrived in Australia between 3,348 and 3,081 years ago, more recently than previously thought.
An urgent call for decision makers to raise awareness of the nutritionally-dense and climate-resilient benefits of neglected and underutilized species (NUS) has been made in a book published this month by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization.
A global research team including scientists from The University of Western Australia has discovered sea lily (isocrinid crinoids) fossils, providing new evidence the species lived in shallow water in the Southern Hemisphere millions of years longer than previously thought.
The potential for devastating crop diseases to be controlled biologically is one step closer after a discovery by researchers from The University of Western Australia and Huazhong Agricultural University in China.
The Achilles’ heel of coral growth is high temperatures, not ocean acidification, according to researchers from The University of Western Australia and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies. The research will be presented tomorrow in Canberra at the Coral Reef Futures Symposium.
Global leaders will examine key issues and opportunities facing the minerals exploration sector at a summit to be held at The University of Western Australia between Wednesday 19 April and Friday 21 April.
A research scientist from The University of Western Australia with a mission to increase food security in East Africa has been named the first Australian-based Senior TED Fellow in the history of the program.
A new tool that makes native seeds easier to handle has won researchers from The University of Western Australia and the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority a top prize at the 2016 WA Innovator of the Year awards.
Researchers at The University of Western Australia are encouraging farmers in south-western Australia to increase organic matter in soils over the long-term, through a study they published showing it can improve grain yield without substantial increases in greenhouse gas emissions.
Increasing soil organic matter in agricultural soils can increase crop productivity and is a well-known strategy for sequestering carbon dioxide to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. However, it may enhance nitrous oxide emissions.
