Research at the Faculty of Science

Research at the Faculty of Science is outstanding in many areas. It covers a wide range of fields - from elementary particles in the atomic nucleus, to the outer limits of the universe - from the amazing microcosm of the cell, to the complex ecosystems in the oceans.

Forests protect animals and plants against warming

The impacts of climate warming are buffered inside forests due to the thermal insulation of forest canopies.

Migratory birds, insects and plants adapt differently to climate change

A warmer climate has caused plants flowering and migratory birds arriving earlier in the year than before. Now a global study also shows that changes in the life cycles between plants and animals that depend on each other is also moving faster.
