Plants have several billion personal friends

The microbiome of a plant can be just as important for the well-being of the plant as our gut microbiota are important for our own health. Researchers from Aarhus University are exploring the world of plant roots to learn more about their microbes and their functions.

Highly educated men are more positive to the notion of eating insects

About one third of Danish consumers are positive towards the notion of eating insects, and particularly men living in the Copenhagen area. The consumers prefer products containing processed insects instead of whole insects. A new report from Aarhus University demonstrates this.

New understanding of the well-being of climate-stressed plants

As a result of climate change, there is an increasing need for more intelligent, efficient and safe farming. A soon-to-be completed EU project – ModCarboStress – might have taken an important step in this work: getting to understand the stressed plants better. The project indicates the work to be carried out at iClimate – the forthcoming research…
