A team of ecologists and microbiologists that includes NIOO's Paul Bodelier has identified a unique organism in samples from a Romanian cave nicknamed 'Stinky Mountain'. The novel bacteria can grow on methane, an important greenhouse gas that contributes to global warming.
Join the Pint of Science lecture where Paul Bodelier and Chrats Melkonian tell us all about their recent discovery of Mycobacterium (a type of immobile, rod-shaped bacteria) that live on eating methane. Hear what we can learn from these microbes and how we can use that to tackle the issues facing methane in our atmosphere today.
Carbon storage is a hot item. Almost literally, as it is closely linked to climate warming. NIOO researchers discover more and more about the role of the living soil within our planet's carbon cycle. That role is: very influential, invaluable and essential for a sustainable climate policy.
