How do information systems contribute to greening the planet

Due to the current climate crisis, information systems (IS) are increasingly asked to not only support economic goals but also to promote environmentally sustainable behaviours.The advocated role for these “green IS” is that they enable practices and processes with improved environmental performance. An example can include facilitating the distribution of renewable energy sources.Knowledge about how exactly information systems can carry out this role. However, this knowledge is nascent, emergent, and incomplete.Some studies have:investigated factors that influence organisational adoption of green …

Identifying emergent ecosystem responses through genes-to-ecosystems integration at Stordalen Mire

Permafrost thaw induced by climate change is predicted to make up to 174 Pg of near-surface carbon (less than 3m below the surface) available for microbial degradation by 2100. Despite having major implications for human health, prediction of the magnitude of carbon loss as carbon dioxide (CO2) or methane (CH4) is hampered by our limited knowledge of microbial metabolism of organic matter in these environments. Genome-centric meta-omic analysis of microbial communities provides the necessary information to examine how specific lineages …

Planning new protected areas in a changing climate

Protected areas are the centrepiece of modern conservation management. Anthropocene effects on the Antarctic continent have highlighted the need to establish a modern network of protected areas to secure its unique biodiversity.This project seeks to assist the Antarctic Treaty Consultative Parties in creating a coordinated, continent-wide network of protected areas that will cope with coming environmental changes.
