Discovery of early, 'croc-like' reptile sheds new light on evolution of dinosaurs

Discovery of early, 'croc-like' reptile sheds new light on evolution of dinosaurs
Description
A new species of ancient reptile has been described by scientists at the University of Birmingham, filling a critical gap in the fossil record of dinosaur cousins and suggesting that some features thought to characterise dinosaurs evolved much earlier than previously thought.

Future Forests and Climate Change

Description
This week's launch of a pioneering new forest research facility at the University of Birmingham marks the beginning of a unique experiment to reveal how our forests are likely to react to the elevated carbon dioxide levels expected by 2050, and the potential of forest ecosystems to store carbon and thus mitigate future climate change.

Unique experiment set to reveal the effects of climate change on the forests of the future

Unique experiment set to reveal the effects of climate change on the forests of the future
Description
A major new decade-long experiment to study the impact of climate and environmental change on woodlands is launching today. The Free Air Carbon Dioxide Enrichment (FACE) experiment at the Birmingham Institute of Forest Research (BIFoR) will assess the impact of raised carbon dioxide (CO2) levels on whole forest ecosystems by artificially raising the CO2 level around patches of mature woodland.
