Research by UCLA and others finds that the crayfish disrupt native predators that eat mosquito larvae.
A UCLA study projects that as temperatures rise, and the number and severity of heat waves increases, getting pregnant may become harder than ever.
Low-income and minority students are particularly affected, and the problem stands to worsen as global temperatures rise, according to public policy researcher Jisung Park.
New UCLA-led research demonstrates the financial benefits of using sources such as groundwater.
Researchers at the UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability predict the state will experience dramatic shifts between extreme dry and extreme wet weather by end of 21st century.
“It’s critical to educate the next generation of scientists to understand how and why our climate is changing, and what measures must be taken to adapt,” said professor Alex Hall.
Results from the evaluation of 14 estuaries along the Pacific coast of the United States will help to inform policy on conservation of wetlands.
The hardy marine invertebrates survive a bleaching process but their growth is slowed, a UCLA study conducted off the coast of American Samoa has found.
UCLA biologists' research focusing on the yellow warbler looks at species’ challenges and their capacity to adapt.
Volunteers analyze photos from NASA’s Landsat program to locate the coastal ecosystems in oceans around the world.
To understand how weather patterns behaved centuries ago, the researchers examined the rings of trees such as limber pines and bristlecone pines, the oldest living organisms on Earth.
UCLA researchers predicted what the timing of snow and rainwater runoff in the Sierra Nevada could look like by the end of the 21st century.
Panelists focused on ways in which California can continue to lead the charge via legislative and regulatory innovations at the state and local level.
Data collected in the Congo by UCLA scientists and others will help empower global initiatives to protect the planet.
“Climate Lab” — a six-episode video series on climate change from Vox and the University of California — is already getting plenty of attention although it's just getting started.
UCLA and Los Angeles are collaborating on a new L.A. Sustainability Leadership Council to guide the city's efforts to build a sustainable future for Los Angeles.
Scientists from UCLA and other universities developed a system that tests when global warming contributes to record-setting weather events, and to what extent.
California experienced record rainfall this year, and may have even made headway against the state’s historic drought. Now that lush landscapes abound and spring is upon us, what does this mean for allergy sufferers?
This vernal equinox — the first day of spring — flora and fauna from Palos Verdes to the Yosemite Valley have been rejuvenated by a historically wet, snowy winter.
The UCLA study has important implications in an era of climate change.
Professor Alex Hall’s research shows that, as temperatures warm in the Sierra Nevada, a deluge could overwhelm California’s patchwork network of dams and reservoirs that currently supplies 60 percent of the state's water.
To counter likely cuts in federal funding for research into climate change and energy innovation, California’s government must fill the gap.
UCLA professor Alex Hall will present key findings from a study on future impacts of climate change.
New research shows that a collapse of an ice sheet 14,000 years ago in what is now western Canada triggered a reorganization of the jet stream in a century — a geological blink of an eye.
UCLA scientists are studying the Sierra Nevada's climate future using a technique to create simulations to predict outcomes under different circumstances and help them understand the physical reasons for the projected changes.
