The health of ecosystems based on the ground beetle
EPFL scientists just published an open tool for predicting the dynamics of ground beetle populations – important bioindicators for sustainable park management and for monitoring ecosystems – in Italy’s Gran Paradiso National Park. The tool incorporates satellite and other remote sensing data.
Switzerland's lockdown has sharply reduced the cases of COVID-19
