More than 50 million tonnes of fruit and vegetables grown across Europe are discarded each year, largely because they do not meet supermarkets and consumers’ standards of how they should look, the study showed.
More than one-third of farmed fruit and vegetables never reaches supermarket shelves because it is misshapen or the wrong size, research suggests.
Man-made structures such as oil platforms can help protect sea creatures threatened by climate change and habitat loss, a study suggests.
Rigs, shipwrecks and other structures in the North Sea could play a vital role in holding coral populations together and increasing their resilience, researchers say.
Coral bleaching across Australia’s Great Barrier Reef has been increasing since the late 18th century, and may threaten its long-term survival, new research shows.

Cave-dwelling corals in the Mediterranean can work alongside one another to catch and eat stinging jellyfish say scientists, including researchers from the University's School of GeoSciences.
Research led by the School of GeoSciences suggests that forests in tropical regions could soon become a source of greenhouse gases, contributing to global warming rather than helping to counteract it.
