  1. Jan. 16, 2020Reflecting sunlight away from earth could fight climate change and poverty

    As the world's experts race to find ways to combat climate change, new findings reveal that an experimental process to redirect the sun's energy could mitigate both climate change and global income inequality.

    Appearing in Nature Communications, Juan Moreno-Cruz, a professor in the Faculty of Environment at the University of Waterloo, worked with an international team of transdisciplinary researchers, including Anthony Hardin and Katharine Ricke of UC San Diego's School of Global Policy and Strategy, who lead the study.

  2. Jan. 10, 2020Ridesharing links can boost transit use in the suburbs

    Integrating ridesharing with transit in poorly serviced suburban neighbourhoods is an effective way to get people out of their cars and boost ridership.

    Researchers at the University of Waterloo found two-thirds of people who took advantage of inexpensive rideshare trips in a pilot project used them to travel to or near bus stops.

  3. Jan. 9, 2020 Study finds deforestation is changing animal communication

    Deforestation is changing the way monkeys communicate in their natural habitat, according to a new study.

    This study, led by an anthropologist at the University of Waterloo, offers the first evidence in animal communication scholarship of differences in vocal behaviours in response to different types of forest edge areas.

    Working in a tropical lowland rainforest in Costa Rica, the researchers examined how human-caused forest habitat changes have affected vegetation and, in turn, the rate and length of howling by the group-living howler monkey species.
