Glaciers sparked volcanism that harmed ocean health p.35

Sediment records from Alaska, spanning the past 20,000 years, suggest that melting glaciers triggered volcanic episodes that removed oxygen in the northeastern Pacific Ocean, explaining ‘dead zones’ that lasted millennia.

An exceptional fossil lizard from the Jurassic period p.36

Lizards and snakes belong to the highly successful group of reptiles called squamates, but a poor fossil record has obscured their early evolutionary history. A discovery now sheds light on this enigmatic portion of the tree of life.

Electrons turn a piece of wire into a laser-like light source p.38

Shining a laser on an iron wire generates fast-moving electrons that boost the electromagnetic waves created by the light interacting with the wire. This way of making laser-like light could surpass existing methods that use electrons.

The point of no return for species facing heatwaves p.39

A climate-driven rise in exposure to extreme temperatures will hasten mortality. To predict such losses, we need to know how quickly organisms succumb to stressful temperatures. A study shows how heat-failure rates vary across species.
