This book chapter advances SDG 15 by exploring how agriculture functions as a complex adaptive system. It assesses how recent changes have interacted with agro-ecosystem features to result in a loss of resilience, and suggests key research directions to help harmonize production and ecosystem function, drawing primarily on Canadian examples.
This book chapter advances SDGs 13, 14 and 15 by exploring “passive” mangrove restoration strategies as a preferred restoration in order to provide better opportunities for blue carbon abatement and increase resilience of coasts to rising sea levels and biodiversity loss.
The upcoming Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) meeting, and adoption of the new Global Biodiversity Framework, represent an opportunity to transform humanity's relationship with nature.

Due to changing climate, birds experience new challenges for thermoregulation. The endocrine mechanisms that regulate mitochondrial function and plasticity of thermoregulation need to be unveiled. Plasticity may ameliorate climate change effects on thermoregulation to some extent.

Maintaining or restoring connectivity among wildlife populations is a primary strategy to overcome the negative impacts of habitat fragmentation.

In The World We Want we explore key themes related to the SDGs: leadership, innovation and youth. Dr. Márcia Balisciano, Global Head of Corporate Responsibility, interviews influencers and thought leaders across disciplines on how we can build back better to achieve the global goals.
Advancing SDG 15, this article aims to assess the agro-environmental sustainability of irrigating crops with produced water in hot and hyper-arid climate.

Advancing SDGs 2 and 15, this article explores the relationship between pesticides and earthworms.
Advancing SDGs 2 and 15, a field study was conducted in Northern Jordan to assess the influence of combined in-situ water harvesting techniques, micro-catchment and mulching on soil moisture content, plant morphology, gas exchange and midday stem water potential of young pistachio trees.
Restoring forest cover is a prominent option for climate mitigation.
