The Biosphere 2 Podcast features thought provoking in-depth interviews with scientists, authors, engineers, entrepreneurs, artists, and policy makers exploring the threads between Earth, its living systems, and our place in the Universe. Hosted by Aaron Sparks Bugaj.
Biosphere 2 has created an exciting online opportunity for our researchers to virtually interact with students around the world! Our new 'Session with a Scientist' program allows students to connect with mentors at Biosphere 2 in real-time, sparking their interest in science to nurture student curiosity, engagement, and interest in future science careers.
A new study, authored by Biosphere 2 researchers and published in Nature Plants journal, may help to create more accurate climate predictions models in the future. The unique rainforest habitat at Biosphere 2 enabled researchers to control weather variables and gather empirical data on tropical forests that would be difficult or impossible to replicate elsewhere. The findings suggest that rainforests may be more resistant to temperature increases than previously thought.
