Biologists Jannik Hansen and Jannie Linnebjerg attach small pieces of chicken wire to the Arctic tundra near the Zackenberg Research Station, North-East Greenland. Small fishing line snares are affixed to the chicken wire. Photo: Peter Bondo
The long-tailed skua gets its legs tangled in small loops of thin fishing line acting as snares. Photo: Peter Bondo
A model of a magpie (right) is painted and fitted with a pair of long tail feathers so the skua (left) thinks it is a real bird. The wire in front of the model is from a loudspeaker that plays recordings of bird calls of the little skua. Photo: Peter Bondo
Biologist Jannik Hansen prepares to release the little skua after replacing the small light logger that has recorded important data for two years. Photo: Peter Bondo
The light logger is labelled ‘NJ’ and only weighs 1.9 grams. Photo: Peter Bondo

Round trip from North-East Greenland to South Africa – a busy bird reveals its route

Researchers have recaptured a long-tailed skua at Zackenberg, North-East Greenland – two years after attaching a light logger to its leg. The small logger contains detailed information about two round trips from northern Greenland to southern Africa.

Social heritage means nothing to engineering students

While social mobility is moving slowly in society, things are really happening in the engineering degree programmes, where one of today’s most striking pattern breaks is in full swing. Read more (in Danish only) here.

By means of chemistry, it can make good sense to transform the much-criticised waste material CO<sub>2</sub> into pharmaceutical products. (Photo: Anders Trærup, Aarhus University)
This image shows one of the chambers the researchers use to transform CO<sub>2</sub> into pharmaceuticals in one single process. Hazardous carbon monoxide is produced in the chambers and then turned into pharmaceuticals without being touched by human hands. (Photo: Anders Trærup, Aarhus University)

CO2 – from waste material to pharmaceutical in one single process

In one single process, Aarhus researchers are producing medicine out of carbon dioxide (CO2) – the major climate culprit. The process simultaneously spares workers in the pharmaceutical industry from contact with hazardous carbon monoxide.
