At a time when climate change is causing intense droughts to alternate with torrential rains, the RADMOGG project aims to assess the dynamics of the underground reservoirs to which the blue gold that falls from the sky flows, based on the measurement of minute variations in the Earth's gravity. The project's initiator, Landon Halloran, assistant professor at the University of Neuchâtel's Centre for Hydrogeology and Geothermal Energy (CHYN), presented its objectives at the Swiss Geoscience Meeting on November 17 and 18 in Mendrisio (TI

History / Archeology

In his doctoral thesis defended at the University of Neuchâtel, Paul Jobin demonstrates the complex and fruitful relationship between archaeology and civil engineering. Or how ancient remains influence the timing and implementation of future economic developments in Switzerland.

Pre-emptively decorating endangered black rhinos to protect them from poaching. A doctoral student in biology at the University of Neuchâtel (UniNE) has studied the impact of this measure on the animals' behavior in ten nature reserves in South Africa. Vanessa Duthé presents her analysis today in the leading scientific journal PNAS, as part of the Black Rhino Conservation Project she initiated

A major international study conducted mainly at the University of Neuchâtel (Switzerland) has revealed that the Apodera vas shell amoeba is found almost exclusively in regions originating from Gondwana, the supercontinent that gave rise to some of today's continents. The study also highlights the threat posed by global warming to the biodiversity of soil micro-organisms, of which this amoeba is one. These are just two of the conclusions reached by the twenty-eight contributors to this study, published in the scientific journal Diversity and Distributions

Since the dawn of time, humans have used plants to heal themselves. But it wasn't until the 18th century that we began to understand that this healing power came from certain specific compounds: active ingredients. In a collective work for the general public entitled 'Plantes soignantes' (Healing plants), the contributions of two biology researchers from the University of Neuchâtel, Emmanuel Defossez and Sergio Rasmann, retrace the major stages in this quest, the potential of which remains largely unexplored
