About Us

Envirobites is a sister site to oceanbites.org and astrobites.org where graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and science professionals come together to write easy-to-read, compelling summaries of recent, cutting-edge research papers in environmental science to make them accessible to non-experts. We want to share our passion for research with all non-scientists who are interested to learn more about the environment: This ranges in scale from identifying science problems and solutions in cities to explaining the complex environmental challenges facing our planet as a whole. Because science is also about identifying and applying technologies to address these challenges, we also cover some success stories! Topics of posts include science in and for cities, human exposure and public health, toxic effects of pollution, climate change, science of remote environments, science through time, and case studies.

Interested to learn more? Let us know and we will get back to you.
