This Day is an opportunity to promote full and equal access to and participation in science for women and girls. Gender equality is a global priority for UNESCO, and the support of young girls, their education and their full ability to make their ideas heard are levers for development and peace. Tackling some of the greatest challenges of the Agenda for Sustainable Development -- from improving health to combating climate change -- will rely on harnessing all talent. That means getting more women working in these fields.

Single classification system could end centuries of disagreement and improve global efforts to tackle biodiversity loss. Researchers hope a single recognised list would improve global efforts to tackle biodiversity loss, the trade in endangered wildlife, biosecurity and conservation. With at least 26 competing concepts, biologists have never reached agreement over what constitutes a species, the most basic classification of an organism. As a result, conservation organisations, national governments and scientists often use separate lists of mammals, fungi and other organisms with differing taxonomic descriptions. For example, scientific evidence indicates the African elephant could be two species — the forest elephant and the savanna elephant. A widely used definition of a species centres on whether a group of living things can exchange DNA by creating viable offspring. But in several cases, the lines between species are blurred, causing disagreement between taxonomists — the scientists who discover, name and classify species.
Scientists Destroyed a Nest of Murder Hornets. Here’s What They Learned.
December 31, Kosuke Morita led a team of scientists that has been awarded the right to name a synthetic element they created, which will become element on the periodic table A Japanese research team has been granted the right to name new element , the first on the periodic table to be named by Asian scientists, the team's institute said Thursday. It is the first element on the periodic table to be discovered and named by Asian scientists, Riken said. Synthetic elements do not occur naturally on Earth and are produced artificially through experiments. Japan has a proud research tradition and its citizens have won about 20 Nobel prizes in science and medicine, including two in
