• Estimating the global conservation status of more than 15,000 Amazonian tree species

    Analyses of forest loss and protected areas suggest that 36 to 57% of Amazonian tree flora may qualify as “globally threatened.”

  • Experimental discovery of a topological Weyl semimetal state in TaP

    Photoemission established tantalum phosphide as a Weyl semimetal, which hosts exotic Weyl fermion quasiparticles and Fermi arcs.

  • Selective targeting of the BRG/PB1 bromodomains impairs embryonic and trophoblast stem cell maintenance

    PFI-3, a novel inhibitor targeting the bromodomains of essential components of the BAF/PBAF complex, affects the differentiation of ESC and TSC.

About The Cover

August Online Cover of Science Advances shows a laborer working at a brickyard kiln in Noida, India, suffering the effects of a blistering heat wave that hovered above 45 degree Celsius (113F). This issue features a research article detailing advances in accurately calculating and understanding local and regional impacts of climate change. The research presents models that project risks from new types of extreme heat waves that are likely to hit regional hotspots , particularly across South Asia, towards the end of the 21st century. The authors identify areas where climate change, in absence of significant mitigation, is likely to severely impact human health and habitability in one of the most heavily populated regions on Earth.
