Good morning/afternoon wherever you are!

Today’s digest is really focusing on the environment- cilmate change (check the section right below), water, stone and coral reefs. We also included two microbiome framework papers worth reading and for all the athelates (and does who struggle to go the gym)- How is our microbiome linked to physical performance?

Have a good one!
