Tru-Band™ Technology from TruLite LED lets growers increase profits by driving down operating costs by using LED grow lights. Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 07, 2013
Pigments found in plants and purple bacteria employed to provide protection from sun damage do more than just that. Researchers from the University of Toronto and University of Glasgow have found that they also help to harvest light energy during photosynthesis.
A biologist at Emory University says evolutionary biologists need to shift their focus from present-day molecules to synthesized, ancestral ones.
An international team of biologists led by Indiana University's David M. Kehoe has identified both the enzyme and molecular mechanism critical for controlling a chameleon-like process that allows one of the world's most abundant ocean phytoplankton, once known as blue-green algae, to maximize light harvesting for photosynthesis.
The molecular mechanisms for a spectrum of dahlias are well known, but it wasn't until now scientists understood the black-red coloring of the rarer version of the flower.
Have you ever looked at a peacock’s feathers, a butterfly’s wing or an oily puddle on the road and wondered why they have those shimmering, vibrant colors?
Research out today from a multidisciplinary team headed by the University of Cincinnati examines parallels between e-Paper technology (the technology behind sunlight-readable devices like the Kindle) and biological organisms that change color.
A team of American scientists has literally shed new light on the activities of creatures living half-a-mile below the ocean surface.
Chameleons are small to mid-size reptiles that belong to one of the best known lizard families (Chamaeleonidae). They are famous for their ability to change their color also because of their elongated tongue and their eyes which can be moved independently of each other. The name "Chameleon" means "earth lion" and is derived from the Greek words chamai (on the ground, on the earth) and leon (lion). Distribution and habitat The main distribution of Chameleons is Africa and Madagascar,...
