Society for Experimental Biology Growing plants in a microscope is helping scientists to view roots developing in 3D and in real time. "With the growth conditions under our control, we can explore how roots respond to different environmental conditions", says Professor Ernst Stelzer (Goethe Universität Frankfurt am Main, Germany). "This could help plant breeders to select crops which are more resistant to drought or flooding." Scientists already know that lateral roots in plants...

UV Light Used As A New Tool To Detect White-Nose Syndrome In Bats
2014-05-30 12:22:49

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online According to a new study in the Journal of Wildlife Diseases, biologists looking to identify bats with the deadly white-nose syndrome have a new, non-invasive tool – ultraviolet light. The study authors found that when they directed UV light at the wings of bats with WNS, microscopic skin lesions on the animals fluoresce with a distinctive orange-yellow color. “When we first saw this fluorescence of a bat wing in a cave, we knew...

New Hybrid Energy Transfer System Developed
