U.S. scientists say global warming might have a greater influence on some plants' annual growth cycles than previously thought. Researchers led by Heidi Steltzer of Colorado State University's Natural Resource Ecology Laboratory said their findings suggest accelerated snowmelt caused by desert dust blowing into mountainous areas changes how alpine plants respond to seasonal climate changes. Current mountain dust levels in Colorado's alpine valleys are five times greater than they were before...

Did volatile halogenated gases from giant salt lakes at the end of the Permian Age lead to a mass extinction of species? The largest mass extinction in the history of the earth could have been triggered off by giant salt lakes, whose emissions of halogenated gases changed the atmospheric composition so dramatically that vegetation was irretrievably damaged. At least that is what an international team of scientists have reported in the most recent edition of the "Proceedings of the Russian...
