Latest Nitrogen Stories
Tropical forests that are timber harvested or cleared for agriculture can help reduce their own recovery time by capturing natural nitrogen fertilizer and carbon dioxide more quickly when making a comeback.
The nutrient known as “fixed” nitrogen, which is essential to the health of the ocean, is controlled by the cyclic wobble of the Earth on its axis.
The first institution-level model to estimate the amount of reactive nitrogen released into the environment—a contributor to smog, acid rain, and climate change—is enabling the University of Virginia to quantify its nitrogen footprint and take steps to reduce it.
In a discovery that further demonstrates just how unexpected and unusual nature can be, scientists have found two strains of bacteria whose symbiotic relationship is unlike anything seen before.
Life is not a walk in the park for the world's largest bacteria, that live as soft, noodle-like, white strings on the bottom of the ocean depths.
Plant scientists from the University of Nottingham in the United Kingdom have announced a revolutionary new system that allows plants to take nitrogen from the atmosphere and potentially eliminate the need for chemical fertilizers that can pollute the ecosystem where they are used.
A simple, low-cost and eco-friendly method of creating nitrogen-doped graphene nanoplatelets (NGnPs), which could be used in dye-sensitized solar cells and fuel cells, is published in Scientific Reports today.
Ulsan, South Korea, July 23, 2013 - (ACN Newswire) - A simple, low-cost and eco-friendly method of creating nitrogen-doped graphene nanoplatelets (NGnPs), which could be used in dye-sensitized solar cells
