Latest Phosphorus Stories
Cyanobacteria are among the oldest living forms in nature, responsible for generating the atmospheric oxygen we breathe today.
BUFFALO, N.Y., June 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Nearshore and Offshore Lake Erie Nutrient Study (NOLENS) concludes this month, following a year of research headed by principal investigator Chris Pennuto, a research scientist with the Buffalo State College Great Lakes Center and professor of biology.
Exposure to chemical pollutants is of growing concern to regulators, health workers, and environmentalist groups alike.
Scientists develop application of rare earth elements to control phosphorus runoff from livestock manure.
Researchers at the University of Leeds have uncovered new clues to the origins of life on Earth.
The evolution of complex life forms may have gotten a jump start billions of years ago, when geologic events operating over millions of years caused large quantities of phosphorus to wash into the oceans.
Algae--already being eyed for biofuel production--could be put to use right away to remove nitrogen and phosphorus in livestock manure runoff.
NSF-supported ecologist James Elser is internationally recognized as an expert on phosphorus in biology and ecology, and his research could help to change societyâ€™s views on phosphorus use and conservation.
New research in the FASEB Journal shows that high levels of phosphate in sodas and processed foods accelerate the aging process in mice and contribute to age-associated complications such as chronic kidney disease.
Balancing phosphorus levels in crop lands is a key factor that is often overlooked in discussions of global food security, according to a paper published in the International Journal of Agricultural Resources, Governance and Ecology.
In chemistry, a phosphate is a polyatomic ion or radical consisting of one phosphorus atom and four oxygen. In the ionic form, it carries a -3 formal charge, and is denoted PO43-. In a biochemical setting, a free phosphate ion in solution is called inorganic phosphate, to distinguish it from phosphates bound in the form of ATP, or perhaps in DNA or RNA. Inorganic phosphate is generally denoted Pi. Inorganic phosphate can be formed by the reactions of ATP, or ADP, with the formation of the...
