First Definitive Proof Of Bacteria-feeding Behavior In Green Algae
2013-05-24 12:41:52

A team of researchers has captured images of green alga consuming bacteria, offering a glimpse at how early organisms dating back more than 1 billion years may have acquired free-living photosynthetic cells.

Amazon River Found To Be A Metabolic Hotspot

The Amazon rainforest is known as the lungs of the planet because it inhales carbon dioxide and exudes oxygen into the atmosphere. The plants of the forest use the carbon dioxide to promote leafy growth, which eventually falls to the ground and decomposes or washes away by the region’s plentiful rainfall.

One of the key elements to understanding the proliferation of life on Earth is modeling how electron transfer – the passage of an electron from one element to another – can be catalyzed. But the environmental conditions on Earth some 3 billion years ago were much different than they are today.

Researchers Suprised By Arctic Resiliency In Carbon Storage
2013-05-17 08:15:10

Certain assumptions were made by UC Santa Barbara doctoral student Seeta Sistla and her adviser, environmental studies professor Josh Schimel, when they traveled north recently to study the effects of long-term warming on the carbon storage of the Arctic.

A new global-scale modeling study that takes into account nitrogen – a key nutrient for plants – estimates that carbon emissions from human activities on land were 40 percent higher in the 1990s than in studies that did not account for nitrogen.

Charcoal From Wildfires Enters Waterways And Works Its Way To Oceans
