The photosynthetic activity of various regions is changing due to human interaction with the environment, including climate change, which makes large-scale studies of photosynthetic activity of interest.

Reimagining How Earth Emerged Out Of Ice Age
2014-03-19 14:15:38

Researchers, publishing a paper in the journal Nature, say rapid erosion in mountain regions could explain why the Earth isn’t essentially still a snowball.

Amazon Inhales More Carbon Than It Emits
2014-03-18 20:28:30

A new NASA-led study seven years in the making has confirmed that natural forests in the Amazon remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere than they emit, therefore reducing global warming.

Nanotechnology Could Create Bionic Plants
2014-03-18 04:47:12

A team of MIT researchers writing in the journal Nature Materials say they have discovered the first steps in a new field of science known as "plant nanobionics."

How Mountains And Rivers Make Life Possible
2014-03-14 14:47:09

Favorable conditions for life on Earth are enabled in part by the natural shuttling of carbon dioxide from the planet's atmosphere to its rocky interior and back again.

Looking To Geology To Find Answers Of How Life On Earth Originated
2014-03-13 10:20:59

By simulating a geologic precursor of cell metabolism, a team of British and American scientists have taken an important step toward understanding how life arose on Earth. Widely supported theories posit that life emerged on Earth around hydrothermal vents on the ocean floor...
