A team including Carnegie's Martin Jonikas developed a highly sophisticated tool that will transform the work of plant geneticists Photosynthesis provides fixed carbon and energy for nearly all life on Earth, yet many aspects of this fascinating process remain mysterious. For example, little is known about how it is regulated in response to changes in light intensity. More fundamentally, we do not know the full list of the parts of the molecular machines that perform photosynthesis in any...

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online During the Northern Hemisphere's growing season, data returned from satellite sensors shows that the Midwest has more photosynthetic activity than any other region of the planet, according to a recent NASA report. School children are taught that plants convert light to energy through the process of photosynthesis. What is less known, however, is that chlorophyll also emits a fraction of the absorbed light as fluorescent glow, which...

Spring tree care advice from certified arborists at The Davey Tree Expert Company. (PRWEB) March 27, 2014 Trees offer shade on the hottest of days, structures to hang tire swings from, and provide beauty to landscapes. Yet when that favorite tree falls ill, it goes from being an asset to a liability. Yet, identifying a sick tree is easy, says R.J. Laverne, urban forester for The Davey Tree Expert Company. He suggests a simple visual inspection to help homeowners determine the right time...

Photosynthesis Measurements From Space
2014-03-25 10:22:18

Carnegie Institution Plants convert energy from sunlight into chemical energy during a process called photosynthesis. This energy is passed on to humans and animals that eat the plants, and thus photosynthesis is the primary source of energy for all life on Earth. But 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. New research from a...

Why Are Leaf Epidermal Cells Shaped Like A Jigsaw Puzzle Piece?
2014-03-14 15:02:41

University of California - Riverside UC Riverside scientists discover auxin sensing and signaling complex on plant cell surface that explains why leaf epidermal cells have jigsaw puzzle-piece shapes Auxin, a small molecule, is a plant hormone discovered by Charles Darwin about 100 years ago. Over the years that followed it became understood to be the most important and versatile plant hormone controlling nearly all aspects of plant growth and development, such as bending of shoots...

Photos And Lab Analysis Needed For Leaf Study
2014-01-23 15:27:34

Brown University Automated remote photography is a convenient, labor-saving research tool for tracking leaf function and doing forest research. But does photography mirror what's actually happening on the ground? A new study finds photography accurately tracks the timing of red pigments in the fall, but the timing of green in the spring and summer — not so much. Every picture tells a story, but the story digital photos tell about how forests respond to climate change could be...

Scientists at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center have made several scientific discoveries demonstrating the significant roles Heterotrimeric G proteins play in plant development and yield. Sona Pandey, Ph.D., principal investigator at the Danforth Plant Science Center and her collaborators have published several papers on their research in recent months. Pandey and collaborators showed that “G proteins” occur in a wide range of land plants and algae. This discovery was published...

Beer Tapping Physics Explained
2013-11-25 04:26:11

Alan McStravick for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online My first experience with the behavior of forcefully tapping the bottom of a beer bottle to the top of another, creating a foamy overflow, was in the rowdy crew bar of the Queen Elizabeth 2 on which I served in the entertainment department in my much younger days. And more than one bottled brew was significantly emptied onto the bare floors of one frat house party or another during numerous college weekends. Now, thanks to a group of...

Bittercress (Barbarea vulgaris), also commonly known as Herb Barbara, Rocketcress, Yellow Rocketcress, Winter Rocket, and Wound Rocket, is a European biennial herb. This plant displays a rosette of shiny, dark green leaves at the base and additional pinnately divided leaves on the stem. In the spring, yellow flowers originate in tightly packed terminal groups just above the foliage. Bittercress grows wildly as a weed in many parts of North America. The flowers can be in bloom May...

The Par Rubber Tree (Hevea brasiliensis), is a tree belonging to the family Euphorbiaceae. It is the most economically important member of the genus Hevea. It is of major economic importance because its sap-like extract (latex) can be collected and is the primary source of natural rubber. The Pará rubber tree initially grew only in the Amazon Rainforest. Now most rubber tree plantations are in southeast Asia and tropical Africa. Attempts to cultivate the tree in other areas in South...
