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...

UCLA Biologists Uncover The Secrets Involved In Leaf Size, Shape
2013-10-31 14:36:02

Alan McStravick for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Trees, and more specifically, the leaves that adorn them, having predated human's foray into scientific learning, should harbor no mysteries at this point. However, nature continues to surprise us. Whether it is news of gold in eucalyptus leaves, as we learned last week with news out of Australia, or the simple yet profound truth of the math that governs internal leaf structure, human understanding continues to expand with the...

Study Of Photosynthesis Clears Path To Developing New Super-crops
2013-10-17 16:32:44

How some plant species evolved super-efficient photosynthesis had been a mystery. Now, scientists have identified what steps led to that change. Around three per cent of all plants use an advanced form of photosynthesis, which allows them to capture more carbon dioxide, use less water, and grow more rapidly. Overall this makes them over 50% more efficient than plants that use the less efficient form. A new study has traced back the evolutionary paths of all the plants that use advanced...

Understanding the impact of environmental change on plant traits is an important issue in evolutionary biology. As the only direct evidence of past life, fossils provide important information on the interactions between plants and environmental change. After ten years' survey, Professor Zhou Zhekun's group from Kunming Institute of Botany has discovered more than ten well preserved Neogene plant fossil sites in southwestern China which are important to understand past climate and response of...

Special microscope used to reveal hidden aspects of plant anatomy Why don't trees "bleed" to death when they are injured? Researchers from Virginia Tech, the Georg-August University of Gottingen, Germany, and the Jackson Laboratory of Bar Harbor, Maine, have discovered how "check valves" in wood cells control sap flow and protect trees when they are injured. The study, featured on the cover of the September issue of the American Journal of Botany, used a special microscope to reveal...

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...

humgruffin
  • A terrible or repulsive person.
Regarding the etymology of 'humgruffin,' the OED says (rather unhelpfully) that it's a 'made-up word.' We might guess that 'hum' comes from 'humbug' or possibly 'hum' meaning 'a disagreeable smell,' while 'gruffin' could be a combination of 'gruff' and 'griffin.'
