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.
UC Riverside scientists discover auxin sensing and signaling complex on plant cell surface that explains why leaf epidermal cells have jigsaw puzzle-piece shapes
The Shock Wave Power Reactor cavitation technology was featured in an article related to rotating reactor in the Journal of Chemical Engineering Research and Design. (PRWEB)
Cavitation Technologies, Inc. announced today that the Company's U.S.
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.
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.
Cavitation, an engineering term most commonly associated with maritime issues like the erosion of ship or submarine propellers, is also a concept pertinent in the production of bubbles in a bottle of beer after a sudden impact.
Trees, and more specifically, the leaves that adorn them, having predated humans foray into scientific learning, should harbor no mysteries at this point. However, nature continues to surprise us.
How some plant species evolved super-efficient photosynthesis had been a mystery. Now, scientists have identified what steps led to that change.
Understanding the impact of environmental change on plant traits is an important issue in evolutionary biology.
The International Journal of Biometeorology is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published by Springer Science+Business Media on behalf of the International Society of Biometeorology. The journal publishes original research papers, review articles, and short communications on studies examining the interactions between living organisms and factors of the natural and artificial physical environment. It publishes articles in the following fields: Earth and environmental science, life...
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 ParÃ¡ 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...
