Why don't trees "bleed" to death when they are injured?
Tropical forests that are timber harvested or cleared for agriculture can help reduce their own recovery time by capturing natural nitrogen fertilizer and carbon dioxide more quickly when making a comeback.
The vision for a new branch of medicine, inspired by the ancient field that began with peg legs and hand hooks, commanded the spotlight in a major address by its pioneer here today at the 246th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS), the world's largest scientific society.
According to a recent find, prehistoric chefs in modern day Denmark and Germany used mustard garlic as a food spice at least 6,000 years ago.
A ring of protein and pigments, half synthetic and half natural, can be used to quickly prototype light-harvesting antennas that absorb more sunlight than fully natural ones
HDI debuts new mission statement to reflect role as multi-industry international company. Rome, GA (PRWEB) August 05, 2013 Hydro Dynamics, Inc.
Plant scientists from the University of Nottingham in the United Kingdom have announced a revolutionary new system that allows plants to take nitrogen from the atmosphere and potentially eliminate the need for chemical fertilizers that can pollute the ecosystem where they are used.
Trees are becoming more efficient at using water in response to higher atmospheric carbon dioxide levels, according to new research published Wednesday in the journal Nature.
At night, plants must utilize nutrient reserves efficiently until dawn and new research from the John Innes Centre in England has found that some plants use basic math to survive without sunlight for photosynthesis.
The efficient conversion of sunlight into useful energy is one of the challenges which stand in the way of meeting the world's increasing energy demand in a clean, sustainable way without relying on fossil fuels.
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...
