Pesticides choke pathway for nature to produce nitrogen for crops

...th the plants to convert atmospheric nitrogen into ammonia that, then, is used as fertilizer by the plants. "Agrichemicals are blocking the host plant's phytochemical recruitment signal," said the study's lead author, Jennifer E. Fox, a postdoctoral researcher in the Center for Ecology and Evolutionary Bi...

Scientists: As rainfall changes, tropical plants may acclimate

...plants revealed that they switched from nitrate to ammonia "abruptly, and in unison" once the rainfall reached a certain level. "There's an abrupt change halfway through the rainfall gradient, and they all switch to this other form for their nutrition," Schuur said. That's a surprise partly because of ...

Nature's process for nitrogen fixation caught in action

Nitrogen gas is converted to ammonia fertilizer by a chemical process that involves hig... intermediate stages between nitrogen gas (N2) and ammonia (NH3) that require adding electrons and protons." In order to trap the process at a specific stag...

UCR environmental scientists propose chemical solution to cleaning California's Salton Sea

...of low dissolved oxygen, high hydrogen sulfide and ammonia concentrations, high temperatures and an increasing level of salinity. Due to noxious odors emanating from the Salton Sea, a 32 kilometer-long State Recreation Area on the northeast shore remains under-used. "The Salton Sea at one time attracted mo...

Sea slug mixes chemical defense before firing at predators

A team of researchers with the Atlanta-based Center for Behavioral Neuroscience (CBN) has found that this secretion is produced from normally inert chemicals stored separately in two glands. The discovery, published in the...

'Acid rain' and forest mass: Another perspective

... of herds, have given rise to the concentration of ammonia emissions in certain zones. This compound, deposited close to the sources of emission, is able to react with the acidic ions deposited at the same time. Subsequently, certain bacteria are capable of oxidising the compound, thus forming nitrate and li...

New book expands biological classifications to account for 'alien' life
