Plants respond similarly to signals from friends, enemies

...special structures called nodules, where they turn atmospheric nitrogen into usable nitrogen for the plant and, in return, take some of the plant's energy to survive. A similar relationship appeared when Weerasinghe studied the signals between plants and nematodes, even though the nematode provides no benefit to...

Poplar trees redirect resources in response to simulated attack

...esist microbial attack after plants have soaked up atmospheric carbon dioxide, therefore countering the effects of fossil-fuel combustion. This is a strategy of carbon sequestration -- the provision of long-term storage of carbon so that the buildup of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere will be reduced. IMAGES/CA...

Plant hemoglobins: Oxygen handlers critical for nitrogen fixation

...accommodate bacteria, called rhizobia, that reduce atmospheric nitrogen to ammonia, which is subsequently used by the plant for growth and colonization of nitrogen-poor soils. Symbiotic nitrogen fixation is important for sustainable agriculture and contributes millions of tons of reduced nitrogen to crops and pa...

New research indicates a 'troubled' greenhouse is brewing

...event. "This is known to have been a time of high atmospheric carbon dioxide from studies of the breathing pores in fossil leaves," he explains. "At that time, Wyoming warmed from a mean annual temperature of some 55 degrees to a summer-like 65 degrees Fahrenheit. Rainfall in Utah jumped from 16 inches per year...

Scientists journey to southern Africa to unravel the secret world of elephant communication

...arom and his co-workers proposed that, under ideal atmospheric conditions, low-frequency calls could travel 6 miles or more through the air. Now in private industry, Larom has long been intrigued by O'Connell-Rodwell's work. "This is important basic research," he says. "Like all creatures, humans perceive with ...

Hybrid grass may prove to be valuable fuel source

...nces. That balance means there is no net effect on atmospheric carbon dioxide levels, which is not the case with fossil fuels, she said. Miscanthus also is a very efficient fuel, because the energy ratio of input to output is less than 0.2, Heaton said. In contrast, the ratios exceed 0.8 for ethanol and biodies...
