UN review shows need to halt destructive fishing practice

... low potential for recovery, this is of particular concern for these stocks," the review said. The draft review called bottom trawling a particular concern, due to its tendency to over-fish both targeted and non-targeted species, and the damage it causes to vulnerable ecosystems that provide critical habit...

Tropical forest CO2 emissions tied to nutrient increases

...ntially more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, a concern to scientists monitoring global change, says a new University of Colorado at Boulder study. The study showed when either phosphorus or nitrogen -- both of which occur naturally in the rain forest soils -- were added to forest plots in Costa Rica, th...

Many cleaners, air fresheners may pose health risks when used indoors

...ears ago, when a handful of new studies raised the concern that consumer products may be contributing to indoor pollution levels in ways that were not fully understood, the ARB commissioned Nazaroff and his team to study the problem. Four years in the making, the team's 330-page study and report, "Indoor Ai...

Mosquito spray increases toxicity of pyrethroids in creek, study finds

...cted. "In this instance, it appeared the biggest concern was not the aquatic toxicity of the pyrethrin insecticide in the mosquito spray, but the fact that the non-toxic synergist actually synergized the 'wrong' thing - pyrethroid pesticides that were already in the creek sediments," said Weston. "This i...

Discovery may speed forest biotechnology

...ngs, he said. However, the level of regulation and concern about genetic engineering may prevent even this application. In this research, scientists studied the genes CO and FT that were first isolated from the annual plant Arabidopsis. The genes in that plant are responsible for the day-length regulation o...

Inflammation and drugs to control this activity studied in a variety of tumors sites

...s expected based on previous findings. "The first concern is, should patients with initial biopsies showing no malignancy but showing chronic inflammation be followed more closely and perhaps re-biopsied more frequently?" Gupta said. Gupta's group plans future studies that will be similar in design, but ha...

Scientists identify molecular structure of key viral protein

... viruses, which are classified as select agents of concern for biodefense. The pre-fusion structure of the F protein combined with the structure of the protein in its post-fusion state, which was determined and reported earlier in 2005 by this same research team, gives scientists a complete picture of how t...

Plant-derived vaccines safeguard against deadly plague

... tamed since the advent of antibiotics. But a new concern has emerged in recent years with respect to bioterrorism. "There have been discovered some resistant strains to antibiotics and that poses a concern, especially if plague would be used as a bioweapon," said Luca Santi, a research assistant professor...

Oops! Researchers publish new findings on the brain's response to costly mistakes

...esponse to making errors, with increased worry and concern about having done something wrong," he says. "We hope that this kind of research will help us get a handle on this condition and see which normal brain circuits have gone awry in people with OCD."

Soil-bound prions that cause CWD remain infectious

...des and demonstrated its pathogenesis. "Our first concern was to determine whether this organism was truly associated with his clinical syndrome," the team wrote. Despite ineffective neutrophil immune cells, the patient's immune system still tagged the bacterium as an invader. Researchers also exposed ...
