Plants respond similarly to signals from friends, enemies

...lief, the root-knot nematode signals plants from a distance and therefore does not need to attach itself to the plant to elicit a response. When the researchers studied L. japonicus plants missing the receptors that receive signals from other organisms ?certain genes in the plant were modified to accomplish ...

The secret lives of whales

...ometers away, which is a very reasonable dispersal distance for the animals that live on them,?says Smith. In the North Atlantic, where only 10% of historic populations of the great whales are estimated to still survive, Smith speculates that substantial species extinction may have occurred in the whale fall...

Scientists discover unique microbe in California's largest lake

Revolutionary nanotechnology illuminates brain cells at work

...w versions of GFP. The cyan is excited and, if the distance between the colored proteins changes, more or less energy is transferred to the yellow protein. In this study, the cyan and yellow proteins behave as if they move away from one another when the sensor recognizes glutamate. Thus, there is more cyan an...
