Soils offer new hope as carbon sink

...ichar remains locked up in the soil for many years longer than, for example, carbon applied as compost, mulch or crop residue. "We broadly categorise carbon in the soil as being labile (liable to change quickly) or stable – depending on how quickly they break down and convert into carbon dioxide," he sai...

Cigarette smoke alters DNA in sperm, genetic damage could pass to offspring

...age is related to the duration of exposure, so the longer you smoke the more mutations accumulate and the more likely a potential effect may arise in the offspring,” Yauk said. According to Yauk, previous studies have shown that Ms6-hm and similar locations of non-coding DNA are sensitive to damage from...
