LUCA technologies confirms real-time methane generation

...r the potential of turning currently finite energy reserves into methane "farms" capable of long-term, sustainable energy generation. "The hydrocarbon resources available in the Monument Butte oilfield are very large, making the possibility of shifting from oil production to the ongoing farming of clean, nat...

Elephant seal pups suffer from ocean warming

... gain less body mass while pregnant and have fewer reserves to draw on during nursing. Nursing pups get all nourishment from their mothers; changes in ocean temperature therefore directly affect the weight, and the survival rate, of the pups. To assess the impact of temperature changes on food availability t...

Scientists discover global pattern of big fish diversity in open oceans

...laces to put them." Some have doubted that marine reserves on the high seas would work because the big fish travel such great distances, but the new Science paper shows there are indeed consistent areas in which to prioritize conservation efforts. Overlaying detailed information on animal movements and shift...

...roxyalkanoate (PHA) compounds, that may also boost reserves of nitrogen and carbon, which could be in short supply in the extreme cold. The organism also engineers cold-hardy versions of ordinary enzymes found in free-living bacteria, such as enzymes that break down organic matter. C. psychrerythraea possesse...

...y extracted from blood, but the lack of sufficient reserves to cover all worldwide needs has instigated researchers to look for new formulae to multiply this protein. One of the methods most used has been the obtention of HSA from yeasts and mammal cells. However, their high market-place costs have meant that...

The Amazon in 2050: Implementing the law could save a million square kilometers of rainforest

...e paving of highways to the requirement for forest reserves on private properties will influence the future of the world's largest tropical forest. Our model shows that several unique forest ecosystems and entire watersheds will be badly degraded over the next 45 years if we don't rapidly increase our capaci...

Protecting endangered species helps reduce poverty

... illegal and damaging activities in forested panda reserves declined when communities gained alternative sources of income, such as farming and animal husbandries supported by WWF. In Namibia, the creation of conservancies, where communities are jointly managing their wildlife resources, has resulted in bette...

Fish reared in the river had larger brains than either group of fish reared in tanks, but the relative size of the cerebellum compared to the rest of the brain was about the same as in fish reared in tanks with stones. ...

Possible brain hormone may unlock mystery of hibernation

The researchers earlier found that concentrations of "hibe...

'Scent of a woman' tells male redback spiders to find a mate

... rapidly, trading a smaller body size and less fat reserves against getting to virgin females sooner. The competition is tough -- you'll often find up to eight males on a female's web, says Andrade. The density of males is also critical -- in areas with many males, the researchers found that the males were sm...

A catalogue of proteins

Proteins have various functions in a cell, from transport to mechanical support. As enzymes, they catalyse all kinds of me...

Researchers develop flood-tolerant California rice
