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

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.

'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
