Environmental lessons from tsunami as world's coastal population doubles

...ir resilience. Similarly, if communities are more resilient they are going to be able to learn from past experience and to deal with disasters better and to recover quickly. Dr Neil Adger co author of the report said: "If we protect our coastal environment, it will protect us in times of disaster. This now a...

Researchers use dirt to stay one step ahead of antibiotic resistance

...n environment of antibiotic production, incredibly resilient bacteria must develop diverse ways to survive or resist the toxic antimicrobial compounds produced by their neighbors," said Wright. "Their coping tactics may be able to give us a glimpse into the future of clinical resistance to antibiotics." "Th...

UW-Madison engineers squeeze secrets from proteins

...t destroy the folded structure of the protein. How resilient the protein is to these assaults is what we often call stability," de Pablo says. "Detergents like the ones you use to wash your clothes have enzymes that break the fat in stains. When you put you clothes in hot water in your washing machine, you wan...

Protein 'nanosprings' most resilient found in nature

...n found to constitute one of the most powerful and resilient molecular "springs" in nature, researchers have discovered. The engineers and biologists from Duke University and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute say their discovery could lead to a new understanding of mechanical processes within the living cell...

Researchers uncover protection mechanism of radiation-resistant bacterium

...nting to the mechanism through which the extremely resilient bacterium Deinococcus radiodurans protects itself from high doses of ionizing radiation (IR). The results of the recent study, titled "Protein Oxidation Implicated as the Primary Determinant of Bacterial Radioresistance" were published in the March 2...

Corals that can fight global warming may one day help fragile reefs

...tenacity -- they not only are somewhat temperature resilient but can also boost their cellular and enzymatic defenses to fight lethal microorganisms as temperatures rise. These abilities may someday be harnessed to help protect other fragile coral reefs, Harvell said. The head of the Coral Disease Working Gr...

Palau's coral reefs show differential habitat recovery following the 1998 bleaching event

... elsewhere. "It appears that coral reefs are very resilient and can bounce back magnificently if subjected to good management practices and 10 years or so of pristine conditions," says Robert van Woesik, one of the authors of a new study showing that reefs off Palau, Micronesia, have recovered surprisingly we...

Traumas like Sept. 11 make brains more reactive to fear

...rding to a new brain study, even people who seemed resilient but were close to the World Trade Center when the twin towers toppled on Sept. 11, 2001, have brains that are more reactive to emotional stimuli than those who were more than 200 miles away. That is the finding of a new Cornell study that excluded p...
