A new plant-bacterial symbiotic mechanism promising for crop applications

... thanks to its ability to live in association with soil bacteria of the Rhizobium, genus, capable of fixing nitrogen from the air. When these bacteria come into contact with their host plant, they trigger in the roots the formation and development of organs, termed nodules, where they continue to live. Th...

Dirty snow may warm Arctic as much as greenhouse gases

Potato wart eyed as risk to potato production

... Spores released from infected plants can make soil unsuitable for potato production for decades.

...iation of polluted soils or in very windy, limited soil moisture situations. From an environmental viewpoint, the researchers said, dwarfed trees such as this are unlikely to be any kind of threat to spread, because they would compete very poorly with normal or wild trees. In virtually all tree species...

Genome of Clostridium botulinum reveals the background to world's deadliest toxin

... wrath of C. botulinum, explains Dr Sebaihia: "The soil can be a harsh environment and food can be scarce. To see off the competition, C. botulinum comes with its own ‘antibiotic’ — a chemical called boticin that kills competing bacteria." Genome sequences can tell us a lot about the biology of the org...

Madagascan tropical forests return thanks to better management and well-defined ownership

"Our results can maybe explain why that method didn't work for all the invasive species," Funk said. Current techniques for fighting inv...

Scientists: As rainfall changes, tropical plants may acclimate

... The scientists analyzed nitrogen isotopes in the soil and leaf samples of four plant species at each site. They learned that drier soils contained more nitrogen in the form of nitrate, while wetter soils contained more nitrogen in the form of ammonia. Isotopic analysis of the plants revealed that they s...
