Researchers demonstrate way to control tree height

...t is needed, such as in bioremediation 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...

Alien plants attack using 'resource conservation' as weapon, researchers say

...awaii-a forested area with limited light, volcanic soils with low nutrients and a desert. They compared 19 invaders with 19 closely related indigenous plants-for example, an invasive raspberry versus a native raspberry. Using an electronic device that clamped onto the leaves of the plants, the scientists c...

Researchers develop way to calculate speed of bacterial sex

...ch things as transport of cells in porous media of soils and aquifers," explained Massoudieh. "It also can be used for ‘extrapolative?modeling to predict rates of gene transfer in certain cases, mainly environmental science scenarios, but also with relevance to some medical scenarios." ...

Bacteria could steady buildings against earthquakes

...ock. When a major earthquake strikes, deep, sandy soils can turn to liquid, with disastrous consequences for buildings sitting on them. Currently, civil engineers can inject chemicals into the soil to bind loose grains together. But these epoxy chemicals may have toxic effects on soil and water, said Jaso...

Microfossils unravel climate history of tropical Africa

...ory is more difficult than for the oceans, because soils on the continent do not form a continuous archive but are often eroded. The researchers developed an entirely new proxy for the annual mean air temperature on land, based on molecules from the cell membrane of soil inhabiting bacteria. They analysed ...

New UD technology removes viruses from drinking water

...ion, involved testing virus transport potential in soils collected from different regions across the United States. Jin's group found that the soils high in iron and aluminum oxides removed viruses much more efficiently than those that didn't contai...

From hot springs to rice farms, scientists reveal new insights into the secret lives of archaea

Plants' role in global warming re-examined

... our simulations, more carbon stored in plants and soils corresponds to less carbon released to the atmosphere in response to climate change, and a weaker positive feedback between carbon and climate and a weaker amplification of additional warming," the authors write. The paper concludes by saying, "Ther...

Gut reaction: Researchers define the colon's genome

...spects the human gut is at least as complex as our soils or seas. With the evidence at hand, the researchers have described greater diversity in the human gut than researchers have reported for samples of acid mine drainage. These microbes are busy, too. The new study shows that resident microbes in the c...

Species unique to tidal marshes face threats

...advantage because it matches the dark color of the soils often found in tidal marshes. Why endemic tidal marsh species seem to be largely restricted to North America--which has 24 of the worldwide total of 25--is not clear. Although it could reflect differing taxonomic practices in different countries, it ...

Metal homeostasis research in plants will lead to nutrient-rich food and higher yielding crops

Researchers discover way to transport environmental arsenic to plant leaves in new clean-up strategy
