Essential mangrove forest threatened by cryptic ecological degradation

...time such practices drastically affect the coastal zone by introducing an excess of fresh water. The consequences range from adverse shifts in the composition of mangrove tree species to disrupted ethnobiological relationships, lagoon fisheries, and many additional functions provided by mangroves. The au...

Dead zone area in Gulf could be increasing, researchers say

...ate University and NASA recently surveyed the dead zone in the northern Gulf of Mexico and their findings ...ected this time of year. That could mean the dead zone area could be more severe in 2005 and perhaps cover an even larger area than in previous years, says...

Plant Sacrifices Cells to Fight Invaders

...death (PCD). Plants use PCD to create a protective zone of dead cells around the infection site to prevent the invading pathogen from spreading. But how the plants keep from killing themselves after they turn on the cell-suicide process was a mystery. Now, in the May 20 issue of the journal Cell, Yale Un...

Oceans more vulnerable to agricultural runoff than previously thought, study finds

...ey multiply. The result is an oxygen-depleted dead zone at the bottom of the sea where few creatures can survive. A massive dead zone appears every summer in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Louisiana and Texas. Scientists believe ...

Brain May Be Less Plastic Than Hoped

...y made baseline measurements of the cortical quiet zone two to three hours after the laser surgery and compared them to new readings taken every few weeks for up to seven and a half months. “If the visual cortex of the monkeys did reorganize, it would happen as they were behaving normally in their cages ...

Rabies spread speeds up

...mal was detected - 11 kilometers beyond the buffer zone - in northeastern Ohio. By modelling the spread of past outbreaks, the authors had already shown that local transmission was significantly reduced when townships were separated by geographical barriers. The authors incorporated the likely effect of O...

The synapse is a shotgun

... which all the vesicles are released at the active zone -- that's taken for granted now." The function of shotgun neurotransmitter release is unknown, said Sejnowski. "There's just nothing solid on our radar screen right now," he said. "There is speculation that ectopic release represents some sort of sp...

Envisat and ERS-2 reveal hidden side of Hurricane Rita

...basically a large, powerful storm centred around a zone of extreme low pressure. Strong low-level surface winds and bands of intense precipitation combine strong updrafts and outflows of moist air at higher altitudes, with energy released as rainy thunderstorms. Envisat carries both optical and radar in...

How cell suicide protects plants from infection

...o protect themselves from viruses, plants create a zone of dead cells around an infection site that prevents the infection from spreading. Savithramma Dinesh-Kumar, associate professor of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology at Yale and his colleagues discovered how the plants keep from killing t...

New understanding of jet lag

...elers could adjust much more quickly to rapid time zone changes. Most people require about two-and-a-half days to adjust to a six-hour flight from Europe to the United States, and even longer after an eastbound trans-Atlantic flight. The study also has implications for ways to treat shift workers - health...

Picky female frogs drive evolution of new species in less than 8,000 years

... As a comparison, they looked at a second contact zone on the border between north and south, where frogs were not isolated from either lineage. "Reinforcement does not appear to occur at the more 'classic' contact between northern and southern lineages, and we speculate that this may be due to gene flo...

Emerald Spectre haunts Ontario's ash forests

The infected zone now covers all of Ontario's Essex County and extends to include the entire lower peninsula in Michigan and much of northern Indiana and Ohio. "It's not just an Ontario or Canadian problem. Even if we're able to contain it here, it could come across...

Chernobyl: The true scale of the accident

Roughly every two weeks, Breshears and his colleagues measured soil moisture on the 100-by-150 meter plot (about three times the size of a football field). Temperature and precipitation data were recorded at a nearby site. In 1992, the team ...
