The bad news is that we need this in the first place.
Plants too experience internal nutrient traffic jams, and they’re fantastic at responding to them.
A new study overturns a classic textbook theory.
Anti-vaxxers finally have a natural option.
You could make tea at those temperatures.
When we said ‘Go green,’ this really wasn’t what we had in mind.
To be fair it works with other plants too, but I was shooting for a culinary title.
It’s basically a huge fridge for seeds — and it just got bigger.
Best enjoyed with a stone fork from a bark plate.
Hardy little things too.
Plants > Chemicals.
The next generation of monitor sensing could be half plant, half machine.
That’s not very nice.
A light scavenger can teach us a lot about energy efficiency.
You can’t take 10% out of something and still expect it to work.
A long-standing assumption that as the planet warms, the biosphere releases more CO2 in a positive feedback loop was confirmed by researchers.
Bees have a very keen sense of smell — they have to in order to survive. But air pollution is seriously plugging their ‘nostrils’.
Carrots are the richest source of vitamin A in the American diet, which is why you hear “they’re good for your eyes”. But did you know carrots were initially yellow and purple? Even further back, before humans domesticated carrots, the wild variety was white. Scientists know this by sequencing the DNA of the carrot, and a recent study deciphered its full genetic code. We now know what genes trigger the production of carrots’ most important nutrients, but also what teaking is required to improve the crops.
A forest’s trees capture carbon not only for themselves, but also engage in an active “trade” of sorts with their neighbors, a new study found. University of Basel botanists found that this process, conducted by symbiotic fungi in the forest’s soil, takes place even among trees of different species.
Spiders’ diets aren’t limited to juicy insect bits. They spice up their menus with vegetarian courses too, zoologists from the US and UK have found.
