Scientists give long-term perspective for unsettled British summers
Scientists studying the regional climate have discovered the reason why British summers are getting wetter.
Cactus scientists offer insights to solve future global agricultural challenges
Researchers have provided a new roadmap for tackling future agricultural production issues by using solutions that involve crassulacean acid metabolism (CAM), a specialized type of photosynthesis that enhances the efficiency ...
How the presence of conservation researchers affects wildlife
In a study that compared three sites within the Dja Conservation Complex in Cameroon, Africa, investigators found that the presence of a conservation research project acts as a deterrent to chimpanzee and gorilla poachers, ...
Soil erosion contributes significantly to global carbon emissions
Soil erosion that occurs in rainy seasons leads to a significant amount of carbon being released into the atmosphere, a new study shows.
How an animal's biochemistry may support aggressive behavior
Researchers who paired Siamese fighting fish in mock fights found that winning fish could supply more energy to their muscles during fights than losing fish.
Researchers enhance nonlinear effects of optical metasurfaces
Optical metasurfaces are thin-layer subwavelength-patterned structures that interact strongly with light. Offering a wealth of useful functionalities, they are a logical extension of the field of metamaterials towards their ...
How harmful male genitalia can impact reproduction in other species
Male Callosobruchus chinensis seed beetles have spines on their genitalia, which increase their fertilization success but injure a female's reproductive tract—especially a female of a related species called Callosobruchus ...
A long-lasting obstacle of solid oxide fuel cells has been overcome
One of the major drawbacks of carbon-fueled battery cells is the intrinsic presence of CO2, which impedes CO oxidation and, therefore, lowers the energy density of the cell. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, researchers at ...
Free-standing monolayers made from protein-bound gold nanoparticles
Free-standing nanoparticle films are of great interest for technical applications, such as the development of nanoelectronic devices. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, Korean scientists have introduced very flexible and stable ...
British invasion of the harlequin ladybird threatens other species
The harlequin ladybird, officially known as Harmonia axyridis, was widely introduced across continental Europe as a way to limit the population of small sap-sucking insects called aphids.
