Scientists have discovered a surprising similarity between rivers and humans: both release more carbon dioxide when they work hard.
As adults, we're often nostalgic for our childhood. A time when life seemed so much simpler. When we were free from the hassles of money, pressures of work and responsibilities of family and care.
Earth's oceans and land cover are doing us a favor. As people burn fossil fuels and clear forests, only half of the carbon dioxide released stays in the atmosphere, warming and altering Earth's climate. The other half is ...
Humans are changing relationships between species in fundamental ways.
The carbon cycle is central to life on Earth. It describes how carbon flows between living organisms, and the ocean, atmosphere and rock of our planet, and is driven by the energy from our sun.
Two phases of the cell cycle of human embryonic stem cells have been shown, for the first time, to actively employ pathways that maintain pluripotency—the potential to develop into almost any type of cell in the body.
Scientists busy poring over more than a year of data from NASA's Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO-2) mission are seeing patterns emerge as they seek answers to the science questions that drive the mission.
Researchers warn all species are important, and conservation efforts should be based on the need for biological diversity and not on how useful individual species are to people.
In coniferous forests across the Northern Hemisphere, woody biomass production does not occur at the same time or rate as changes in tree stem size. This phenomenon presented in this month's issue of Nature Plants was demonstrated ...
The outer Solar System has enough mysteries and potential discoveries to keep scientists busy for decades. Case in point, Uranus and it's system of moons. Since the beginning of the Space Age, only one space probe has ever ...
