We should all swap at least half of the meat, dairy products and eggs we eat with cereals, lentils, beans and other plant-based foods to help reduce nitrogen pollution, lower greenhouse gas emissions and improve our health.
A new report quantifies for the first time how much our food choices affect pollutant nitrogen emissions, climate change and land-use across Europe.
A decades-long debate over how nitrogen is removed from the ocean may now be settled by new findings from researchers at Princeton University and their collaborators at the University of Washington.
Extensive, explosive volcanic eruptions may disrupt a crucial aspect of the global nitrogen cycle, say researchers who have investigated ash deposits on the ocean floor.
(Phys.org) —Increased nitrogen-use efficiency of plants and an associated reduced need for nitrogen-based fertilisers may be a step closer following University of Adelaide research on legumes.
The Phalaenopsis orchid, also known as the moth orchid, is the most important pot flower in terms of market value in the world's major floriculture markets. Because nitrogen significantly affects the growth and flowering ...
Researchers at the UPM are developing a methodology to estimate atmospheric emissions from road transport that will help to make environmental decisions.
Why were Neanderthals replaced by anatomically modern humans around 40,000 years ago? One popular hypothesis states that a broader dietary spectrum of modern humans gave them a competitive advantage on Neanderthals. Geochemical ...
Seabird guano emits more ammonia into the atmosphere in warmer and wetter climates, scientists have found.
A drought two years ago left dairy farmers with a feed shortage and a lingering question: Can the off-season generate a second harvest? Results from a large collaborative project led by the Cornell Nutrient Management Spear ...
