(Phys.org) -- A study by ETH Zurich researchers demonstrates that the arsenic bacterium postulated as a spectacular new life form by NASA in 2010 cannot do without phosphorus. This demonstrates the continuing ...
Two new scientific papers have disproved a controversial claim made by NASA-funded scientists in 2010 that a new form of bacterial life had been discovered that could thrive on arsenic.
(Phys.org) -- Reducing phosphorus in dairy diets doesnt change a cows productivity, but it does affect the environmental impact that cow might have, according to a Texas AgriLife Extension Service specialist.
Cooperating with fungi didn't just help the earliest plants spread across a barren, rocky landscape; it also played a decisive role in the rise of more complex plants with roots and leaves that make up most of today's flora.
When the soil holds not enough phosphorus: Scientists describe new transporter in cells of plant roots
Plants cannot survive without phosphorus. It forms the backbone of many crucial molecules (such as DNA) and is a key player in energy transfer reactions. Low availability of phosphorus is a major environmental stress for ...
