In a development beneficial for both industry and environment, UC Santa Barbara researchers have created a high-quality coating for organic electronics that promises to decrease processing time as well as energy requirements.
Biologists uncover molecular mechanism that regulates animal's ability to sense the rate of temperature change
In classic experiments on frogs, scientists found that the amphibians' urge to escape from dangerously hot water decreased significantly when the water temperature rose very gradually.
Solving today's environmental problems involves vast amounts of data, which have to be gathered, stored, retrieved, analyzed and—increasingly—cited in academic journals. That last step, however, presents a problem.

Researchers show that when it comes to climate change and stream flow, plants play an important role
In California's Sierra Nevada mountains, as more precipitation falls in the form of rain rather than snow, and the snowpack melts earlier in spring, it's important for water managers to know when and how much water will be ...
Conservation ecologists lay out a set of guidelines for how de-extinction can be made more ecologically responsible
Can the woolly mammoth be brought back from the dead? Scientists say it's only a matter of time.
