Tropical forest carbon absorption may hinge on an odd couple

A unique housing arrangement between a specific group of tree species and a carbo-loading bacteria may determine how well tropical forests can absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, according to a Princeton University-based ...

Another milestone in hybrid artificial photosynthesis

A team of researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)'s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory developing a bioinorganic hybrid approach to artificial photosynthesis have achieved another milestone. Having generated ...

How a soil microbe could rev up artificial photosynthesis

Plants rely on a process called carbon fixation—turning carbon dioxide from the air into carbon-rich biomolecules—for their very existence. That's the whole point of photosynthesis, and a cornerstone of the vast interlocking ...
