For more than 100 years, biochar, a carbon-rich, charcoal-like substance made from oxygen-deprived plant or other organic matter, has both delighted and puzzled scientists. As a soil additive, biochar can store carbon and ...
Brainstorming sessions between a food chemist and a hydrologist at South Dakota State University have produced an innovative, potentially money-saving idea that will put nutrients back in the field.
Excess nitrogen gives an advantage to early season plants in Midwestern prairies, leading to further changes in prairie ecosystems, according to a recently published study from an Iowa State University scientist.
Just in time for Halloween, a new study reveals that pumpkin-colored zombies may be running rampant through your local salt marsh.
A Victoria University of Wellington researcher has developed a tool that Ravensdown will use to help New Zealand farmers lower their environmental footprints and better manage nutrient loss into waterways.
Nutrient availability in model wetlands helps regulate microbial metabolism and soil carbon cycling rates
Studying microbial communities in San Joaquin Delta rice fields, researchers linked microbial metabolism and nutrient availability to soil carbon cycling rates.
A group of international researchers have returned from a highly successful expedition to the Labrador Sea and coastal Greenland, led by scientists at the University of Bristol.
A virus which infects ocean plankton can reprogramme cells and change the way they absorb nutrients - potentially changing how carbon is stored in the ocean, new research shows.
Invasive mussels and less nutrients from tributaries have altered the Lake Michigan ecosystem, making it more conducive to the stocking of lake trout and steelhead than Chinook salmon, according to a recent U.S. Geological ...
Major changes in agricultural practices will be required to offset increases in nutrient losses due to climate change, according to research published by a Lancaster University-led team.
