Scientists unlock crops' power to resist floods

Enzymes that control a plant's response to lower oxygen levels could be manipulated to make vital crops resistant to the impacts of flooding triggered by climate change, new research shows.

Nanomaterials based strategies for treatment of hypoxic tumor

Hypoxia is a typical characteristic of most tumors, owing to the fast consumption of oxygen by tumor tissue over the supply through malformed and abnormal tumor vasculature. Hypoxia in tumor tissue promotes the probability ...

Low-oxygen zones in Danish seas double in a year

The area of Danish seas affected by low oxygen levels—a problem triggered by climate change—has doubled in the space of a year, according to a university report published Friday.

Life in the shallows becomes a trap for baby sharks

Scientists can now explain how baby reef sharks tolerate living in the sometimes-extreme environments of their nurseries—but, they also say these habitats face an uncertain future which may leave newborn sharks 'trapped'.

Energy storage using oxygen to boost battery performance

Researchers have presented a novel electrode material for advanced energy storage device that is directly charged with oxygen from the air. Professor Jeung Ku Kang's team synthesized and preserved the sub-nanometric particles ...
