Model estimates subsidence risks across the globe

An international team of researchers has created a model that can be used to make estimates about the degree of subsidence risk for different parts of the world. In their paper published in the journal Science, the group ...

Using water fleas, researchers investigate adaptive evolution

Researchers from The University of Texas at Arlington resurrected the preserved eggs of a shrimp-like crustacean to examine long-standing questions about adaptive evolution, reporting the results in the journal Proceedings ...

Visualization of mechanical waves in a liquid medium

The effect of ultrasound on the liquid phase has been visualized using dynamic electron microscopy. The use of the effect of standing mechanical waves arising in the liquid phase under the action of an external ultrasound ...

Giant aquatic bacterium is a master of adaptation

The largest freshwater bacterium, Achromatium oxaliferum, is highly flexible in its requirements, as researchers led by the Leibniz Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries (IGB) have now discovered: It lives ...
