Scientists increasingly have been linking global warming with plant and animal die-offs now happening at a rate comparable to some of Earth’s worst mass extinction events. Heat takes a toll in many different ways. Cold-blooded animals like fish and reptiles…
Our houses of the future may be made with bacteria that can regenerate, suck CO2 out of the air, and even glow on command.

(Imperial College London) Mediterranean-type climates face immediate drops in rainfall when greenhouse gases rise, but this could be interrupted quickly if emissions are cut.
Usually, it’s infants, individuals in old age, and immune-compromised people that are most vulnerable to new diseases. The coronavirus is no different, with one exception. For some mysterious reason, infants aren’t getting sick, and scientists are at a loss to…
(Frontiers) Researchers from the school of Geographical Sciences at Guangzhou University have revealed the stark decline of China’s intertidal wetlands by studying archives of satellite imaging data. The area of these wetlands reduced by 37.62% between the 1970s and 2015, placing these vulnerable yet valuable ecosystems and the species they support under increased pressure from anthropogenic development and future sea level rise.
(Virginia Institute of Marine Science) New research by a team from the Virginia Institute of Marine Science and University of Western Australia reveals that species of the seagrass genus Posidonia have evolved a remarkable adaptation for ocean survival: a winged seed whose shape harnesses the force of underwater currents to hold it on the seafloor for rooting.
(University of Tokyo) Experts have been unable to explain why cells from bacteria to humans leak essential chemicals necessary for growth into their environment. New mathematical models reveal that leaking metabolites — substances involved in the chemical processes to sustain life with production of complex molecules and energy — may provide cells both selfish and selfless benefits.
According to a recent report in Forbes, Tesla’s stock market value is already bigger than Ford and General Motors combined, and Elon Musk, whose company as of 2015 had already received nearly $5 billion in federal subsidies, now has a…
Scientists have developed a new way to undertake basic health checks of exotic wildlife using a digital camera, saving them the stress of an anesthetic.
