Once upon a time, the seasons in Gale Crater probably felt like Iceland. But more than 3 billion years ago, there was no one to focus on. The old Martian crater is the focus of a study by scientists at Rice University that compared data from the Curiosity Rover to locations on Earth where similar […]
Forestry organizations in England and Wales estimate that gray squirrels will cost the sector at least £ 1.1 billion over the next 40 years due to timber damage, carbon loss and tree replacement.
A new rose bred by Harkness Roses and launched for the Captain Tom Foundation that will hopefully sell 100,000 over the next three years is generating unprecedented interest
August 2020 set new record high temperatures (SST) in the northwestern Pacific and on the coasts of Japan. A new study by the National Institute for Environmental Studies (NIES) found that this warming is impossible without human-made climate changes. The northwest Pacific ocean surface gets seasonally warm in August each year. However, it was unprecedentedly […]
Johnson of Whixley's centenary is 2021 and a lot has changed for the kindergarten business in the last 100 years, but what has changed and what remains the same?
At the current rate of warming, the Earth's ability to absorb nearly a third of man-made carbon emissions from plants could be halved within the next two decades, according to a new study in Advances in science by researchers from Northern Arizona University, Woodwell Climate Research Center, and the University of Waikato, New Zealand. Using […]
Curtin University researchers used ancient crystals from eroded rock found in river sediments in Greenland to successfully test the theory that portions of the ancient crust of the earth acted as "seeds" from which later generations of crusts grew. The results not only advance understanding of the Earth's crust production over time, its structure and […]
Field research under the direction of Dr. Eleanor Scerri, head of the Pan-African Evolution research group at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History in Germany and Dr. Khady Niang from Cheikh Anta Diop University in Senegal has documented the youngest known occurrence of the Mesolithic. This repertoire of stone flake methods […]
Over 40 years of monitoring, an endangered bunchgrass prairie became hotter, drier and more susceptible to fire annually — but dramatic seasonal changes (not annual climate trends) seem to be driving the biggest changes in plant production, composition, and summer senescence. Gary Belovsky and Jennifer Slade of The University of Notre Dame, Indiana, present these […]
Paleontologists at the University of Bonn (Germany) have succeeded in reconstructing the chewing motion of an early mammal that lived almost 150 million years ago. This showed that its teeth worked extremely precisely and surprisingly efficiently. Yet it is possible that this very aspect turned out to be a disadvantage in the course of evolution. […]
