Researchers challenge the Conservation Reserve Program status quo to mitigate fossil fuels

Amid population expansion and severe climate conditions threatening agricultural productivity, sustainable food production is a national priority. Simultaneously, advances in bioenergy agriculture are necessary to move our energy sector away from fossil fuels.

Spintronics: New production method makes crystalline microstructures universally usable

New storage and information technology requires new higher performance materials. One of these materials is yttrium iron garnet, which has special magnetic properties. Thanks to a new process, it can now be transferred to any material. Developed by physicists, the...

Agile underwater glider could quietly survey the seas

Autonomous underwater vehicles have become versatile tools for exploring the seas. But they can be disruptive to the environment or have trouble traveling through confined spaces. Researchers are studying an alternative: highly maneuverable, low-cost underwater...

Kittens could hold key to understanding deadly diarrheal disease in children

Kittens could be the model for understanding infectious, sometimes deadly, diarrheal disease in both animals and children.

Like wine, environmental conditions impact flavor of whiskey, study finds

Flavor differences in whiskey can be discerned based solely on the environment in which the barley used to make the whiskey is grown, a new study found.

DNA extracted from modern, ancient and fossil tropical shells

The next time you eat seafood, think about the long-term effects. Will consistently eating the biggest fish or the biggest conch, mean that only the smaller individuals will have a chance to reproduce?

How single celled algae rotate as they swim towards the light

Scientists have made a pivotal breakthrough in the quest to understand how single-cell green algae are able to keep track of the light as they swim.

Changes in writing style provide clues to group identity

Small changes to people's writing style can reveal which social group they 'belong to' at a given moment, new research shows.

Evidence that Earth’s first cells could have made specialized compartments

New research provides evidence that the "protocells" that formed around 3.8 billion years ago, before bacteria and single-celled organisms, could have had specialized bubble-like compartments that formed spontaneously, encapsulated small molecules, and formed...

Recycle anaesthetics to reduce carbon emission of healthcare, study concludes

New research has highlighted the value of recycling general anaesthetic used in routine operations.
