Geologists Simulate Soil Conditions to Help Grow Plants on Mars

Humankind's next giant step may be onto Mars. But before those missions can begin, scientists need to make scores of breakthrough advances, including learning how to grow crops on the red ...
New research shows that when vampire bats feel sick, they socially distance themselves from groupmates in their roost -- no public health ...
When temperatures go below a critical limit, sleeping lizards lose their grip and fall out of trees. But when researchers collected the scaled survivors of a record cold ...

Microbial Diversity Below Seafloor Is as Rich as on Earth's Surface

For the first time, researchers have mapped the biological diversity of marine sediment, one of Earth's largest global biomes. The research team discovered that microbial diversity in the dark, ...

Discovery of Microbes With Mixed Membranes Sheds New Light on Early Evolution of Life

Current research suggests that more complex life-forms, including humans, evolved from a symbiosis event between bacteria and another single-celled organism known as archaea. However, evidence of a ...

Mediterranean and Tropical Biodiversity Most Vulnerable to Human Pressures

Animals in tropical and Mediterranean areas are the most sensitive to climate change and land use pressures, finds a new ...

Animals' Magnetic 'Sixth' Sense May Come from Bacteria

A researcher may help answer why some animals have a magnetic 'sixth' sense, such as sea turtles' ability to return to the beach where they were born. The researchers proposes that the ...

Scientists Unlock Crops' Power to Resist Floods

Foundational science has discovered the molecular structure of plant enzymes that could be manipulated to create flood-resistant crops, vital as weather events become more extreme due to global ...

Two Major Microbial Groups Living Deep Underground Can't Breathe

A new scientific study has revealed unique life strategies of two major groups of microbes that live below Earth's surface. These groups, originally thought to rely on symbiotic relationships ...

Researchers to Investigate Wind Power Effects on Bats in the Baltic Sea Region

Despite the increasing numbers of wind turbines, their impacts on the environment are poorly known. A new study focuses on wind turbines in the Baltic Sea region and their impact on bats and their ...

Nutrients Make Coral Bleaching Worse

Nutrients can aggravate the already negative effects of climate change on corals to trigger mass coral bleaching. A study suggests ecosystem managers can reduce the impacts of coral bleaching by ...

Why Doesn't Ebola Cause Disease in Bats, as It Does in People?

A new study uncovered new information on why the Ebola virus can live within bats without causing them harm, while the same virus wreaks deadly havoc to ...

Oxygen Therapy Harms Lung Microbiome in Mice

A new mouse study hints that oxygen therapy may have unintended consequences via an unexpected source -- the ...

Discovery Transforms Understanding of Hydrogen Depletion at the Seafloor

Results of a new study contradict the assumption that hydrogen depletions at the seafloor are caused by microbiological communities. Researchers found that these shifts in chemistry are driven by ...

Deep-Sea Misconceptions Cause Underestimation of Seabed-Mining Impacts

A new publication on the impacts of deep-seabed mining by 13 prominent deep-sea biologists seeks to dispel scientific misconceptions that have led to miscalculations of the likely effects of ...

Oldest Enzyme in Cellular Respiration Isolated

Researchers have found what is perhaps the oldest enzyme in cellular respiration. They have been able to isolate the extremely fragile 'Rnf' protein complex from the heat-loving bacterium ...

A New Tool for Modeling the Human Gut Microbiome

Engineers have designed a device that replicates the lining of the colon. With the device, they can grow human colon cells along with oxygen-intolerant bacteria that normally live in the human ...

How Growth Rates Influence the Fitness of Bacteria

Bacteria are survival artists: When they get nutrition, they multiply rapidly, albeit they can also survive periods of hunger. But, when they grow too quickly, their ability to survive is hampered. ...

Nanostructures Modeled on Moth Eyes Effective for Anti-Icing

Researchers have been working for decades on improving the anti-icing performance of functional surfaces and new work investigates a unique nanostructure, modeled on moth eyes, that has anti-icing ...

How a Gooey Slime Helps Bacteria Survive

Researchers found that the bacterium C. perfringens modulates the structure of its biofilm at different temperatures by regulating the expression of the novel extracellular protein BsaA. They showed ...

Reduced Coral Reef Fish Biodiversity Under Temperatures That Mirror Climate Predictions

Biologists recently studied cryptobenthic reef fishes in the Arabian Gulf and the Sea of Oman and found that the more thermally extreme coral reef habitat in the Arabian Gulf adversely impacted the ...

Scientists Expose Fascinating 'Compartments' in Bacteria

A new review article casts light on organelles, the internal compartments in bacterial cells that house and support functions essential for their survival and ...

Metal-Breathing Bacteria Could Transform Electronics, Biosensors, and More

When the Shewanella oneidensis bacterium 'breathes' in certain metal and sulfur compounds anaerobically, the way an aerobic organism would process oxygen, it produces materials that could ...

Scientists Record Rapid Carbon Loss from Warming Peatlands

Scientists have demonstrated a direct relationship between climate warming and carbon loss in a peatland ecosystem. Their study provides a glimpse of potential futures where significant stores of ...
