So-called endemic species — plants and animals found exclusively in a specific area — will be hit hardest in a warming world.
The tech is still new, but it could be used to build "plant-based robots" that handle fragile objects when rigid, robotic arms can't.
At least 100 million plants, animals are internationally trafficked each year and the trade is said to be worth between USD 4-20 billion per year.
Once biologists suspect a documented species’ extinction, the challenge then shifts to proving whether it has disappeared forever or just disappeared from sight
Increased nutrients in the sea lead to excessive growth of plants, which ultimately leads to less oxygen as the plants die and decompose in a process known as eutrophication.
Plants better source of protein than animals, can reduce risk of cardiovascular disease, studies show
Researchers have suggested that people increase their intake of plant protein as it is a healthier option than animal protein.
Studying the millipede revealed that “a rapid radiative evolution” helped these organisms to come out of aquatic ecosystems and start living in “complex forest grade communities” in just 40 million years.
In spite of many viruses existing in animal hosts, it is rare for spillovers to happen since many factors need to align at the right time.
The Crew Dragon took a range of science experiments to the ISS to be worked upon by the residing astronauts.
Discoveries of new species is the outcome of perseverance, years of fieldwork & long periods of looking at museum records.
High times at the ISS: Agri-tech company to send cannabis, coffee to space to study microgravity's effects
After a month in space, they will be analysed and studied for gene mutation and reaction to microgravity.
The key finding from the study is to start looking at nature and learn from it and respect it.
Mammals had lived in the large shadow of the dinosaurs, never getting bigger than a small dog until the mass extinction.
Antarctic Ocean is the fourth-largest ocean and accounts for more than one-third of heat gain in the past 50 years.
Mesodinium chamaeleon, a strange green creature found in Denmark that lives at the bottom of the sea, is causing researchers to rethink traditional ways of classifying living organisms.
The report reads like a charge sheet against the most destructive creatures in History: HUMANS
From Kempegowda to Tipu Sultan, to modern botanical heroes like Gustav Krumbiegel and SG Neginhal, Bengaluru's identity as a Garden City has been dedicately preserved and developed by those who planted and saved trees — both Indian and alien
Desalination plants pump out 142 million cubic meters (5 billion cubic feet) of salty brine every day.
The plant can trap hazardous compounds like benzene that are too small for air filters to capture.
The right balance needs to be struck between ex-situ & in-situ methods of conservation: Experts.
