Tree biomass is the same in tropic or temperate climes

...sults seen for living tree communities extend into deep evolutionary history." To learn if biomass differences exist between tropical and temperate areas, the scientists used forest data collected by the late Alwyn Gentry, a noted biologist who died in a plane crash in Ecuador in 1993.

Saline solution a serious threat to wetlands

... Since the water table is saline, taking off those deep rooted plants allows the saline water to rise to the surface, and we now have salinised and unproductive lands." The drains are intended to solve this problem by carrying the surface water into the Coorong but, if they do, they will carry it into the...

Researchers pinpoint how tubeworm babies are dispersed to colonize new vent sites

...h the exception of hydrothermal vents, most of the deep ocean is only a few degrees above freezing, Marsh explains. Tubeworm larvae mustwithstand these cold temperatures as they are dispersed by the currents, hopefully to a home in warmer water near a vent site. The scientists found that tubeworm larva...
