New study reveals a major cause of global warming - ordinary soot

... efforts to control biomass burning and reduce our reliance on soot-producing fuels, such as coal and diesel,`` he notes. According to Jacobson, well-meaning policies have been put into place based on the misguided assumption that diesel fuel is better for the environment than gasoline - simply because diesel...

Without bears and wolves to hunt them, Yellowstone moose have lost some spring in their step, study says

In predator-free areas, moose were six times less likely to recognize these carnivore cues than in Alaska, where similar exposure would frequently cause them to stop feeding or adopt an aggressive-defensive...

Finding a market for 'ecosystem services'

...the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers should reduce its reliance on dams and levees to control floods in favor of paying farmers and other landowners to set aside property in flood-prone areas. Other working groups evaluated alternate ways to create ecosystem markets and to develop tools that will aid scientists...

NYU biologist identifies gene that regulates how plant cells proliferate and organize to form root systems

...uch agronomic traits as tolerance for salinity and reliance on fertilizer. Because roots normally grow underground, it is very difficult to breed for roots that are best suited for a particular environment. The use of genetic engineering may provide a better means of addressing this problem. From an evoluti...

Novel antiviral drug concept targets number of human viruses
