DNA evidence suggests 3 types of elephants roam Africa

...t elephants in the dense vegetation, we don't have solid census data from many populations, including some of the largest ones," explains Eggert. "Only a quarter to a third of African elephants are forest elephants, so there are only about 120,000 to 150,000 of them. They live in a habitat that is rapidly ...

The Chamorros knew of the plant's toxicity as well. Although they ate part of the cycad in the form of flour in to...

Normal gene control increases chances human stem cells will be safe

... researchers have what is believed to be the first solid evidence that genes in human pluripotent stem cells and their progeny work normally. The focus of the new study, conducted in the lab of Andrew Feinberg, M.D., was whether Hopkins-developed human embryonic germ cells and their more specialized "daugh...

Large brains not required? Third and smallest skull of 'first Eurasians' reported in Science

Along with the hominid fossils, the Science authors found remains of ancient species of rhinoceros, deer, wolf, horse, and saber-toothe...

Efficient plastic nuggets key to agricultural plastic waste disposal

...tional approach is to convert the various film and solid plastics into a plastic nugget that can be burned with coal in coal fired boilers, refuse-derived fuel burners and even cement kilns. The process can mix plastic types, because it does not melt the plastic. Only the outer portion of the nugget is f...
