do not exonerate the fungus as the agent of mass declines, they can rule out the possibility that the fungus caused the decline, then vanished from the area, allowing frog populations to recover. Although it's possible that B. dendrobatidis did not...

are useful to land managers looking for new methods of temporarily neutralizing acid streams, Likens is quick to comment that, "Manually adding buffering agents to acidic streams will never solve the acid rain problem. At most, it is a way to buy tim...

that may give important new clues concerning this pathogenic organism's behavior in the wild, and a step towards understanding how it spreads. The paper, written by Arizona State University biologist Richard Retallick, Hamish Ian McCallum from the ...
How roots control plant shoots

help show how roots also send chemical signals that control whether or not leaves grow. How leaves grow is a crucial matter given that leafy plants supply food for humans and other creatures, produce oxygen for all animals to breathe, influence globa...

show that, interestingly, the basic receptor function of hOR17-4 seems to be identical in both human sperm and olfactory neurons. In light of their findings, the authors propose a model in which a single receptor protein helps perform diverse chemose...

show that a delay, within the limits of this study, from the time of diagnosis to the start of treatment with external-beam radiation does not alter ultimate clinical outcome," Andrews stated. "Another important finding here is that the use of hormo...
