'Dead zone' area in Gulf could be increasing, researchers say

... "That means the stratification levels between the fresh river water and heavier salt water could results in increased hypoxia, which creates the dead zone." Hypoxia is a term for extremely low levels of oxygen concentrations in water. Hypoxia can result in fish kills and can severely impact other forms o...

Researchers feed tiny pills of RNA to planarians to identify genes essential for regeneration

...d in these studies, also called flatworms, live in fresh water and have a singular ability to regenerate. Chop one in half, and two new worms grow. Their ability to regenerate is so prolific that a tissue fragment only 1/279th of the worm's length can grow into a new planarian. Researchers know that planar...
