Charles Muntz, the villain of the Pixar movie Up, owns a pack of dogs who wear special collars that allow the dogs to speak English with humans. Though your dog isn’t likely to learn that trick anytime soon, a group of researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a device that help bridge the communication gap between dogs and humans. David Rober Continue reading New Device Helps Facilitate Communication Between Humans and Dogs
Trees in temperate forests share carbon through their root systems, with up to 40 percent of the element in finer roots coming from their neighbors, a new study published in Sciencerevealed. The finding may lead to better ways to protect forests or bolster the storage of soil carbon.
Living in a forest can force trees to fight for nutrients and sunlight with often larger neighbors. However, University of Basel’s <a href="https://botanik.unibas.ch/en/staff/profile/person/klein Continue reading Trees Operate A Below-Ground Carbon Trading Network
Funded by NASAs Astrobiology Institute, a team of researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology has retraced the development of the ribosome back almost four billion years, unlocking the chronology of its evolution from its primordial form to its present structure. The ribosome provides a site for protein synthesis in all living cells, and is therefore crucial for the existence of life. By unravelling the secrets of its formation, the new research has shed light on the pre-conditions for life, provi Continue reading Scientists Map Four Billion Years Of Ribosomal Evolution
