Results of in situ experiments on natural microbial communities suggest that biological crusts can protect soils from erosion, but their protective role could be compromised under predicted future climate scenarios.
Research on the habitat ranges of microorganisms in Yellowstone’s hot springs reveals an overlap between cyanobacteria and algae.
Restoring formerly drained peat wetlands can mitigate climate-warming emissions but the reward takes patience.
As temperatures rise, tropical forests will become more stressed and photosynthesize less.
In ultramafic, reducing environments, forming microbial proteins can actually release energy.
Una nueva investigación encuentra que Actinobacteria en cuevas de lava fijan carbón y sobreviven independientemente de aportes superficiales, ofreciendo una nueva perspectiva en la investigación de la vida fuera de la Tierra.
As river ice cover decreases, the physical and biological changes to river ecosystems vary with the watershed characteristics and river size.
Researchers look to carbon isotopes and cell-level wood anatomy to understand how seismic-induced changes in water availability affect tree growth.
Researchers use a packer system to study the microbial communities living in waters sampled from deep, uncontaminated peridotite aquifers.
Using new methods, researchers can estimate how much methane is released each day from reservoirs—an important step in estimating global methane emissions.
