Even undisturbed peatlands might release rather than trap carbon dioxide, depending on seasonal rainfall patterns.
Thanks to its morphology, fibrous nanosilica would allow for better carbon capture capacity, kinetics and recyclability.
This more accurate and detailed simulation of carbon as it is injected into underground rocks could help to improve carbon capture and storage methods.
Palms have evolved to have a high net carbon gain efficiency in response to shaded environments in the lower strata of the rainforest, scientists say.
Targeting the protein AtPAP2 to both the mitochondria and chloroplasts makes plants grow faster and produce 38 to 57 percent more seeds.
