New water harvester device is capable of pulling liters of water out of the air using solar energy.
Too much rain when paired with prolonged high levels of humidity could promote the development of diseases in plants.
Drought-stricken crops won’t be saved by water storage alone as a new study finds that dry air actively pulls moisture from plants.
Some insect larvae can twitch and whip inside their cocoons in order to "jump" to shadier, or more favorable, environments. Researchers say this is a unique survival technique only seen in select wasp species.
Using the natural movements observed in plants, researchers believe they can make tiny robots move with the use of electricity.
Fireworks and bonfires may be a fun way to celebrate national holidays, but the smoke and other particles emitted into the atmosphere can reduce visibility by 25 percent. Visibility can be further reduced when humidity is high and particles absorb more moisture.
The ability of spiders to adapt to their local environment and humidity levels by altering the viscosity of their "web glue" may help scientists develop stronger adhesives.
