Rising temperature brought by climate change is slowly making the Antarctic Peninsula a greener place.
A new study showed that moss played a crucial role in creating stable oxygen-riched atmosphere that allows animals,. including humans, to live on Earth.
An international study suggested that ancient mosses might hold the answer to the age-old mystery of how oxygen filled the Earth’s atmosphere.
Climatologists didn't see this one coming. It looks like mosses, lichens, and blue-green algae are all major players in the Earth's complex and often-confusing carbon cycle. Now, new research has revealed how these organisms regularly release some of the most intense greenhouse gasses known to man, demanding more attention be pointed their way.
