An image captured by NASA's Landsat 8 satellite on July 2 revealed that the green sludge of algae bloom is now visible from space.
When choosing your chocolate fix, you might want to go for either cacao nibs or dark chocolate--for health reasons.
Researchers have documented how leafcutter ants process leaves into nutrients underground. The remarkable nimble ants rely on a division of labor to get food on the table and conserve energy, thus ensuring they remain healthy and strong – the better to suit the colony.
Researchers have noted that the removal of some dams has helped songbirds and other wildlife rebound faster than expected.
Red deer living across Europe prefer to graze on grasses and short shrubs, but when food sources are covered by feet of snow and ice, their stomachs shrink and their bodies take in nutrients more efficiently than in more plentiful summers.
Using nano-sized particles of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, researchers have found a way to increase the growth and antioxidant content of tomato plants. This may soften the impact population growth has on natural resources in the future.
After comparing urban fruits to their commercially grown counterparts, researchers have determined that the urban-grown produce is more nutrient-rich in calcium and iron and is free of lead and arsenic.
Animals' poop plays a key role in keeping the planet fertile. However, when large animals go extinct the natural cycling of nutrients from deep ocean waters to high mountainous areas is significantly reduced, researchers revealed in a new study.
A new study suggests that a nutrient-rich, balanced diet can boost coral resilience under thermal stress, which can be caused by climate change.
By studying both the beneficial nutrients and the harmful contaminants of fish collaboratively, Dartmouth researchers are able to better understand the pros and cons to eating seafood.
In addition to the raging wildfires, the Pacific Northwest lowlands are experiencing devastation in mountain pond habitats as a result of climate change. According to recent forecast models, this just may be new norm that amphibians have to get used to.
Coral reefs worldwide are taking a beating from global warming, and while new research shows that a certain species of invasive microbe may protect them, it comes at a cost.
Plants have been hailed as possible saviors of the planet as it continues to warm up, especially considering that they can absorb more harmful carbon dioxide than previously thought. However, now new research says soil nutrients may hinder this plan, keeping plants from slowing down climate change.
New research reveals that millions of tons of Saharan dust, which is actually rich in vital nutrients such as phosphorus, helps to fertilize the lush Amazon rainforest each year.
