New mathematical model to explain how a massive bloom of phytoplankton is growing under the Arctic sea ice.
Leaf-inspired prototype reactor could capture the energy from sunlight and use it to produce drugs sustainably and cheaply anywhere.
Researchers from Princeton University have discovered a way to improve the light harvesting rates of the cryptophyte algae Chroomonas mesostigmatica: quantum coherence.
A team of scientists from the University of Illinois has devised a revolutionary way of boosting crop yield of tobacco plants by 20 percent by adjusting their genetic makeup.
The Begonia pavonina produces shiny blue leaves not for aesthetic appeal but for energy harvesting through a unique photosynthesic process.
Scientists discovered a microbe that could provide a model for how “alien life” might survive in uninhabitable planets throughout the universe.
Scientists from Forschungszentrum Juelich have successfully created the first complete and compact artificial photosynthesis facility that could be used in practical applications outside the lab.
Scientists discovered a way to turn carbon dioxide into usable energy source through the use of sunlight.
Researchers from Harvard University has successfully developed an artificial photosynthesis system that can convert solar energy into biomass more efficiently than the fastest-growing plants.
New study shows that trees goes into resting position during the night which corresponds to human behavior of sleep.
Ever dream of charging your phone in a more eco-friendly way? Now, that dream becomes a reality through Bioo Lite, a new technology that lets you charge your smartphone through photosynthesis from any common house plant.
It has been known that high levels of carbon dioxide in the air causes health and environmental hazards, but a new study shows that high concentration of Carbon dioxide might actually be helping plant cycles, resulting to a greener earth.
Strange green flatworms, also known as "mint-sauce worms," collect together in shallow waters along much of Europe's Atlantic coast, forming what researchers call a "superorganism." It is believed that this social behavior helps protect the animals and aids in their photosynthetic feeding.
Corals release their eggs and sperm based on photosynthetic cues provided by moonlight. However, when artificial light pollution interferes with natural light, corals fail to spawn. This could have serious impacts on threatened reefs.
