Ever wondered if you could see through the body of a living organism and observe the dynamic interplay between cells and nanoparticles injected into the bloodstream? This is now possible as the use of transgenic zebrafish embryos now offers a unique opportunity for intravital microscopy at imaging resolutions unrivalled by existing mammalian models.
A global research project has demonstrated that climate change entails a higher risk of freezing temperatures late in the spring. This can damage forests in Europe and Asia, where plants are not accustomed to this kind of fluctuation in the temperature and therefore start to blossom and grow leaves as soon as it is warm enough. In North America, the trees are more accustomed to spring frost and are therefore only slowly grow foliage during the spring.
Areas of the planet home to one-third of humans will become as hot as the hottest parts of the Sahara within 50 years, unless greenhouse gas emissions fall, according to research by an international team of scientists with participation from Aarhus University published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences this week. The rapid heating would mean that 3.5 billion people would live outside the climate ‘niche’ in which humans have thrived for 6,000 years.
The Earth’s core is not as isolated from the rest of the globe as previously believed. An international research group headed by Aarhus University has discovered that tiny amounts of iron from the core 2,900 km beneath us are seeping into the mantle and all the way up to volcanic islands on the Earth's crust.
