A microbial geneticist at the University of Maryland has proposed that early life may have tinged the Earth purple.
Scientists are using bacteria to create new clean energy solutions.
The secret to trees' longevity isn't competition, but cooperation.
Temperatures directly correlate to CO2 levels In Antarctica, but not in the tropics or Northern Hemisphere. Here's why:
Scientists are engineering a method for turning solar energy into fuel.
Plankton aren't just the foundation of the ocean's food chain; they're also really important for getting carbon dioxide out of the air.
Most of us take our oxygen-rich atmosphere for granted. Once upon a time, though, Earth's air was very different.
Long used in courtship rituals, sweet smelling flowers developed their fragrances to attract insects.
While humans make attempts to control carbon dioxide levels that contribute to global warming, is it possible that trees have already taken on the task?
Can sleeping in a room full of plants can be dangerous? A common myth states that, at night, plants compete with people for oxygen!
