Hotter Temperatures Extend Growing Season for Peatland Plants

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

A study in Nature revealed that turning up the heat accelerates spring greening in vegetation and delays fall color change. The research team measured plant greenness over three years at the SPRUCE study, a unique ecosystem-scale experiment operated by DOE’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

Baby Sea Snails Ride Waves into Shallower Waters, Study Suggests

Rutgers University-New Brunswick

The warming ocean may cause the larvae of bottom-dwelling snails to hatch earlier in the spring, when waves are larger, potentially impacting their ability to survive and serve as food for other sea creatures. A Rutgers University–New Brunswick study sheds new light on the sensory organs the snail larvae use to feel – and perhaps even hear – whether the water is turbulent or wavy, and improve their odds of being carried to a good habitat where they can settle down as adults.

Chemistry Research ‘Rocks’ New Data about Ancient Life

University of California San Diego

Sulfur isotopes can serve as tracers of atmospheric oxygen, and new data collected from the present-day atmosphere in China by an international team of researchers, led by the University of California San Diego, indicate remarkable similarity to the isotopic footprint found in ancient rocks. This opens up new interpretations of the Archean Period’s sulfur isotope sedimentary signature—a proxy for the origins and evolution of atmospheric oxygen and early life on Earth.
