Newswise: An Urbanized Florida Means More Stormwater Ponds, Invasive Plants

An Urbanized Florida Means More Stormwater Ponds, Invasive Plants

University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences

In their first attempt to quantify stormwater ponds, researchers with the UF Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences found about 76,000 such ponds statewide. Many master-planned communities, especially in Florida, rely on stormwater ponds for flood control and water treatment. But the ponds also can be homes to many invasive plant species, which are costly to control.

Digging into diets: Researchers analyze artifacts to better understand ancient practices

McMaster University

New research from anthropologists at McMaster University and California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB), is shedding light on ancient dietary practices, the evolution of agricultural societies and ultimately, how plants have become an important element of the modern diet.

Natural ecosystems protect against climate change

University of Göttingen

The identification of natural carbon sinks and understanding how they work is critical if humans are to mitigate global climate change. Tropical coastal wetlands are considered important but, so far, there is little data to show the benefits.

New Function for Plant Enzyme Could Lead to Green Chemistry

Brookhaven National Laboratory

Scientists at Brookhaven National Laboratory have discovered a new function in a plant enzyme that could inspire the design of new chemical catalysts. The enzyme catalyzes, or initiates, one of the cornerstone chemical reactions needed to synthesize a wide array of organic molecules, including those found in lubricants, cosmetics, and those used as raw materials for making plastics.
