Augustana University Professor’s Research Leads to Surprising Mating Decision in Butterfly Species

Augustana University, South Dakota

The males of one species of butterfly are more attracted to females that are active, not necessarily what they look like, according to a recent research conducted at Augustana University.The paper, “Behaviour before beauty: Signal weighting during mate selection in the butterfly Papilio polytes,” found that males of the species noticed the activity levels of potential female mates, not their markings.

Using novel method, ecologists find thawing permafrost is releasing carbon into atmosphere unchecked

Northern Arizona University

Northern Arizona University professors César Plaza, Christina Schädel and Ted Schuur used a new method to track soil carbon losses in thawing permafrost in the Arctic. The results paint an even bleaker picture of the effects of climate change than they previously thought.

Scientists seek solar clues in a material with split nature

Argonne National Laboratory

In a recent study, researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory performed a novel type of experiment that reveals new insights concerning how energy moves in methylammonium lead iodide, a promising perovskite crystal material that has attracted substantial interest from solar researchers.

New Unprinting Method Can Help Recycle Paper and Curb Environmental Costs

Rutgers University-New Brunswick

Imagine if your printer had an “unprint” button that used pulses of light to remove toner, curbing environmental impacts compared with conventional paper recycling. A Rutgers-led team has created a new way to unprint paper that, unlike laser-based methods, can work with the standard, coated paper used in home and office printers. The new method uses pulses of light from a xenon lamp, and can erase black, blue, red and green toners without damaging the paper, according to a study in the Journal of Cleaner Production.

Plants' Oil-Production Accelerator Also Activates the Brakes

Brookhaven National Laboratory

UPTON, NY—Scientists studying plant biochemistry at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory recently made a surprising discovery: They found that a protein that turns on oil synthesis also activates a protein that puts the brakes on the same process. In a paper just published in the journal Plant Physiology, they describe how this seemingly paradoxical system keeps oil precursors perfectly balanced to meet plants’ needs.
