Genetic behavior reveals cause of death in poplars essential to ecosystems, industry

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Scientists studying a valuable, but vulnerable, species of poplar have identified the genetic mechanism responsible for the species’ inability to resist a pervasive and deadly disease. Their finding could lead to more successful hybrid poplar varieties for increased biofuels and forestry production and protect native trees against infection.

Superflares From Young Red Dwarf Stars Imperil Planets

Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI)

Violent outbursts of seething gas from young red dwarf stars may make conditions uninhabitable on the planets that orbit them. Scientists found that flares from the youngest red dwarfs they surveyed are much more energetic than when the stars are older. They also detected one of the most intense stellar flares ever observed in ultraviolet light — more energetic than the most powerful flare from our Sun ever recorded.
