  • How plants absorb pollutants

    The environmental concern is great when considering the role of toxic contaminants in the plant-soil relationship. Understanding plant’s absorption and accumulation of these contaminants from the soil would be incredibly beneficial. One highly carcinogenic contaminant commonly found in soil is called polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. They are the byproduct of the incomplete combustion of ...

  • Antarctic Ocean Losing Ability to Absorb Carbon Dioxide

    Norwich, UK - Recent climate change brought on by human activities has weakened one the Earth's natural defenses against global warming. Atmospheric carbon dioxide is not being absorbed by the Southern Ocean as quickly as it once was, an international research team has found. Scientists have observed the first evidence that the Southern Ocean’s ability to absorb the major greenhouse gas carbon ...

  • Forests absorb one third our fossil fuel emissions
