  • Social spiders

The social spiders studied by Jonthan Pruitt of UC Santa Barbara make considerable sacrifices for their offspring. They have a remarkable suicidal co-operative care system, where adults liquefy their own bodies to feed the groups’ young. However it was not their breeding that Pruitt discussed, but rather the differing personalities of individuals within the spider groups.

  • Gold nanoparticles

To increase the accuracy of medical screening and reduce the incidence of false positives, UCSB chemistry and biochemistry professors designed a biomedical assay that eliminates the readout of these faulty results.

Many complexities of the carbon sequestration process remain poorly understood, despite years of research and the significant impact of this process on global climate.

 

Now, three scientists have proposed a new approach to better understand the role of soil organic matter in long-term storage and its response to changes in global climate and atmospheric chemistry. The trio, including Julie Jastrow of the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory, published their ideas in the August issue of Nature Microbiology.
