Irish deer have died simply because they were not much was to migrate from the onslaught of cold weather and nothing to eat. But prehistoric goat M. Balearicus was much more tenacious. Business strategist usually is spot on. Ancient goats for many years lived in an almost empty island, adapted for the rigors of an unusual way, turning into some kind of reptile. Analysis of the bones of goats, the scientists found, showed that they could change their metabolism almost at will. Some M. balearicus change the speed of growth and metabolism of as needed from season to season and during the ‘hard times’, such as drought.
With such, the researchers note, they are first encountered in mammals. Scientists have learned bacteria convert carbon dioxide into fuel Scientists still managed to get a new kind of bacteria that were able to quite efficiently produce complex organic compound – isobutyraldehyde. That isobutyraldehyde, from which possible future production of various chemicals, many scientists believe a promising high-energy hydrocarbon fuel in the future. Previously, all attempts of scientists to force the bacteria to process waste and other hazardous substances into biofuels were unsuccessful. Bacteria are too inefficiently produced gases. Scientists have recently obtained a new type of bacteria produces isobutyraldehyde in 10 times more efficient than previously obtained and produce hydrogen is 100 times more efficient than ethanol.
A source component for the production of micro-organisms useful product is the greenhouse gas CO2. Thus, another step in the development of technologies for alternative energy sources based on biofuels. Based on pumpkin and zucchini scientists create the most useful vegetables future Biologists believe that the wide spectrum of carotenoids in pumpkin and zucchini provides an excellent way for genetic improvement of vegetables. It is based on pumpkin and zucchini, you can create new vegetables with improved nutritional value and rich in antioxidants. As it turned out, vegetables, orange-red, and yellow-orange flowers contain 9 times more carotenoids than other vegetables. A richest in carotenoids have been just the pumpkin and squash these colors. Therefore, these vegetables in the future will form the basis of the most useful new kinds of vegetables. Carotenoids play an important role in human health and are the main sources of provitamin A and antioxidants. Pumpkin and squash contain a lot of dietary carotenoids, particularly lutein, alpha-carotene and beta-carotene. Scientists hope that if the breeders and biologists will be able to the basis of zucchini and pumpkin bring a new vegetable, it will become one of the most useful for human body because of the rich heritage of useful properties of squash and pumpkins. Photofact week: wildlife in the heart of Europe and the horrific pictures Pollution in China last week we offered you a glimpse into the world of wildlife in the heart of Europe, enjoy the beauty of untouched nature and its amazing inhabitants. And then we have shown what can happen to nature, if it mercilessly exploit and pollute the environment – look at the horrific pictures of pollution in China and think.
