The benefits of masting are well-documented, but the costs are underexplored. Here, we found that plant traits promoting long lifespan are associated with stronger masting, supporting the prediction that masting is more common in long-lived species where costs of skipped reproduction are reduced.
HALD, a human aging and longevity knowledge graph for precision gerontology and geroscience analyses
We presented HALD, a text mining-based human aging and longevity dataset of the biomedical knowledge graph from all published literature related to human aging and longevity in PubMed, which uses multiple state-of-the-art natural language processing (NLP) techniques.
Warming-induced vapor pressure deficit suppression of vegetation growth diminished in northern peatlands
Growing vapor pressure deficit inhibits vegetation growth. Chen et al. reported that this inhibition diminished in northern peatlands, as plant growth was not constrained by water even in the presence of a warming-induced water pressure deficit.
We invite you to imagine a world over 400 million years ago, a time when Life on Earth was vastly different from what we know today. The Rhynie Chert, an iconic geological site in Scotland, offers a captivating glimpse into this distant past, holding secrets of an ancient terrestrial environment.
Relationship between Gravitational field, irreversibility, Bohr’s Hydrogen Model and Schrödinger’s equation
Since there are no absolutely isolated systems, we made the crucial relationship between gravitational field, irreversibility, Bohr’s hydrogen model and Schrödinger’s equation to unify different natural laws.
To inoculate or not to inoculate? Predicting crop yield increases after microbiome engineering with mycorrhizal fungi
Microbiome engineering has large potential for sustainable agriculture. Here we demonstrate that field inoculation with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi can promote crop yield and inoculations success can be predicted using soil microbiome indicators.
We show that Cntnap2 KO rats, a preclinical model for neurodevelopmental disorder, have intact startle scaling, but disrupted sound scaling in response to a prepulse, confirming that there are two independent scaling processes causing prepulse inhibition of startle.
