Artificial Light Affects Plant Pollination Even During the Daytime

Streetlights alter the number of flower visits by insects not just at night, but also during the daytime. Artificial light at night thus indirectly affects the entire plant-pollinator community, with…

Rice Plant Resists Arsenic

The agricultural cultivation of the staple food of rice harbours the risk of possible contamination with arsenic that can reach the grains following uptake by the roots. In their investigation…

Optimally Promoting Biodiversity in Agricultural Landscapes

In an exceptionally broad and elaborate study, biologists from the University of Würzburg investigated the biodiversity of flowering fields planted as part of agri-environmental schemes. Due to modern agriculture, biodiversity…
