How algae could save plants from themselves

Algae may hold the key to feeding the world's burgeoning population. Don't worry; no one is going to make you eat them. But because they are more efficient…

Biofeedback system designed to control photosynthetic lighting

Controlled environment agriculture is rapidly becoming an important part of the global food system. For example, there has been much interest in the potential…

Seeing the big picture in photosynthetic light harvesting

To understand what goes on inside a beehive you can't just study the activity of a single bee. Likewise, to understand the photosynthetic light-harvesting that…

International rice researchers take on world hunger – Maize could help to improve rice yield

Rice is the staple food for more than half of the world’s population. Thus, it is one of the most important crops in the world. Rice uses the C3 photosynthetic…

Nanobionics Supercharge Photosynthesis

A new process has been developed for spontaneously incorporating and assembling carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and oxygen scavenging nanoparticles into chloroplasts,…

Major advance in artificial photosynthesis poses win/win for the environment

A potentially game-changing breakthrough in artificial photosynthesis has been achieved with the development of a system that can capture carbon dioxide…

Phytoplankton as Carbon Pumps

By some estimates, almost half of the world’s organic carbon is fixed by marine organisms called phytoplankton – single-celled photosynthetic organisms that…

Deep within spinach leaves, vibrations enhance efficiency of photosynthesis

The findings could potentially help engineers make more efficient solar cells and energy storage systems. They also inject new evidence into an ongoing…

UF/IFAS Research Findings Shed Light on Seagrass Needs

Loss of seagrass means fish, crabs and other animals lose their homes and manatees and sea turtles lose a source of food. Nutrients, such as phosphorous, may…
