Predator-prey dynamics used to model cloud systems

Mathematical formulae that describe the population dynamics of prey animals such as gazelles and their predators have been used to model the relationship between cloud systems and rain. Documented in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the novel approach may help address the paucity of knowledge concerning cloud formation and the role that […]

Nano-Critters Found In Mine Sludge

Jill Banfield, a scientist at the University of California, Berkeley, has been poking around in disused mines for more than 10 years, studying the microbes that inhabit these dark environs. Now, together with co-researcher Brett Baker, Banfield has discovered three new nano-sized microbes living amidst the more commonplace bacteria of the mine’s interior. All three […]
