Traditional floodplain forest restoration may decrease bird diversity
There may be a problem with lower Mississippi floodplain forests that have been replanted with common oaks. While the idea was that nature would do the rest, some types of trees may not recover on their own -- and new research suggests that this lower tree diversity may lead to lower bird diversity. (2002-04-01)

Growth benefits of zinc in children with sickle cell disease

Researchers seek ways to reduce children's injury risk
Pediatricians can provide enhanced safety counseling to parents of young children, but parents, especially low income urban families, need additional services to help them follow the advice. This study found that the combination of pediatric counseling and a place where parents could go to purchase safety products at a reduced cost and get additional information was successful in increasing safety practices. A visit to each home by a community health worker offered no benefits. (2002-01-14)

Researchers: Autumn color is nature's sunscreen
University of Wisconsin-Madison scientists have a new theory about why autumn leaves turn scarlet and why the hues are more vibrant some years than others. They say that the pigments -- called anthocyanins -- are meant to act like sunscreen. (2001-09-28)

Turning biomass waste into auto fuel
Cornell researchers are using enzymes to break down solid biomass waste into a renewable energy form. They say there is sufficient biomass waste available to supply all of the organic chemicals that are consumed annually in the United States and still have enough left over to convert to auto fuel. (2000-03-28)

Athletes take note: Not all energy bars built the same
Energy bars may not always give endurance athletes the boost they expect. A study of two popular energy bars and found that one of the bars didn't give the moderate increase in blood sugar known to enhance performance in endurance athletes. Instead, its effect was much like a candy bar. (2000-03-20)

Diversity of trees in forests may be caused by soil pathogens, IU biologists find
Microbes in the soil beneath a parent tree can kill most of the tree's seedlings in that particular area. This clears the way for unaffected seeds of other species to take root and flourish near that tree, explaining the diversity of trees in forests, according to a study by Indiana University biologists. (2000-03-19)

Anti-IgE therapy improves symptoms and lowers steroid use in people with asthma
Some people with allergic asthma can experience improvement in their symptoms even as they reduce or completely eliminate the need for oral or inhaled corticosteroids by using anti- IgE, according to today's issue of the New England Journal of Medicine. (1999-12-22)

Trees Need Calcium Too
Calcium levels in forest soils have decreased at locations in 10 states in the eastern United States, according to a new report by the U.S. Geological Survey, Department of the Interior. This trend is a cause for concern because calcium is necessary for neutralizing acid rain and is an essential nutrient for tree growth. (1999-03-29)

Fructose Consumption May Accelerate Aging: Skin's Elasticity And Softness May Be Affected
Animal studies have shown that excessive consumption of fructose -- a commonly used sweetener -- results in age- related alterations as measured in skin and bone collagen. Its effect on skin is to increase collagen crosslinking which reduces skin's elasticity and softness, which may, in turn, lead to wrinkles. (1998-11-24)

Why Is Africa So High?
Scientists at the Carnegie Institution report that a large, hot upwelling originating at the core-mantle boundary is responsible for the anomalously high elevation of southern Africa--the so-called African Superswell. (1998-09-16)

Biotech Foods Ready For Primetime, Experts Say
The fact is that if in the past year you've topped a sandwich with cheese, gobbled down a bowl of cereal, or guzzled a soft drink, chances are that you've eaten foods from genetically modified crops. (1998-09-10)
