While extreme events like wildfires capture attention, moderate-severity disturbances, such as small fires or pest outbreaks, remain less understood. A study unveils the crucial role of complex tree canopies in aiding forest recovery after these disturbances. Unlike extreme events, moderate disturbances allow for canopy retention, offering resilience. The research highlights the importance of acknowledging and protecting these forest responses, crucial for maintaining biodiversity and ecosystem stability. Recognizing the nuances of disturbances helps formulate effective conservation strategies, promoting sustainable coexistence between forests and the challenges posed by a changing environment.
The study investigates the potential of aerosol-synthesized single-walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT) films for silicon nitride photonic circuits as a basis for developing integrated optics devices. Silicon nitride is a highly versatile material ideal for integrated photonics due to its wide bandgap, excellent mechanical properties, and compatibility with the CMOS fabrication process. It is characterized by […]
Microplastics are small particles that are < 5mm (0.2 inches) in diameter. They are of 2 types: primary and secondary. Primary microplastics are used in cosmetics, cleansers, etc. Secondary microplastics are obtained vy breaking down larger plastic items, such as water bottles. Microplastic contamination and its danger to ecosystems and human health have become a […]
In the era of scientific discoveries, researches are being conducted at regular intervals and stacked in records. Hunting for a specific scientific study out of all the gathered information would be a tedious process. Hence, the idea of having an index of bibliography or citations got transpired. This witnessed the genesis of Web of Science […]
