Scientists are not only detecting microplastics in the atmosphere but also investigating how they may play a role in cloud formation.
A process similar to that used to store human embryos is being used by scientists to save native Australian plants under threat from invasive myrtle rust.
Scientists say that Earth's vital signs have worsened beyond anything we have seen — and people with lung conditions are particularly at risk.
Scientists found that 71 of the 162 ice shelves surrounding Antarctica have reduced in volume over 25 years from 1997 to 2021, with a net release of 7.5 trillion tonnes of meltwater into the oceans.
UK researchers have brought clarity to the longstanding question of how starch granules form in the seeds of Triticeae crops — wheat, barley and rye.

Ozone substantially changes the size and scent of floral odour plumes given off by flowers, reducing honeybees' ability to recognise odours by up to 90%.
Young vegetables known as microgreens are reputed to be particularly good for health — now, researchers are trying to find out how microgreens compare to mature veggies.
Researchers in Japan have discovered the mechanisms involved in plant cell regeneration and how the plants create the correct type of tissue when damaged.
Researchers have found increasing emissions of several ozone-depleting chemicals, despite their production being banned for most uses under the Montreal Protocol.
Seismologists believe they have documented evidence of a distinct layer inside Earth — a solid 'metallic ball' that sits within the centre of the inner core.
The State of the Climate 2022 report shows an increase in extreme heat events, intense heavy rainfall, longer fire seasons and sea level rise across Australia.
The system can remove contaminants in as little as two weeks by using a super-efficient solar evaporation surface to rapidly draw water from the soil.
An international coalition of researchers has stated that the Earth's vital signs have reached "code red" and that "humanity is unequivocally facing a climate emergency".
While the negative impacts of climate change on coral reefs are well known, this research shows that they are actually worse than anticipated.
