Ninety years of data shows global warming impacts on foundation of marine ecosystems

Phytoplankton are microscopic plants that underpin ocean productivity and provide 50% of the world's oxygen via photosynthesis. An investigation of a 90 year data set from a coastal station offshore from Sydney provides a unique opportunity to better predict the impact of global warming on future ocean phytoplankton communities, on biodiversity and ultimately fisheries production.

Beetle larvae think with a brain 'under construction'

In human brains, hundreds of billions of nerve cells are interconnected in the most complicated way. This is no different for insects, although their brains 'only' have up to one million nerve cells. To a large extent, the brain develops in the embryo, but in many animals it is completed only after birth. Biologists from Göttingen University found that beetle larvae start using their brains, although still 'under construction'. Results were published in PLOS Biology.

Light-modulated graphene-organic heterojunction transistors realizing photocurrent logic changes

The optical intermodulation and graphene removing doping modulation proposed in this paper provide a reference for the future fabrication of graphene-based all-optical input photodetectors and photoelectric modulation devices, as well as positive and negative logic photocurrents modulated by utilizing critical value of effective exciton length. This logical reversal light modulation photoresponse opens up a new path for the direction of photocurrent and polarity modulation in the future.
