Not that I’ve waited to have it in the meanwhile. So, what I’ve done was simply put the “brownContinue reading “Germination chemistry is all around”

How Forests “handle” Carbon Dioxide

In our century, the twenty-first one, there are many contribution directed to restore and protect forests and in a simple image of natural cycles trees are a main part in the ecosystem balanced system. They are part of the photosynthesis process, producing hydrocarbons (which fuel they growth) and over the course of their lives theyContinue reading “How Forests “handle” Carbon Dioxide”

Biological reproduction and Planck’s constant

Associate the phenomenon of biological reproduction to the laws of Planck’s constant? Reproduction in living beings born from random changes, so called mutations, that allowed you to create differences from one generation to another. Starting from the statistics that show the rate of mutations, such as the famous “laws” of Mendel on heredity of characters,Continue reading “Biological reproduction and Planck’s constant”

The Uniqueness of Fungi

Mushrooms are not only a tasty vegetable that we can associate with good food and folk festivals…They are inter-actors able to create lasting connections (and we talk about thousands of years) with the environment they encounter along its path of growth and development.
Specifically, the article focuses on the interaction with the arboreal and fungal species; allowed by their particular adaptation.
