Finding hidden invaders in a Hawaiian rain forest
Novel techniques from a high-altitude aircraft, have detected two species of invading plants that are changing the ecology of rain forest near the Kilauea Volcano in the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. The study, led by Dr. Gregory Asner of the Carnegie Institution, found that the native dominant tree 'ohia' (Metrosideros polymorpha) has been taken over by the invading Canary Islands tree, Myrica faya. They also identified areas where Myrica invasion is in its early stages.

Hydrogen and methane sustain unusual life at sea floor's 'Lost City'
The hydrothermal vents at the ocean bottom were miles from any location scientists could have imagined. One massive seafloor vent was 18 stories tall. All were creamy white and gray, suggesting a very different composition than the hydrothermal vent systems that have been studied since the 1970s.

Temperature inside collapsing bubble four times that of sun
Using a technique employed by astronomers to determine stellar surface temperatures, chemists at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have measured the temperature inside a single, acoustically driven collapsing bubble. Their results seem out of this world.

One year after groundbreaking, desert research center takes shape on the Israeli-Jordanian border
While ethnic conflict in the Middle East continues to dominate the headlines, a unique collaboration between Arab and Israeli scientists is quietly taking shape along the border between Jordan and Israel. Launched just one year ago, the Bridging the Rift (BTR) project now includes some 40 researchers from Israel, Jordan and the United States who have come together to establish the first scientific institute jointly operated by Israel and one of its Arab neighbors.

Chemicals in apples could reduce the risk of breast cancer, Cornell study in rats suggests
An apple a day can help keep breast cancer away, says a new Cornell study. Tumor incidence was reduced by 17, 39 and 44 percent and the number of tumors was reduced by up to 61 percent in rats fed the equivalent of one, three or six apples a day, respectively.
