New book explores why the discovery of sex in plants took so long
Sexual reproduction in animals has been recognized since ancient times and used in the breeding of domesticated animals for more than 10,000 years. For most of that time, however, there was no intentional breeding of crop plants because people didn't think plants had sex. A new book, 'Flora Unveiled,' offers a deep history of perceptions about plant gender and sexuality, from the Paleolithic to the 19th century.

UMD researchers share optimistic vision for Paris Climate Agreement
Scientists at the University of Maryland have developed an empirical model of global climate, which they have used to comprehensively analyze the Paris Climate Agreement. In a new book titled Paris Climate Agreement: Beacon of Hope, the authors suggest that if signatory countries achieve the greenhouse gas reductions pledged during the Paris meeting, there is a good chance that the world will be able to limit warming to 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial temperatures.
