Scientists Are Developing Heatwave-Resistant Plants Amid Worsening Climate Crisis [Video]

Scientists Are Developing Heatwave-Resistant Plants Amid Worsening Climate Crisis

Scientists Are Developing , Heatwave-Resistant Plants , Amid Worsening Climate Crisis. About 40% of all crops are lost to pests and disease through modern agricultural methods. 'The Independent' reports that the outlook has become even more grim as the climate crisis worsens. Heatwaves can decimate crops, impacting supplies of human food, livestock feed and biofuel. . High temperatures can also impact plants' defenses against pathogens and insects. A team of scientists at U.S. and Chinese institutions believe they have identified the exact process which leads to failing plant immunity as temperatures rise. The team has worked out a method of stopping this process and boosting the plants' defenses during periods of higher temperatures. . Plants get a lot more infections at warm temperatures because their level of basal immunity is down. , Sheng-Yang He, study lead author and biology professor at North Carolina’s Duke University, via 'The Independent'. Researchers discovered that levels of a defense hormone called salicylic acid rise by up to seven-fold when plants come under attack by predators or diseases. We were able to make the whole plant immune system [for thale cress] more robust at warm temperatures, Sheng-Yang He, study lead author and biology professor at North Carolina’s Duke University, via 'The Independent'. If this is true for crop plants as well, that’s a really big deal because then we have a very powerful weapon, Sheng-Yang He, study lead author and biology professor at North Carolina’s Duke University, via 'The Independent'. The team's work was published , in the journal 'Nature.'

Study Links Inability to Pass Simple Balance Test With Increased Risk of Early Death

Study Links Inability, to Pass Simple Balance Test , With Increased Risk of Early Death . 'The Independent' reports that lacking the balance to stand on one leg in older age has been linked to an increased risk of earlier death. A new study by the 'British Journal of Sports Medicine' focuses on the association between balance and mortality. The study found that middle-aged people and senior citizens are more likely to die within a decade if they are unable to pass a mobility test. The test requires participants to stand on one leg for at least 10 seconds. Other studies have linked an inability to balance on one leg to an increased risk of stroke and the onset of dementia. According to the authors of the study, a standardized test for balance is not included in health checks of middle-aged people or seniors. The research found that an inability to pass the mobility test was linked to an 84% greater risk of death from any cause. Standing on each leg for about a minute three times a day can help to improve balance and hip bone mineral density. According to scientists, stronger hip bones also make people less likely to fall and suffer injuries like fractured bones. The team says that their work, “provides rapid and objective feedback for the patient and health professionals regarding static balance."
