You did not stand here - this could be the title of the microscopic image published in Science Advanced, obtained in laboratories in Kraków, which surprised experienced biochemists. This could be a breakthrough in understanding how the 'tiny power plants' in plant cells function.
We must start getting used to the fact that real winters will be less frequent in Polish lowlands; perhaps they will still occur in the east of the country', says Professor Joanna Wibig from the Department of Meteorology and Climatology of the Faculty of Geographical Sciences of the University of Łódź.
Scientists from the Polish Academy of Sciences have developed a key for identifying the talons of diurnal birds of prey and owls. They presented it in the International Journal of Osteoarchaeol. Their tool can be helpful during the study of bird remains found at archaeological sites.
Not only delicious fruits, but also appetizing leaves sometimes 'advertise' certain species of plants to animals so that they carry their seeds. The old hypothesis that 'foliage is the fruit' was first tested by an international team of researchers who examined elk droppings. It turned out that nettle was one of the plants that evolutionarily adapted to be spread by ruminants.
Scientists from Poland, Germany and the US examined the unusual-looking bones of prehistoric marine reptiles from a site near Winterswijk in the Netherlands. According to the researchers, the record of pathologies such as diseases and injuries can provide insight into the functioning of healthy individuals from 250 million years ago.
