Biology Articles » Geobiology
Geobiology is a science that combines geology and biology to study the interactions of organisms with their environment. Articles on Geobiology include topics on the interactions of the biosphere with the lithosphere, or with the athmosphere.
NASA Scientists Find Primordial Organic Matter In MeteoriteNASA researchers at Johnson Space Center, Houston have found organic materials that formed in the most distant reaches of the early Solar System preserved in a unique meteorite.
Study: Temperate Forests Could Worsen Global WarmingGrowing a forest might sound like a good idea to combat global warming, since trees draw carbon dioxide from the air and release cool water from their leaves.
Scientists Find Clue To Blindness In CavefishIn dark pools in Mexican caves, the blind cavefish survives just fine without eyesight, finding food in an environment of low productivity, swimming without bumping into the sides of the rock walls.
NASA Unveils New "Natural Hazards" Web SiteNASA has unveiled a new Web site in which it publishes satellite images in near real time over natural hazards around the world.
How Bacteria Appear To Affect Arsenic Concentrations In GroundwaterTo see if bacteria affect arsenic concentration, groundwater samples were taken from two high-arsenic areas in Maine, and water chemistry and two bacterial populations were measured
Equatorial Water May Have Provided Means Of SurvivalSudden warming trends melted ice, providing refuge for multi-celled animals while the rest of the Earth was frozen
Melting The Snowball EarthScientists believe that during the Neoproterozoic era 750 million years ago, a severe ice age occurred that almost completely froze Earth's oceans.
Solving Darwin's Dilemma: Oxygen May Be The Clue To First Appearance Of Large AnimalsNew findings reported today shed light on why, after three billion years of mostly single-celled evolution, these large animals suddenly appeared in the fossil record.
150 Million-Year-Old Sunken Slab Beneath SiberiaScientists have located a piece of Earth's ancient history buried 1,550 miles below its surface.
Study Casts Doubt On 'Snowball Earth' TheoryA study that applied innovative techniques to previously unexamined rock formations has turned up strong evidence on the "Slushball Earth"side of a decades-long scientific argument.
Geobiologists Solve 'Catch-22 Problem' Concerning The Rise Of Atmospheric OxygenTwo and a half billion years ago, the process known as photosynthesis suddenly gained the ability to release molecular oxygen into Earth's atmosphere, causing one of the largest environmental changes in the history of our planet.
