La feuille des plantes supérieures : fonction et sensibilité (video)

Au sein des feuilles, les cellules renfermant des chloroplastes captent l'énergie lumineuse. Cette énergie permet la synthèse de molécules complexes (saccharose, acides aminés, etc.) à partir de molécules très simples (gaz carbonique, nitrate, sulfate). Il s'ensuit un dégagement d'oxygène. Les herbicides redoutables inhibent sélectivement une enzyme clé catalysant une étape incontournable de ces synthèses. Certains de ces herbicides sont particulièrement efficaces et présente

Professor Wolfe will then offer her views on the some possible interventions to address the problem and

Ever Wonder Why Ice Floats on Water?
When water freezes, it expands and becomes less dense. This means that there is the same number of particles taking up more space.  Since the ice cubes are less dense than the water, they float! As an ice cube melts, its volume changes, but its weight is conserved (law of conservation of mass). So, the melted water has exactly the same weight as the water it displaced as an ice cube the water level stays the same! (0:44)
