Using water fleas, researchers investigate adaptive evolution

Water daphnia. Credit: Matthew Walsh, UTA associate professor of biology. Researchers from The University of Texas at Arlington resurrected the preserved eggs of a shrimp-like crustacean to examine long-standing questions about adaptive evolution, reporting the results in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Science. The study explores the evolutionary impacts of species invasions […]

Researchers investigate material properties for longer-lasting, more efficient solar cells

Former Florida State University postdoctoral researcher Sarah Wieghold, left, and FSU Assistant Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry Lea Nienhaus. Their research is helping to understand the fundamental processes in a material known as perovskites, work that could lead to more efficient solar cells that also do a better job of resisting degradation.
