Increasingly severe disturbances weaken world's temperate forests
(USDA Forest Service - Pacific Southwest Research Station) Longer, more severe, and hotter droughts and a myriad of other threats, including diseases and more extensive and severe wildfires, are threatening to transform some of the world's temperate forests, a new study published in Science has found. Without informed management, some forests could convert to shrublands or grasslands within the coming decades.

New 'Tissue Velcro' could help repair damaged hearts
(University of Toronto Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering) Engineers at the University of Toronto just made assembling functional heart tissue as easy as fastening your shoes. The team has created a biocompatible scaffold that allows sheets of beating heart cells to snap together just like Velcro.

New synthetic tumor environments make cancer research more realistic
(University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) Tumors are notoriously difficult to study in their natural habitat -- body tissues -- but a new synthetic tissue environment may give cancer researchers the next-best look at tumor growth and behavior. University of Illinois researchers have developed a new technique to create a cell habitat of hydrogels which can realistically and quickly recreate microenvironments found across biology.
