“Forget-Me-Not”: Scientists Accurately Identified Plant Memory

Do plants remember? Biologists from the Universities of Birmingham and Nottingham have discovered a mechanism that allows flowering plants to feel and “remember” changes in the environment. A study published in Nature Communications reveals potential new breeding opportunities for new plant varieties, including cereals and vegetables, that can adapt to different environmental conditions. The plant […]

Electronics to a new level will bring two-dimensional material. And it’s not graphene

Since the discovery of graphene (a material with a two-dimensional structure based on carbon) in 2004, scientists have suggested the presence of other materials with similar properties. Theorists predicted that boron could form a two-dimensional material similar to graphene. But experimentally this was confirmed only three years ago. Then the scientists first synthesized Borovan. And […]
