  1. High tunnels found effective for finishing cold-tolerant annualsRead the original story w/Photo

    Monday Dec 8 | Science Daily

    Researchers studied the growth and development of 10 bedding plant species in an unheated high tunnel compared with a traditional greenhouse in northern New York and northern Indiana. They determined that, although bedding crops should be examined on a cultivar- and species-specific basis, production of cold-tolerant annuals in unheated or minimally heated high tunnels can be a viable alternative for reducing energy costs in commercial bedding plant producers located in northern latitudes.

  2. Best evidence yet for galactic merger in distant protoclusterRead the original story w/Photo

    Nov 10, 2014 | Science Daily

    Nestled among a triplet of young galaxies more than 12.5 billion light-years away is a cosmic powerhouse: a galaxy that is producing stars nearly 1,000 times faster than our own Milky Way. This energetic starburst galaxy, known as AzTEC-3, together with its gang of calmer galaxies may represent the best evidence yet that large galaxies grow from the merger of smaller ones in the early Universe, a process known as hierarchical merging.
