Conserving a wealth of diversity: The dry tropical forests of Latin America

Dry forests in Latin America are among the world’s most threatened tropical forests. Less than 10 percent of their original extent remains in many countries, much less than many rain forests such as Amazonia, which remains approximately 80 percent intact. Dry forests were the cradle of pre-Colombian civilization in Latin America, and the source of […]

Engineers create room-temperature multiferroic material

Engineers create room-temperature multiferroic material

Multiferroics – materials that exhibit both magnetic and electric order – are of interest for next-generation computing but difficult to create because the conditions conducive to each of those states are usually mutually exclusive. And in most multiferroics found to date, their respective properties emerge only at extremely low temperatures. Two years ago, researchers in […]
