The research carried out by University of Michigan focused on the effects of elevated carbon dioxide on common milkweed, Asclepias syriaca. Milkweed is one of many plants that produce toxic or bitter chemical compounds to protect themselves from being eaten by insects.

Warming North Atlantic Water tied to Heating Arctic

The temperatures of North Atlantic Ocean water flowing north into the Arctic Ocean adjacent to Greenland – the warmest water in at least 2,000 years – are likely related to the amplification of global warming in the Arctic, says a new international study.

Led by Robert Spielhagen of the Academy of Sciences, Humanities and Literature in Mainz, Germany, the study showed that water from the Fram Strait that runs between Greenland and Svalbard – an archipelago constituting the northernmost part of Norway – has warmed roughly 3.5 degrees Fahrenheit in the past century.
