Shedding light on Darwin's “abominable mystery”]]> Fri, 24 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0100 http://www2.cnrs.fr/en/2883.htm New Phytologist on February 24, 2017, sheds light on a question that much intrigued Darwin: the appearance of a structure as complex as the flower over the course of evolution.]]> <![CDATA[An exceptional system of exoplanets]]> Wed, 22 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0100 http://www2.cnrs.fr/en/2887.htm Nature on 23 February 2017.]]> <![CDATA[Surprising dunes on comet Chury]]> Wed, 22 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0100 http://www2.cnrs.fr/en/2885.htm PNAS.]]> <![CDATA[French institutions back the March for Science]]> Mon, 20 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0100 http://www2.cnrs.fr/en/2889.htm <![CDATA[Risk of rapid North Atlantic cooling in 21st century greater than previously estimated]]> Wed, 15 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0100 http://www2.cnrs.fr/en/2881.htm The Day After Tomorrow. To evaluate the risk of such climate change, researchers from the Environnements et Paléoenvironnements Océaniques et Continentaux laboratory (CNRS/University of Bordeaux) and the University of Southampton developed a new algorithm to analyze the 40 climate models considered by the latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).1 Their findings raise the probability of rapid North Atlantic cooling during this century to nearly 50%. Nature Communications publishes their work on February 15, 2017.]]> <![CDATA[How ants navigate homeward - forward, backward, or sideward]]> Thu, 19 Jan 2017 00:00:00 +0100 http://www2.cnrs.fr/en/2877.htm Current Biology on January 19, 2017.]]> <![CDATA[Crystallography: Electron diffraction locates hydrogen atoms]]> Fri, 13 Jan 2017 00:00:00 +0100 http://www2.cnrs.fr/en/2875.htm 1, and the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic have nevertheless been successful in using electron diffraction to reveal the structure of nanocrystals2. Their method is so sensitive that it has even located the position of hydrogen atoms for the first time, which is crucial in accessing the morphology of the molecules or the size of cavities in porous materials. This research, published on January 13, 2017, has made the front page of the journal Science.]]> <![CDATA[Baboons produce vocalizations comparable to vowels]]> Wed, 11 Jan 2017 00:00:00 +0100 http://www2.cnrs.fr/en/2873.htm PLOS ONE on January 11, 2017, the data confirm that baboons are capable of producing at least five vocalizations with the properties of vowels, in spite of their high larynx, and that they are capable of combining them when they communicate with their partners. The vocalizations of baboons thus point to a system of speech among non-human primates.]]> <![CDATA[Fast fine art : 19th century painting tricks revealed]]> Mon, 09 Jan 2017 00:00:00 +0100 http://www2.cnrs.fr/en/2871.htm 1 researchers have finally learned the chemical secrets behind these mixtures. Lead—in its acetate form—is essential for the formation of the gels. The team's findings are published in the 9 January 2017 issue of Angewandte Chemie International Edition.]]> <![CDATA[Nanohyperthermia softens tumors to improve treatment]]> Mon, 02 Jan 2017 00:00:00 +0100 http://www2.cnrs.fr/en/2869.htm nanohyperthermia, makes the tumors more vulnerable to therapeutic agents. First, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are directly injected into the tumors. Then, laser irradiation activates the nanotubes, while the surrounding healthy tissue remains intact. The team's work was published on January 1 in Theranostics.]]> <![CDATA[The October issue of CNRS International Magazine is now available]]> Mon, 02 Nov 2015 08:10:00 +0100 http://bit.ly/1k4pjbS <![CDATA[2014 A year at the CNRS]]> Fri, 23 Oct 2015 12:00:00 +0200 http://www.cnrs.fr/en/science-news/institutional-publi.htm#activityReport <![CDATA[The CNRS, a key player in the COP 21 From climate to global change: the CNRS at the forefront]]> Thu, 08 Oct 2015 09:00:00 +0200 http://bit.ly/1ZeZZH9 <![CDATA[Film: A Nero's folly]]> Wed, 29 Apr 2015 10:00:00 +0200 http://bit.ly/1zn6PRh <![CDATA[The April issue of CNRS International Magazine is now available]]> Fri, 24 Apr 2015 10:45:00 +0200 http://bit.ly/1k4pjbS <![CDATA[Close-up: A Good Pitch]]> Fri, 24 Apr 2015 10:44:00 +0200 http://bit.ly/1DqpBU1 <![CDATA[Film: Gérard Berry, A Programming Pioneer]]> Tue, 27 Jan 2015 16:55:00 +0100 http://bit.ly/1BkbhLc <![CDATA[The January issue of CNRS International Magazine is now available]]> Tue, 27 Jan 2015 08:35:00 +0100 http://bit.ly/1k4pjbS <![CDATA[Snapshot: Scanning a Temple]]> Tue, 27 Jan 2015 08:34:00 +0100 http://bit.ly/1z4SXXS
