Newswise – Flooding is a global risk, according to world bank, threatening the lives and property of billions of people. More people are at risk of starvation as an indirect effect of floods: the water can inundate crops. Now, researchers are getting closer to identifying the molecular processes behind how floods deprive plants of oxygen … Read more
