The latest findings -- which Owada says are the first to comprehensively document the myriad of living organisms
in the imperial grounds -- have shown that many species that are nearly extinct in Tokyo's 23 wards are alive and well in this haven situated in the heart of the city.
Previously, bacterial spores found in a bee, preserved in amber in the mid-1990s, were thought to be the oldest living organisms
The Department of Energy already sponsors an exhaustive research program in "bioremediation," a process that uses living organisms
to reduce toxic substances (A rundown of the program is available at www.lbl.gov/NABIR/.) But the most promising recent development has come from the private sector.
Recent research has also given rise to notions of 'biomimicry': of buildings that are not just static enclosures of space, but attempt to emulate the responsiveness of living organisms
The RTS 2000 features video rate confocal imaging capabilities and multi-photon excitation technology, enabling the study of living organisms
in real time.
At the time, the main differences of opinion concerned the implications for trade in agricultural commodities - in the form of genetically-modified living organisms
- for food, feed and for processing if covered by the provisions of the Advance Informed Agreement (AIA) procedure and the provisions on accompanying documentation, as well as the relationship of the Protocol with the World Trade Organisation.
The comparison between digital evolution and that of living organisms
is not as novel as might seem at first glance.
If, as Wiener and his proteges in the fields of engineering and biology contend, living organisms
and machines closely resemble each other, then bioengineering is just an amplification of nature's own operational principles.
Although forests contain more living organisms
than just trees, large trees are a well-measured "indicator" of a true forest.
Biomonitoring looks at the presence, abundance and diversity of living organisms
to assess the quality of the aquatic ecosystem.
In 1676, studying pond water, he found it contained living organisms
so small they could not be seen with the unaided eye.
The most obvious difference between living organisms
and machines is the process by which they are created and modified to respond to new needs.
Chemical weapons are either man-made synthetics or inanimate agents produced by living organisms
. While the effects of chemical weapons may be lethal, the materials used ultimately dissipate; their toxicity lasts for a limited period.
The living organisms
: G,T, C and A come together to form two base pairs, G-C and T-A, while the extra synthetic DNA forms a third based pair, X-Y, according to the study published in (http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/vaop/ncurrent/full/nature13314.html) Nature .
