Newly published research carried out at the University of Guam has used a critically endangered species to show how trees modify leaf function to best exploit prevailing light conditions. The findings revealed numerous leaf traits that change depending on the light levels during leaf construction.


“The list of ways a leaf can modify its shape and structure is lengthy, and past research has not adequately looked at that entire list,” said Benjamin Deloso, lead author of the study. The results appear in the October issue of the journal Biology.

Terrestrial plants are unable to move after they find their permanent home, so they employ methods to maximize their growth potential under prevailing conditions by modifying their

Terrestrial plants are unable to move after they find their permanent home, so they employ methods to maximize their growth potential under prevailing conditions by modifying their structure and behavior. The environmental factor that has been most studied in this line of botany research is the availability of light, as many trees begin their life in deep shade but eventually grow tall to position their leaves in full sun when they are

One World Lithium Announces Proof Of Concept Program For A Separation Technology

VANCOUVER, BC – One World Lithium Inc. (OTCQB-OWRDF) (CSE-OWLI) ($OWLI) (the “Company”) (“OWL”) announces that West Peak Ventures of Canada Ltd (“WPV”) has assigned the proof of concept protocols to OWL who will then contract a private laboratory to conduct a proof of concept program for a separation technology thesis. If the results are satisfactory it will have proven a new critical fluid separation technology (the “Technology”) to separate pure lithium and other related elements including potassium (potash), boron and magnesium from a brine solution that may have commercial applications.

 

The laboratory will have a chemical engineer with known expertise in separation technologies to both manage the program and verify the test results. It is estimated that the program will take approximately three months at an estimated cost of CAD $100,000. There may be additional testing required that will increase the costs.

 

It is intended for OWL to own 100%
