Researchers say they have developed an artificial "leaf” that can produce fuels such as methane and gasoline from carbon dioxide. The team claimed it is a major step towards using fuels made renewably from sunlight for everything from heating our homes to running cars, without emitting any greenhouse gases.

These cells provide the parasite with all that it needs.
Weeds are often viewed as the ultimate pests of the plant world. But with some native species beginning to rely on these outsiders for food and habitat, their removal might just do more harm than good.
