New research by an archaeologist at the University of York suggests that betrayals of trust were the missing link in understanding the rapid spread of our own species around the world.

Before then, movement of archaic humans were slow and largely governed by environmental events due to population increases or ecological…

AbstractHerbicide mixtures provide good control at considerably lower dosages than dosages utilized in single applications. A study was conducted at the Benso Oil Palm Plantation to evaluate the efficacy of application of sole Metsulfuron-Methyl (a residual sulfonylurea herbicide) and its combinations with Glisat (glyphosate) in controlling weeds under two-year old oil palm. The sole Metsulfuron-Methyl application rates were a) 190.5g/ha
