Recently planted orchids grow inside a carefully controlled lab at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden in Miami, Florida April 8, 2014. Inside a small bright lab, nestled behind sprawling Banyan trees in Miami's Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, scientists and volunteers tend to tens of thousands of just-germinated orchids tucked in glass bottles. Fifty thousand more with long verdant leaves wait in a nearby nursery. In the coming weeks, crews in bucket trucks, usually used to fix power lines, will lift the fragile plants onto trees that line south Florida's roads, hoping they will take root and re-establish the blanket of millions of brightly colored flowers that once covered the state. The effort to reintroduce millions of orchids in Miami was inspired by a similar undertaking in Singapore that began in the mid-1990s, said Carl Lewis, who leads the Million Orchid Project as director of the botanic garden. A handful of the Florida species that Fairchild scientists are hoping to repopulate grow in limited numbers at the garden. Picture taken April 8, 2014.

A boy holds a poster during a protest outside the house of Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi in Sanaa November 23, 2013, to denounce the ongoing fighting in the northern province of Saada. A deadly assault by Shi'ite Houthi rebels on a Salafi Islamic school planted in their mountain heartland could ignite wider sectarian conflict in Yemen, where instability has already helped al Qaeda militants to take root. The Houthis, who belong to the Zaydi branch of Shi'ite Islam, have bombarded the sprawling Dar al-Hadith seminary in Dammaj village for two weeks, killing at least 100 people. The poster reads, "Don't kill us with your silence!" REUTERS/Khaled Abdullah (YEMEN - Tags: POLITICS CIVIL UNREST)

A plant root lies on the bed of the dried up Shiyang river on the outskirts of Minqin town, Gansu province September 18, 2013. Beijing blames climate change for wreaking havoc on scarce water resources, but critics say the country's headlong drive to build its industrial prowess and huge hydro projects are just as responsible. Hundreds of rivers have already vanished in northwestern Gansu, one of the country's driest regions. In the town of Minqin, residents said the problem was not new, with the nearby Shiyang river disappearing not because of temperature rises, but because a vast upstream reservoir built two decades ago to irrigate a large farm cut off their supply.

Chinese-made machinery is seen at the Congolese state mining company Gecamines' copper plant in Kambove, in the southern region of Katanga January 31, 2013. At its peak, Gecamines was almost a state within a state. It directly employed more than 30,000 people and ran schools, hospitals, flour mills and vast swathes of arable land, much of which it still maintains, further draining its stretched finances. Its roots are in the mining company set up at the turn of the last century by statesman Cecil Rhodes and Belgian King Leopold II, which later became Union Miniere du Haut Katanga, and then Gecamines.

A farmer sprinkles fertilizer on rice varieties as scientists study the PSTOL1 gene at the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) in Los Banos, Laguna, south of Manila August 30, 2012. A team of scientists from the IRRI, led by Sigrid Heuer, say that they have discovered a gene called PSTOL1, or Phosphorous Starvation Tolerance, which increases grain production by 20 percent by enabling rice plants to grow stronger root systems for better intake of phosphorus, an important but limited plant nutrient. The discovery will help poor rice farmers grow more rice for sale, even while working on phosphorus-deficient land, according to Heuer.
