Chimpanzees prefer firm, stable beds (4/23/2014)

Chimpanzees prefer firm, stable bedsChimpanzees may select a certain type of wood, Ugandan ironwood, over other options for its firm, stable, and resilient properties to make their bed. ...> Full Article


Ant colonies help evacuees in disaster zones (4/22/2014)

An escape route mapping system based on the behavior of ant colonies could give evacuees a better chance of reaching safe harbor after a natural disaster or terrorist attack by building a map of showing the shortest routes to shelters and providing regular updates of current situations such as fires, blocked roads or other damage via the smart phones of emergency workers and those caught up in the disaster. ...> Full Article


Lemurs match scent of a friend to sound of her voice (4/22/2014)

Lemurs match scent of a friend to sound of her voicePrinceton and Duke scientists report that ring-tailed lemurs respond more strongly to the scents and sounds of female lemurs when the scent they smell and the voice they hear belong to the same female -- even when she's nowhere in sight. Linking a particular female's call with her unique aroma gives the lemurs a way to figure out if she is nearby, since the scents tend to linger. ...> Full Article


Bizarre parasite may provide cuttlefish clues (4/21/2014)

University of Adelaide research into parasites of cuttlefish, squid and octopus has uncovered details of the parasites' astonishing life cycles, and shown how they may help in investigating populations of their hosts. ...> Full Article


Sibling cooperation in earwig families gives clues to early evolution of social behavior (4/20/2014)

Sibling cooperation in earwig families gives clues to early evolution of social behaviorLooking at the question of how social behavior has developed over the course of evolution, scientists from the universities in Mainz and Basel have gained new insights from the study of earwigs. The team of biologists from Mainz University and the University of Basel investigated the interactions between siblings of the European earwig (Forficula auricularia). ...> Full Article


Poor mimics can succeed as long as they mimic the right trait (4/19/2014)

There are both perfect and imperfect mimics in nature. An imperfect mimic might have a different body shape, size or color pattern arrangement compared to the species it mimics. Researchers have long been puzzled by the way poor mimicry can still be effective in fooling predators not to attack. In the journal Current Biology, researchers from Stockholm University now present a novel solution to the question of imperfect mimicry. ...> Full Article


Brainy courage of the rainbowfish (4/19/2014)

The boldest black-lined rainbowfish are those that are born in the wild. Also more fearless are those that analyze information both sides of their brains. This is the conclusion of Australian researchers Culum Brown and Anne-Laurence Bibost from Macquarie University, in a study published in Springer's journal Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology. ...> Full Article

Southwestern bird and reptile distributions to shift as climate changes (4/17/2014)

Dramatic distribution losses and a few major distribution gains are forecasted for southwestern bird and reptile species as the climate changes, according to just-published research by scientists with the US Geological Survey, the University of New Mexico, and Northern Arizona University. ...> Full Article


Guelph researchers solve part of hagfish slime mystery (4/16/2014)

Guelph researchers solve part of hagfish slime mysteryUniversity of Guelph researchers have unraveled some of the inner workings of slime produced by one of nature's most bizarre creatures -- hagfish. They've learned how the super-strong and mega-long protein threads secreted by the eel-like animals are organized at the cellular level. Their research was published today in the science journal Nature Communications. ...> Full Article


A new species of horseshoe worm discovered in Japan after a 62 year gap (4/16/2014)

A new species of horseshoe worm discovered in Japan after a 62 year gapA team of Japanese scientists, lead by Dr. Hirose recently described a new species of horseshoe worm Phoronis emigi from sandy bottom at 33 m depth in Amakusa, Japan. This is the first new horseshoe worm species since the discovery of Phoronis pallida by Silén in 1952, 62 years ago. This study was published in the open access journal ZooKeys. ...> Full Article

One or 2? How to decide how many species you have got (4/15/2014)

One or 2? How to decide how many species you have gotIt is often difficult to decide whether two animals belong to the same or two distinct species. This can be especially challenging for animals which externally look very similar. In a recent study published in the open access journal Zoosystematics and Evolution, scientists from the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin use genetic data and calls analysis to test if treefrogs from West and Central Africa belong to different or the same species. ...> Full Article


'Touched' female cockroaches reproduce faster (4/14/2014)

'Touched' female cockroaches reproduce fasterTo speed up reproduction, there's no substitute for the tender touch of a live cockroach. That's the major takeaway from a North Carolina State University study examining whether artificial antennae -- in this case, duck feathers -- can mimic a cockroach antenna's capacity to hasten reproduction in cockroach females. ...> Full Article
