Tree frogs speed up their life cycle when becoming lunch (9/20/2014)

Tree frogs speed up their life cycle when becoming lunchThink again if you've always believed that events in the life cycle of animals happen consistently, almost rigidly, as part of the natural rhythm of nature. Studies by Sinlan Poo and David Bickford of the National University of Singapore show that Mother Nature is much more flexible than you might think. ...> Full Article


Bats change strategy when food is scarce (9/20/2014)

Bats could be more flexible in their echolocation behavior than previously thought, according to a new study into the foraging techniques of the desert long-eared bat by researchers at the University of Bristol. ...> Full Article


New deep sea mushroom-shaped organisms discovered (9/19/2014)

New deep sea mushroom-shaped organisms discoveredThe new organisms are multicellular and mostly non-symmetrical, with a dense layer of gelatinous material between the outer skin cell and inner stomach cell layers. ...> Full Article


Parrots go to carpentry school (9/19/2014)

Parrots go to carpentry schoolCognitive biologist Alice Auersperg from the University of Vienna and her team have shown that a spontaneous innovation by a Goffin's cockatoo can spread to other conspecifics by social learning. They publish their findings in the current issue of the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B. ...> Full Article


Aging gracefully: Diving seabirds shed light on declines with age (9/18/2014)

Aging gracefully: Diving seabirds shed light on declines with ageScientists who studied long-lived diving birds, which represent valuable models to examine aging in the wild, found that blood oxygen stores, resting metabolism and thyroid hormone levels all declined with age, although diving performance did not. Apparently, physiological changes do occur with age in long-lived species, but they may have no detectable effect on behavioral performance. ...> Full Article

An uphill climb for mountain species? (9/17/2014)

An uphill climb for mountain species?A recently published paper provides a history of scientific research on mountain ecosystems, looks at the issues threatening wildlife in these systems, and sets an agenda for biodiversity conservation throughout the world's mountain regions. ...> Full Article


Migrating birds sprint in spring, but take things easy in autumn (9/16/2014)

Migrating birds sprint in spring, but take things easy in autumnPasserine birds, also known as perching birds, that migrate by night tend to fly faster in spring than they do in autumn to reach their destinations. This seasonal difference in flight speed is especially noticeable among birds that only make short migratory flights, says researcher Cecilia Nilsson of Lund University in Sweden, in Springer's journal Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology. ...> Full Article


Zooming in for a safe flight (9/15/2014)

Bats emit ultrasound pulses and measure the echoes reflected from their surroundings. They have an extremely flexible internal navigation system that enables them to do this. A study published in Nature Communications shows that when a bat flies close to an object, the number of active neurons in the part of a bat's brain responsible for processing acoustic information about spatial positioning increases. This information helps bats to react quickly and avoid obstacles. ...> Full Article

Team defines new biodiversity metric (9/13/2014)

To understand how the repeated climatic shifts over the last 120,000 years may have influenced today's patterns of genetic diversity, a team of researchers led by City College of New York biologist Dr. Ana Carnaval developed a new biodiversity metric called 'phylogeographic endemism.' ...> Full Article


Ready for mating at the right time (9/12/2014)

Ready for mating at the right timeFish rely on pheromones to trigger social responses and to coordinate reproductive behavior in males and females. Scientists at the Marine Science Center at the University of the Algarve in Faro, Portugal, and at the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology in Jena, Germany, have now identified such a signal molecule in the urine of male Mozambique tilapia: this pheromone boosts hormone production and accelerates oocyte maturation in reproductive females. ...> Full Article

Flapping baby birds give clues to origin of flight (9/10/2014)

Flapping baby birds give clues to origin of flightThe origin of flight is a contentious issue: some argue that tree-climbing dinosaurs learned to fly in order to avoid hard falls. Others favor the story that theropod dinosaurs ran along the ground and pumped their forelimbs to gain lift, eventually talking off. New evidence showing the early development of aerial righting in birds, published by biologists Robert Dudley of UC Berkeley and Dennis Evangelista of the University of North Carolina, favors the tree-dweller hypothesis. ...> Full Article


Zombie bacteria are nothing to be afraid of (9/9/2014)

Zombie bacteria are nothing to be afraid ofScientists at Washington University in St. Louis have obtained the first experimental evidence that there are at least two fail-safe points in the bacterial cell cycle. If the fail-safes are activated, the cell is forced to exit the cell cycle forever. It then enters a zombie-like state and is unable to reproduce even under the most favorable of conditions.Drugs that trigger the fail-safes are already under development. ...> Full Article
