Even geckos can lose their grip (7/22/2014)

Even geckos can lose their gripNot even geckos and spiders can sit upside down forever. Nanophysics makes sure of that. Mechanics researchers at Linköping University have demonstrated this in an article just published in Physical Review E. Knowledge that can be of great industrial benefit. ...> Full Article


Frogs have developed rapid defences against the red swamp crayfish (7/21/2014)

Frogs have developed rapid defences against the red swamp crayfishThe common frog is one of the amphibians with the highest distribution in the Iberian Peninsula. It reproduces preferably in permanent areas of water where it comes into contact with the red swamp crayfish, which preys on its larvae. Research carried out by the Spaniard Germán Orizaola from the University of Uppsala confirms that the larvae of these frogs have developed a defensive response to the invasive species. They also have deeper tails and larger bodies if they co-exist with the crayfish. ...> Full Article


Why 'whispers' among bees sometimes evolve into 'shouts' (7/20/2014)

Let's say you're a bee and you've spotted a new and particularly lucrative source of nectar and pollen. What's the best way to communicate the location of this prize cache of food to the rest of your nestmates without revealing it to competitors, or 'eavesdropping' spies, outside of the colony? ...> Full Article


Rats purposefully use their whiskers in different ways to help navigate in the dark (7/20/2014)

The way rats use their whiskers is more similar to how humans use their hands and fingers than previously thought, new research from the University of Sheffield has found. ...> Full Article

Novel type of bird pollination mechanism discovered in South America (7/19/2014)

Novel type of bird pollination mechanism discovered in South AmericaInteractions between flowering plants and their pollinators include some of the most elaborate and intriguing relationships known to science. Agnes Dellinger from the Department of Botany and Biodiversity Research of the University of Vienna and her co-authors have studied the pollination biology of a group of small trees in South American rainforests. What they found is a most unusual relationship with the birds that pollinate the flowers of these plants. The results are published in Current Biology. ...> Full Article


New study tells the tale of a kangaroo's tail (7/18/2014)

Kangaroos may be nature's best hoppers. But when they are grazing on all fours, which is most of the time, their tail becomes a powerful fifth leg, says a new study involving the University of Colorado Boulder. ...> Full Article


Smarter than you think: Fish can remember where they were fed 12 days later (7/17/2014)

Smarter than you think: Fish can remember where they were fed 12 days laterIt is popularly believed that fish have a memory span of only 30 seconds. Canadian scientists, however, have demonstrated that this is far from true -- in fact, fish can remember context and associations up to 12 days later. ...> Full Article


Locusts harness the sun to get their optimum diet (7/17/2014)

Locusts harness the sun to get their optimum dietIf you are a locust, the most nutritious plant to eat depends on the ambient temperature. Scientists at the University of Sydney, Australia, have discovered that locusts choose their food and then where they digest it according to how hot it is. ...> Full Article


Tags reveal Chilean devil rays are among ocean's deepest divers (7/16/2014)

Thought to dwell mostly near the ocean's surface, Chilean devil rays (Mobula tarapacana) are most often seen gliding through shallow, warm waters. But a new study by scientists at WHOI and international colleagues reveals that these large and majestic creatures are actually among the deepest-diving ocean animals. ...> Full Article


Plants respond to leaf vibrations caused by insects' chewing, MU study finds (7/15/2014)

Plants respond to leaf vibrations caused by insects' chewing, MU study findsPrevious studies have suggested that plant growth can be influenced by sound and that plants respond to wind and touch. Now, researchers at the University of Missouri, in a collaboration that brings together audio and chemical analysis, have determined that plants respond to the sounds that caterpillars make when eating plants and that the plants respond with more defenses. ...> Full Article


Behind a marine creature's bright green fluorescent glow (7/15/2014)

Probing the mysterious glow of light produced naturally by animals, scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego have deciphered the structural components related to fluorescence brightness in the primitive sea creature known as amphioxus. The study carries implications for a variety of industries looking to maximize brightness of natural fluorescence, including applications in biotechnology such as adapting fluorescence for biomedical protein tracers and tracking gene expression in the human body. ...> Full Article
