Termite of the sea's wood destruction strategy revealed (11/23/2014)

Shipworms, known as 'termites of the sea,' have vexed mariners and seagoing vessels for centuries. A recent study involving scientists from the Ocean Genome Legacy Center of New England Biolabs at Northeastern University, the US Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute, and other institutions has focused on the shipworm Bankia setacea to learn more about the enzymes it utilizes to break down wood for nutrition, information that may prove useful for the generation of biofuels. ...> Full Article


Odor that smells like blood: Single component powerful trigger for large carnivores (11/22/2014)

Odor that smells like blood: Single component powerful trigger for large carnivoresPeople find the smell of blood unpleasant, but for predatory animals it means food. When behavioral researchers at Linköping University in Sweden wanted to find out which substances of blood trigger behavioral reactions, they got some unexpected results. ...> Full Article


Mothers' education significant to children's academic success (11/22/2014)

A mother knows best -- and the amount of education she attains can predict her children's success in reading and math. In fact, that success is greater if she had her child later in life, according to a new University of Michigan study. ...> Full Article


Study shows benefits of being fat (but not too fat) for deep-diving elephant seals (11/21/2014)

Study shows benefits of being fat (but not too fat) for deep-diving elephant sealsResearchers using a new type of tracking device on female elephant seals have discovered that adding body fat helps the seals dive more efficiently by changing their buoyancy. The study looked at the swimming efficiency of elephant seals during their feeding dives and how that changed in the course of months-long migrations at sea as the seals put on more fat. ...> Full Article


New insights into an old bird (11/21/2014)

The dodo is among the most famous extinct creatures, and a poster child for human-caused extinction events. Despite its notoriety, and the fact that the species was alive during recorded human history, little is known about how it lived, looked, and behaved. A new study of the only known complete skeleton from a single bird takes advantage of modern 3-D laser scanning technology to open a new window into the life of this famous extinct bird. ...> Full Article


Ant behavior might shed insight on problems facing electronics design (11/20/2014)

Ant behavior might shed insight on problems facing electronics designThe National Science Foundation has awarded Michael Hsiao, professor of electrical and computer engineering at Virginia Tech, a grant of $418,345 to improve the accuracy in electronics design, using algorithms he designed that simulate ant behavior. ...> Full Article


Study reveals startling decline in European birds (11/19/2014)

Study reveals startling decline in European birdsBird populations across Europe have experienced sharp declines over the past 30 years, with the majority of losses from the most common species, say the University of Exeter, the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds and the Pan-European Common Bird Monitoring Scheme in a new study. However numbers of some less common birds have risen. ...> Full Article


Strange, fanged deer persists in Afghanistan (11/19/2014)

Strange, fanged deer persists in AfghanistanMore than 60 years after its last confirmed sighting, a strange deer with vampire-like fangs still persists in the rugged forested slopes of northeast Afghanistan according to a research team led by the Wildlife Conservation Society, which confirmed the species presence during recent surveys. ...> Full Article

Female frogs modify offspring development depending on reproduction date (11/16/2014)

Female frogs modify offspring development depending on reproduction dateGlobal warming is altering the reproduction of plants and animals, notably accelerating the date when reproduction and other life processes occur. A study by the University of Uppsala, including the participation of Spanish researcher Germán Orizaola, has discovered that some amphibians are capable of making their offspring grow at a faster rate if they have been born later due to the climate. ...> Full Article


Teeth, sex and testosterone reveal secrets of aging in wild mouse lemurs (11/15/2014)

Mouse lemurs can live at least eight years in the wild -- twice as long as some previous estimates, a long-term longitudinal study finds. ...> Full Article


Why some butterflies sound like ants (11/14/2014)

Why some butterflies sound like antsAnt nests can offer a lot to organisms other than just ants. They are well-protected, environmentally-stable and resource-rich spaces -- in many ways everything a tiny creature could ask for in a home. For the insects that squat inside ant nests, though, survival means finding ways to live with the ants -- by foiling the chemical cues ants use to distinguish friend from foe, for instance. ...> Full Article


Turtles use muscle power to breathe due to rigid shell (11/13/2014)

Turtle shells are unique in the animal kingdom. In order to be able to breathe in this inflexible casing, tortoises have a muscle sling which is attached to the shell to ventilate the lung. A team of researchers including paleontologist Torsten Scheyer from the University of Zurich can now reveal that the turtle's ancestor Eunotosaurus africanus already breathed with the aid of such a sling -- even though it did not yet have a solid shell. ...> Full Article
