Study led by indigenous people uncovers grizzly bear 'highway' (7/29/2014)

Study led by indigenous people uncovers grizzly bear 'highway'A novel, First Nations-led research collaboration has revealed a previously undocumented grizzly bear aggregation in coastal British Columbia, one of the most southerly aggregations of salmon-feeding grizzlies in North America. Using non-invasive DNA analysis, the authors describe a grizzly bear 'highway,' identifying nearly 60 individual bears, many who travelled hundreds of miles from surrounding areas to feed on autumn-spawning salmon in the Koeye River. ...> Full Article

Potent spider toxin 'electrocutes' German, not American, cockroaches (7/27/2014)

Potent spider toxin 'electrocutes' German, not American, cockroachesUsing spider toxins to study the proteins that let nerve cells send out electrical signals, Johns Hopkins researchers say they have stumbled upon a biological tactic that may offer a new way to protect crops from insect plagues in a safe and environmentally responsible way. ...> Full Article


Baboons groom early in the day to get benefits later (7/27/2014)

Social animals often develop relationships with other group members to reduce aggression and gain access to scarce resources. In wild chacma baboons the strategy for grooming activities shows a certain pattern across the day. The results are just published in the scientific journal Biology Letters. ...> Full Article


For bees and flowers, tongue size matters (7/26/2014)

When it comes to bee tongues, length is proportional to the size of the bee, but heritage sets the proportion. Estimating this hard to measure trait helps scientists understand bee species' resiliency to change. Ecologists will report on this and other pollination research news at the Ecological Society of America's 2014 Annual Meeting in Sacramento, Cal., August 10-15. ...> Full Article


Birdsongs automatically decoded by computer scientists (7/26/2014)

Scorpions are master architects, according to new research (7/24/2014)

Scorpions are master architects, according to new researchThe researchers found that the burrows followed a very sophisticated design, beginning with a short, vertical entrance shaft that flattened out a few centimeters below the surface into a horizontal platform. The burrows then turn sharply downwards, descending further below ground to form a dead-end chamber. This cool, humid chamber, where evaporation water loss is minimal, provides a refuge for the scorpions to rest during the heat of the day. ...> 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)
