In stickleback fish, dads influence offspring behavior and gene expression (10/22/2014)

In stickleback fish, dads influence offspring behavior and gene expressionResearchers report that some stickleback fish fathers can have long-term effects on the behavior of their offspring: The most attentive fish dads cause their offspring to behave in a way that makes them less susceptible to predators. These behavioral changes are accompanied by changes in gene expression, the researchers report. ...> Full Article


Shape up quickly -- applies to fish, too! (10/21/2014)

Shape up quickly -- applies to fish, too!Fish can live in almost any aquatic environment on Earth, but when the climate changes and temperatures go up many species are pushed to the limit. The amount of time needed to adjust to new conditions could prove critical for how different species cope in the future, reveals a new study from researchers at the University of Gothenburg, published in the scientific journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B. ...> Full Article


Scientists discover how to beat monk parakeets at their own game (10/21/2014)

In a study published this week in the online journal PeerJ, University of Connecticut researchers announced they have found a way to prevent Monk Parakeets from building huge nests on utility poles by blocking access to the electric lines that are the gateway to their nesting sites. ...> Full Article


Dolphins are attracted to magnets (10/20/2014)

Dolphins are attracted to magnetsDolphins are indeed sensitive to magnetic stimuli, as they behave differently when swimming near magnetized objects. So says Dorothee Kremers and her colleagues at Ethos unit of the Université de Rennes in France, in a study in Springer's journal Naturwissenschaften -- The Science of Nature. Their research, conducted in the delphinarium of Plančte Sauvage in France, provides experimental behavioral proof that these marine animals are magnetoreceptive. ...> Full Article


Evolutionary biology: It's not just for textbooks anymore (10/20/2014)

Evolutionary biology: It's not just for textbooks anymoreUA scientists, including entomology expert Bruce Tabashnik, are on the leading edge of an approach to tackle global challenges in food security, emerging diseases and biodiversity loss. ...> Full Article


The discovery of 27 vertebrates fully reveals the unmatched biodiversity in Tanzania (10/19/2014)

A study by an international team of scientists coordinated by Italy's MUSE -- Science Museum updates knowledge on the faunal richness of the Eastern Arc Mountains of Tanzania and Kenya; presents the discovery of 27 new vertebrate species; identifies the drivers of the area's exceptional biological importance; and advocates for its candidature to the UNESCO's List of World Heritage Sites. ...> Full Article


Study identifies gauntlet of obstacles facing migrating pronghorn in greater Yellowstone (10/18/2014)

Study identifies gauntlet of obstacles facing migrating pronghorn in greater YellowstoneOne of North America's last remaining long-distance land migrations, better known as the Path of the Pronghorn, is being threatened by a mosaic of natural gas field development, highway traffic, and fencing in the upper Green River Basin, according to the Wildlife Conservation Society. WCS scientists used a model traditionally applied to identify resource related stopovers for migrating animals in order to identify impediments to migration of pronghorn. ...> Full Article


Evolution of snake courtship and combat behavior (10/17/2014)

A small study suggests snakes may have developed courtship and male-to-male combat behavior, such as moving undulations, neck biting, and spur-poking, over time. ...> Full Article


Eyeless Mexican cavefish eliminate circadian rhythm to save energy (10/16/2014)

The Mexican tetra fish has two variants, a fully-eyed fish living close to the surface and a blind, deep water, cave-dwelling fish. Scientists in this study used these two fish to study evolutionary adaptation in fish residing in near or total darkness. ...> Full Article


When David beats Goliath (10/16/2014)

Body size has long been recognized to play a key role in shaping species interactions, with larger species usually winning conflicts with their smaller counterparts. But Queen's University biologist Paul Martin has found that occasionally, small species of birds can dominate larger species during aggressive interactions, particularly when they interact with distantly related species. ...> Full Article


Skin coloring of rhesus macaque monkeys linked to breeding success, new study shows (10/15/2014)

Skin color displayed amongst one species of monkey provides a key indicator of how successfully they will breed, a new study has shown. ...> Full Article


Chimpanzees raised as pets or performers suffer long-term effects on their behavior (10/14/2014)

Although the immediate welfare consequences of removing infant chimpanzees from their mothers are well documented, little is known about the long-term impacts of this type of early life experience. In a year-long study, scientists from Lincoln Park Zoon observed 60 chimpanzees and concluded that those who were removed from their mothers early in life and raised by humans as pets or performers are likely to show behavioral and social deficiencies as adults. ...> Full Article


Sensitive youngsters (10/13/2014)

Young sea stars from the Baltic Sea suffer more from the effects of ocean acidification than adults. In a laboratory experiment, scientists from GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel showed that younger animals already eat less and grow more slowly at only slightly elevated carbon dioxide concentrations. Their results are now published in the journal Marine Ecology Progress Series. ...> Full Article

Small, fast, and crowded: Mammal traits amplify tick-borne illness (10/11/2014)

Small, fast, and crowded: Mammal traits amplify tick-borne illness'In our struggle to manage the ever-growing list of tick-borne diseases, we need to understand which animals magnify human disease risk. Our results suggest when generalist pathogens emerge, small mammals with large populations and a fast pace of life warrant careful monitoring.' ...> Full Article
