Climate change linked to more flowery forests, FSU study shows

Fri, 19 Jan 18 00:01:10 -0800

New research from a Florida State University scientist has revealed a surprising relationship between surging atmospheric carbon dioxide and flower blooms in a remote tropical forest.

Conserving our biodiversity: Priorities for well-connected protected areas

Fri, 19 Jan 18 00:02:40 -0800

The Joint Research Centre (JRC), the European Commission's science and knowledge service, has measured progress and shortfalls in the connectivity of protected areas in countries across the world, identifying the main priorities to sustain or improve connectivity in each country.

'Explosive evolution' of techniques to restore blood flow to the brain

Fri, 19 Jan 18 00:05:00 -0800

Recent decades have seen an 'explosive evolution' of techniques to restore blood flow to areas of the brain endangered by stroke or clogged arteries, according to a report by Loyola Medicine neurologists and neurosurgeons.

Fanged friends: World's most vilified and dangerous animals may be humankind's best ally

Thu, 18 Jan 18 00:06:30 -0800

An international review led by the University of Queensland and WCS (Wildlife Conservation Society) says that many native carnivores that live in and around human habitation are declining at an unprecedented rate - spelling bad news for humans who indirectly rely on them for a variety of beneficial services.

Researchers create first global atlas of the bacteria living in your dirt

Thu, 18 Jan 18 00:09:40 -0800

What lives in your dirt? University of Colorado Boulder researchers are one step closer to finding out after compiling the first global atlas of soil bacterial communities and identifying a group of around 500 key species that are both common and abundant worldwide.

Bacteria under your feet

Thu, 18 Jan 18 00:08:10 -0800

In cooperation with Universidad Rey Juan Carlos - URJC An international team of researchers, including ERC grantee Fernando T. Maestre from Universidad Rey Juan Carlos (URJC), pieced together a global atlas of soil bacteria. The study, published today in Science, identifies some five hundred species of dominant bacteria living in soils worldwide. The findings, based on EU-funded research, could open new paths to improve soil fertility and increase agricultural production.

Mothers and young struggle as Arctic warms

Thu, 18 Jan 18 00:12:10 -0800

A new study from WCS (Wildlife Conservation Society) and partners reveals for the first time the ways in which wild weather swings and extreme icing events are negatively impacting the largest land mammal of the Earth's polar realms -- the muskoxen. The paper demonstrates that while this denizen of the Arctic and other cold-adapted species have spectacular adaptations, the previously unknown effects of rain-on-snow events, winter precipitation, and ice tidal surges are costly for the animals, if not deadly.

Reviled animals could be our powerful allies

Thu, 18 Jan 18 00:14:50 -0800

Animal carnivores living in and around human habitation are declining at an unprecedented rate -- but they may provide crucial benefits to human societies. An international review led by University of Queensland researchers has revealed that predators and scavengers ranging from bats to leopards and vultures are valuable to human health and well-being.

Genetic drift caught in action in invasive birds

Wed, 17 Jan 18 00:08:20 -0800

Studies of island bird populations have taught us a lot about evolution, but it's hard to catch birds in the act of naturally colonizing new islands. Instead, a new study from The Auk: Ornithological Advances examines what's happened by looking at the genetics of a species that arrived in Hawaii in the twentieth century through decidedly unnatural means--us.

Timing of spring birdsong provides climate insights

Wed, 17 Jan 18 00:08:10 -0800

Climate change has scientists worried that birds' annual migration and reproduction will be thrown out of sync with the seasons. Because birds' songs are correlated with their breeding behavior and are easily identifiable to species, monitoring birdsong can be a good way to keep tabs on this possibility, and a new study from The Condor: Ornithological Applications takes advantage of this approach to provide new baseline data for the birds of northern California.

DIPG tumor patterns offer new insight on survival

Wed, 17 Jan 18 00:01:40 -0800

A small subset of patients with tumors that bear mutations in a gene in the basic packaging of DNA (known as histone mutations) may have better outcomes than others, suggests new research from Michigan Medicine's Pediatric Brain Tumor Research Initiative.

Scale-eating fish adopt clever parasitic methods to survive

Wed, 17 Jan 18 00:03:00 -0800

A small group of fishes -- possibly the world's cleverest carnivorous grazers -- feeds on the scales of other fish in the tropics. A team led by biologists at the University of Washington is trying to understand these scale-feeding fish and how this odd diet influences their body evolution and behavior.

Use of primate 'actors' misleading millions of viewers

Wed, 17 Jan 18 00:10:40 -0800

More needs to be done to educate audiences, including viewers at home and filmmakers, on the unethical nature of using primates in the film industry, says a leading expert in a new study.

Bile acids fire up fat burning

Tue, 16 Jan 18 00:07:50 -0800

EPFL scientists have discovered a novel role for bile acids: converting energy-storing white fat depots into energy-expending beige fat. The study is published in Nature Communications.
