Muscles are smarter than you think
...e muscle fibres--which are half the thickness of a human
hair-- is peeled away, without interfering with the ability of the muscle fibre to contract normally to electrical stimulation. This enabled the researchers to change conditions inside the muscle cells and study the effects of acidity on the force re...

Ecologists help keep death off the roads
...ls find it easier to cross roads in the absence of human
habitation. Fences or large, steep embankments deter animals from crossing roads and funnel animals to easy crossing points. At these points planners should install over- or underpasses for animals, the researchers say. The need to consider the impac...
