Scripps Institution researchers develop new approach for designing marine reserves

...e been rare. The report published in Science illustrates the most advanced marine reserve network design to date. A group led by Scripps's Enric Sala concentrated efforts in the Gulf of California (also called the Sea of Corts), the biologically rich body of water between mainland Mexico and the Baja Penin...

Scientists produce the script for life

"It also amply illustrates the synergy that can be generated by biologists and computational experts working together to tackle a systems-level research problem. We are fortunate indeed that such collaborations are becoming more common and that cultural and institutional barri...

New map shows human 'footprint' covers most of the Earth

...a chance," said Sanderson. This study also vividly illustrates the application of geographic information systems (GIS) technology as a way of integrating diverse geographic data to reveal new patterns in a persuasive way. This work was only possible because of increased access to global datasets on roads, land...

Purdue creates self-generating nanotubes with 'dial-up' properties

... said. "That's a simplification, of course, but it illustrates the principles we have uncovered." The relative ease of manipulating the properties of nanotubes makes Fenniri optimistic that many new applications will be possible. One possibility is to use the nanotubes in disease treatment. "Many drugs destroy ...

Single gene leap led to flea-borne transmission of plague bacterium

...hin the past 1,500 to 20,000 years. "Our research illustrates how a single genetic change can profoundly affect the evolution of disease. In this case, that genetic change set the stage for a completely new route of disease transmission," notes B. Joseph Hinnebusch, Ph.D., lead author of the study and plague e...

Defects in 'orphan' inositol polyphosphates may be linked to manic depression, cancer

Predators drive evolution of virtual prey appearance

...aring moths." The experiment, Bond and Kamil said, illustrates what British entomologist Edward Poulton had predicted in 1890: Since it's harder for a predator to search for two things at the same time than it is to search for one, the source of polymorphism (variance in physical appearance) of insect prey migh...

Preventing overload in the brain

During an epileptic seizure, the brain (including the hippocampus) becomes disorganised and all of the pyramidal cells fire signals at the same time. The brain becomes overloaded and can no longer respond adequ...
