Study Shows Songbirds Switch From Bugs To Berries To Fuel Fall Migration

... shrubs, such as bayberry, provide natural beauty, thrive in coastalareas and are simple to maintain. Many songbirds will even use small,yard-sized patches of these natural landscapes during migration, providingpeople with exciting opportunities for bird observation--and providing thebirds with the critical...

Duke Ecologist Says Logging Is Creating 'Mahogany Deserts'

...mainly because of the shootborer caterpillars that thrive allyear in the tropics. Shootborers can quickly decimate young mahogany saplings grown close togetherin rows without the protection of a surrounding cover of other tree species,she said. In nature, the surrounding trees would divert many of the cate...

Methane Deep In Ocean Crust Could Feed Chemical-Hungry Microorganisms

...arth's crust. Microorganisms in the ocean depths thrive where there is no light and dine on chemicals toxic to other life. Deborah Kelley, a University of Washington oceanographer, presents a poster at this week's American Geological Society meeting in San Francisco saying that a significant reservoir of...

Bottom-up Ecological Processes Better For Clear Waters, Study Finds

... marine plants known more commonlyas algae. Algae thrive on these pollutants. The quantity of algae directly determineswater clarity. In a process called eutrophication, algae can deplete oxygen,killing fish, and severe algae blooms can water to smell and taste foul. Unnaturally murky lakes are more commo...

Molecular Mechanochemistry: An Emerging Discipline At The Nexus Of Biology And Physics

Cells and tissues have evolved to thrive in an environment continuallysubjected to fluctuating physical constraints. For example, the constantlychanging fluid dynamics of blood flowing past endothelial cells that linearteries and veins has caused these cells to develop a rapid-fire plastici...

Study Shows: Just Say NO To Bone Loss

...leated and recruited from blood cells, osteoclasts thrive in thebone environment. They work in an odd tandem with bone-forming cells calledosteoblasts in the bone remodeling process. This is much like theerosion/deposition process of a river bank where material is removed and thendeposited once again. Th...

The fingernail-sized mussel's ability to thrive in U.S. waters, its remarkable proclivity for proliferation, and its gift for hitchhiking in bilge water or on boat bottoms makes fish farm contamination a foregone conclusion, says Swann, who works out of Purdue University's animal sciences departme...

Too Hot To Handle

... The finding that metal-munching bacteria can thrive in the barrenenvironment of the storage ponds is ill-timed: a worldwide downturn in nuclearreprocessing means that in some countries the rods are being stored for years,rather than the few months that was intended. Fliermans and his colleague...

Dissolved oxygen content in the Gulf is normally 5 parts per million(ppm). Hypoxia occurs when this level dips to 2 ppm or lower. The lack ofoxygen either forces aquatic...

Researchers Discover Way To Grow New Kidneys In Rats

... They also have shown that chimeric kidneys thrive and are not rejectedby rats' immune systems within 6 months of attachment to ureters. Hammermansuspects this partly reflects the host origin of the kidney's blood vesselsbecause foreign blood vessels are a major stimulator of rejection. The use of ad...
