Oxford biologists explore ability for some females to conceive during pregnancy

The authors argue that conception during pregnancy, known as superfetation, benefits female reproductive fitness by reducing the risk of infanticide, extending the female's window of opportunity for conception, and increasing the genetic diversity of the litter. "Nat...

Life leaves subtle signature in the lay of the land

...so is seen in Earth's mountains. "It's not hard to argue that vegetation affects the pattern of rainfall and, recently, it has been shown that rainfall patterns affect the height, width and symmetry of mountains, but this would not produce a unique landform," Dietrich said. "Without life, there would still...

Satellites show Amazon parks, indigenous reserves stop forest clearing

But the authors found that virtually all indigenous lands substantially inhibit deforestation up to 400 years after contact with the national society. There...

Tsunami + 1 year: Reviving exhausted fisheries should trump replacing boats, gear, experts say

...e a dangerous over-simplification, for example, to argue that with the death of such a high proportion of fishers, providing boats and gear to those that remain presents no risk to the sustainability of stocks or to the longer-term livelihoods of fishers." WorldFish warns that: 1. The catching power of ...

Overfishing may drive endangered seabird to rely upon lower quality food

"The threats that have caused marbled murrelets to decline throughout their range have not been remedied," said Beissinger. "Coastal old growth forests will require 50 to100 years of restoration, and prey resource...

Penn researchers provide recommendations for artificial nutrition and hydration

According to Casarett, "Artificial nutrition is...

Drunken elephants: The marula fruit myth

"Some argue that scaling in this manner may not be the best approach to understand how ecosystems function, but if we don't push our science to explore such systems in new ways we won't discover what we can achieve." The key to success will be collaborations wit...

DNA barcodes put to the test

...e--as demonstrated here with ESUs--and the authors argue that the barcoding movement is well-equipped to help in this effort. But barcoding methods for discovering new species need refinement, they argue, and should be developed in collaboration with taxonomists, systematists, and ecologists into a compreh...

Picky female frogs drive evolution of new species in less than 8,000 years

Hoskin and colleagues argue that because southern females have the most to lose in such cross-breeding, there may have been selection pressure to evolve a mating strategy to minimize dead-end mating with northern males. This appears to have occurred in the contact region where ...
