...lation of CD1d on the cell surface, a process that benefits the virus in a novel immune evasion strategy. This decrease of CD1d impairs T cell activation and reveals a potentially important role for these T cells in the control of herpesvirus infection. In an accompanying commentary, Nagendra Hegde and Dav...

Why embryos need a good diet

...they are set in place: only later in life do their benefits show up. For example, meadow voles have thick or sparse coats depending on the day length their mothers experience in early pregnancy. There is no immediate survival value when coat thickness is determined, but later on it matters a lot to the ...

New research presents reserve selection using nonlinear species distribution models

... which land parcels do we choose to obtain highest benefits for our money. Spatial reserve planning is typically based on currently observed (or predicted) distributions of species, and the essential aim is to identify areas of overlap where valuable occurrences of many species can be obtained efficiently.
