Fragmented habitats no ultimate refuges for forest-dwelling tropical birds

...Conservation Biology." "If you lose your habitat, everybody is equally threatened," added Harris' co-author, Stuart Pimm. "There's no special class of species that seems to adapt well to the habitats we create for them." Harris recently completed his doctorate under Pimm at Duke's Nicholas School of the Envir...

Stockpile bird flu vaccine now

... of the world's flu vaccine is made in Europe. Not everybody is convinced that spending money on testing and stockpiling an H5 vaccine is worthwhile. Albert Osterhaus of Erasmus University in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, thinks money would be better spent on stockpiling antiviral drugs, as the WHO has long reco...

Genes influence how heart failure patients respond to drugs

Arsenic - not the same for everyone

...loping arsenic-related disease is not the same for everybody because an individual's genetic makeup determines how the toxic metal is metabolized. "Finding genetic determinants of arsenic metabolism may one day enable us to identify a super-susceptible group of people, and conversely, people who may be relativ...

The synapse is a shotgun

...released only from vesicles in active zones, where everybody thinks it is released, we get a very bad match to actual properties of the neuron. But if we model broader neurotransmitter release, where these alpha 7 receptors are located, we can match the actual properties of the synapse very accurately." This t...

"The mice appear to have characteristics similar to the subset of patients who are prone to experience this side effect." In the absence of the prostacyclin receptor, mice exhibited ele...

Birds and bats sow tropical seeds

...at it will show is that the replanting that almost everybody does in (tropical regions) is an extremely inefficient way to maintain and promote species diversity." Howe hopes the project -- which he expects will run for 20 years or more -- will attract additional funding sources. And he predicts close academic...

Selective logging causes widespread destruction of Brazil's Amazon rainforest, study finds

...from the forest," Asner says. "Mahogany is the one everybody knows about, but in the Amazon, there are at least 35 marketable hardwood species, and the damage that occurs from taking out just a few trees at a time is enormous. On average, for every tree removed, up to 30 more can be severely damaged by the tim...

Alaska avian flu project issues initial surveillance results

... influenza viruses in wild birds, not just H5N1 -- everybody knows birds are where these viruses come from but no one knows how they get from birds to humans," said George Happ, director of the IDeA Network for Biomedical Research Excellence at UAF, which provided start-up funding for the project. "We want to ...

Hearing loss from chemotherapy underestimated

In his professional experiences, Johnson notes that "the real world doesn't want to give you an extra half hou...

U-M scientists identify major psoriasis susceptibility gene

... "It's an area where it's good to be different. If everybody were the same, we'd be like hybrid corn. A plague could come along and wipe us all out." Scientists have been searching for genes associated with psoriasis for more than 30 years, but until now studies have been inconclusive, according to Rajan P. Na...

First clinical trial of gene therapy for muscular dystrophy now under way

Samulski moved to the University of Pittsburgh in 1986, joining the biology department as an assistant professor with his own laboratory. His first graduate student was Xiao, who had just come from China. Xiao focused on the lab's AAV ...

Developing nations may save the tropical forest

"The forests win, the atmosphere wins, the international community wins, and developing nations struggling to overcome poverty win." "Of course, the devil is in the details," Laurance admits. Earlier efforts to establish r...

Connections between neurons act as information filters in the brain

Viagra improves high altitude exercise performance up to 45% for some

Sildenafil could be considered as a treatment for those who suffer most at altitude but, because of side effects that can include severe headaches and the apparent inability to help some people, it should not be taken as ...
