In the immune system, the genes coding for antibodies are shuffled to create a wide variety of antibodies capable of recognizing an infinite number of distinct antigens. In their study, the researchers closely tracked a...

Ancient trans-Atlantic swarm brought locusts to the New World

...ve answered a long-standing conundrum: why are the closest relatives of the African desert locust (Schistocerca gregaria) found in the New World, rather than Africa?

Older female fish prefer imperfect male mates, study finds

...Morris said. "Therefore, any fish they see that is closest to this prototype is preferred." The same phenomenon has been suggested to explain attraction in other animals, including humans. As their lives progress, however, female swordtails may encounter more asymmetrical than symmetrical males, and so beg...
