'Personality-gene' makes songbirds curious

...ble changes in their environment and how well they cope with these changes", explains Bart Kempenaers. "If we want to understand the ecological and evolutionary importance of variation in personality in natural, free-living animal populations, it would help a lot to know the molecular genetic mechanisms b...

Amphibians in losing race with environmental change

...s may be too intense and too new for amphibians to cope with them," the researchers wrote in their report. "Behaviors and ecological attributes that have probably persisted, and were probably beneficial, for millions of years . . . under today's conditions may subject amphibians to a variety of damaging a...

Corals -- More complex than you?

...mmune system is a black box at present. How corals cope with the worldwide upsurge in diseases, and the extent to which they are affected by other stresses caused by human activity are important questions. The similarity of the coral and human innate immune repertoires implies that they may function in si...

Ancient genes used to produce salt-tolerant wheat

...ate salt -- to identify wheat varieties that could cope with higher salinity. They were particularly interested in the premium-priced durum wheat, which is much more salt-sensitive than bread wheat. "We screened a hundred durum wheats from the Australian Winter Cereals Collection at Tamworth, which con...

How trees manage water in arid environments

Is there a pilot in the insect?

...imeters and variometers. An insect brain wouldn't cope with these cumbersome, heavy, energy-consuming devices. This important work shows that this new science called biorobotics, that the team from Marseille started in 1985, is important both for fundamental and applied research. The method consists i...

Protein sensor for fatty acid buildup in mitochondria

...ing carnitine supplements might help PKAN patients cope with this debilitating disease." "One of our challenges is how to develop an animal model of this disease that we can use to determine if reduced dietary fat and carnitine supplements offer hope in the treatment of PKAN in humans," said Suzanne Ja...

Living with water scarcity -- world must act now

...tter water systems will be a key to helping people cope with dry spells. Poverty, hunger, gender inequality, and environmental degradation continue to afflict developing countries not because of technical failings but because of political and institutional failings. There is need for drastic reform in...

Turning a cellular sentinel into a cancer killer

...pies aimed at reactivating p53 would still have to cope with the adaptability of cancers. "For any therapies based on these findings, you would have to imagine that sooner or later, resistance would develop," said Lowe. "And I think the challenge—which is true for any therapy where you can get resistance—...

Vaccine to cope with viral diversity in HIV

Many species do not live in cities and do not breed close to highways, and indeed the birds of urbanized areas are highly similar: The same few species become common everywhere, while the area’s original species variety is...

Research into hypothermia and hypoxia is important because they are problems that affect people under a variety of circumstances. Doctors often are called upon to treat people who have suffered accidental hypothermia,...

Too mellow for our predatory world

...nto the wild, animals are trained to recognise and cope with predators. But in most cases it is very difficult to predict the flexibility in behaviour because little is known about the underlying physiological mechanisms that control behaviour such as flight. The scientist around Thomas Roedl from the M...

Common carp sheds new light on surviving in extreme environments

...the summers are hot and steamy. "Its ability to cope with such extreme conditions of temperature, lack of oxygen and dirty, sediment-laden water makes it a particularly good subject for working out how animals can tolerate stress because the underlying mechanisms are so exaggerated and displayed so cle...

Parallel evolution: Proteins do it, too

... a pancreatic enzyme helped Asian colobine monkeys cope with an unusual diet. "Colobines are different from other monkeys in that they primarily eat leaves rather than fruit or insects, and leaves are very difficult to digest," Zhang said. The monkeys manage with a digestive system similar to a cow's. B...
