Salty oceans provide early warning for climate change

...rsity of Barcelona in Spain. Salt increases the density of water. Once a pocket of water becomes salty enough it sinks, drawing in additional water from surrounding areas, and initiates an ocean circulation loop called thermohaline overturning. The scientists discovered that a build up of salt in the w...

Study shows lizard moms dress their children for success

... population density." According to Sinervo, the density of the lizard population is probably a critical factor. At high densities, the aggressive orange-throated males are so busy fighting with other lizards that they are especially vulnerable to predators. As a result, the predators are likely to focus o...

New designer lipid-like peptide with lipid nanostructures for drug delivery systems

...line nanostructures. Moreover, the surface charge density of lipidic nanostructures can be varied in a simple manner. Dr. Anan Yaghmur, first author of the study, comments on the study, “the addition of small amounts of designer lipid-like peptides is sufficient to form systems with excellent potential ...

Pistachios lower cholesterol, provide antioxidants

...y 11.6 percent. The study also found that non-high density lipoproteins (non-HDL) decreased by 11.2 percent. Non-HDL levels are considered reliable predictors of cardiovascular disease risk. The three-ounce pistachio diet also decreased the ratios of total cholesterol to HDL, LDL to HDL and non-HDL to HD...

Catching cancer's spread by watching hemoglobin

Global survey of lizards reveals greater abundance of animals on islands than on mainland ecosystems

...and acre contains 777 lizards. This difference in density persisted when the scientists controlled for location and environmental conditions. “The ecology of islands is particularly important because, while the world’s more than 100,000 islands constitute only 7 percent of the global land surface, they c...

Role of noise in neurons

...the cerebral cortex of the brain can have a wiring density of up to 4km per mm3 by using incredibly thin axons as wires, with an average diameter of 0.3 micrometers (1ìm is one millionth of a meter). Although, as in computer chips, this miniaturization economizes on space and energy, it increases the noise i...

'Short-circuit' found in ocean circulation

The researchers made use of a unique signal - the spread of helium released naturally from the Earth’s interior...

Whiteflies and plant viruses can help each other to speed up biological invasion
