Poor prenatal nutrition permanently damages function of insulin-producing cells in the pancreas

...week, restricted to only half the amount. It had a dramatic effect. At birth, their babies weighed 23 percent less than the control group.

Experiments provide proof of how traveling in groups protects insects

Few events involving animals are more dramatic than when they band together and head out on the march cross-country. Among examples are the many thousands of wildebeests and other hoofed mammals that form herds and migrate across the African plains. Countless millions of Mormon crickets and yo...

Introduced foxes transformed vegetation on Aleutian Islands from lush grasslands to tundra

...the indirect effects on the whole ecosystem are as dramatic as the direct effects on the seabirds. "Introduced species are a global phenomenon, and we tend to focus on the direct effects, such as the reduction or extinction of species that are consumed by an introduced predator. This study shows how the effe...

...heir attention to the gene that exhibited the most dramatic of these duplications: RanBP2. RanBP2 is the largest protein found at the nuclear pore complex, helping to regulate nucleic acid and protein traffic in and out of the nucleus.

New Breast Cancer Test Could Save Lives

...the ages of 35-55 in Europe, the test could have a dramatic effect on the number of deaths from this disease. The test, which utilises an innovative radar system, will enable women to be tested regularly without the fear of over-exposure to radiation, a problem with existing X-ray tests.

Falling ants glide back to trunk to avoid dangers of forest floor

...," Dudley said. "Their 180-degree turns are pretty dramatic in the absence of wings." The team found that, unlike flying squirrels that can glide horizontally for long distances, the ants fall at a relatively high velocity, around 4 meters per second (12 feet per second), and approach the tree at a steep ang...
