Invasion of the island bats

...d organisms were thought to lose their competitive edge and so they hardly ever re-colonized the continent from which they originated. These views suffered a severe blow recently when evolutionary studies of birds of the South Pacific and Caribbean lizards uncovered at least three separate cases of is...

The Cornell study combined cutting edge "proteomics" technology, detailed image analysis, and complex computational and statistical analyses to simultaneously compare 2,000 cerebrospinal fluid proteins from 34 patients with autopsy-proven Alzheimer's disease to those of 34 age-matched cont...

Edge density key to controlling gypsy moth spread

...to below the donor threshold." This would decrease edge populations and prevent the periodic surges of growth that expand the territory. Other invading species may also exhibit pulsed spreading. If researchers can determine that the Allee effect is in place, than this same plan of containment might aid ...

Brains can recover from alcoholic damage but patients should stop drinking as soon as possible
