Survival of the rarest: Fruit flies shed light on the evolution of behavior

... and they are also more likely to explore new food patches than sitters. The researchers explored the evolutionary mechanism that favours the persistence of both of these types in nature. Doctoral student Mark Fitzpatrick raised colonies of flies with different ratios of rovers to sitters and different co...

...other patches. Once they reach a certain size, the patches bend around and close off to form hollow spheres, which can then be filled with guest molecules. The size of the spheres is very uniform and depends largely on the solvent in which the linking reaction takes place. The researchers used this method to...
