Some like it hot: Worms at deep-sea vents favor a fiery 45-55°C

...e surrounding seawater is barely above freezing, a steep and variable temperature gradient exists around the thermal vents, making it difficult to measure precisely the deep-sea temperatures survived by Alvinellid worms. Rather than taking submarine-borne thermometers to the worms' remote habitat, Girguis...

Displaced songbirds navigate in the high Arctic

...high Arctic, where the geomagnetic field lines are steep and the midnight sun makes star navigation impossible for much of the summer. White-crowned sparrows are nocturnally migrating birds that breed in northern Canada and perform long migrations covering a few thousand kilometers to winter in the south...

Picky female frogs drive evolution of new species in less than 8,000 years

...son is complex topography with lots of valleys and steep slopes, where you have species meeting in lots of little pockets, so that you get all these independent evolutionary experiments going on. Perhaps that helps explain why places like the Andes are so extraordinarily diverse." Moritz; lead author Conr...
