Virtual duck bills demonstrate species coexistence

...rger particles." To test his idea, Gurd created virtual bills using computer software typically used by engineers to design complex machinery. "The software allowed me to create exact, three-dimensional replicas of duck bills complete with articulating joints" said Gurd. "The replicas allowed me to determ...

"In navigation tasks, such as that investigated here, an individual must constantly maintain an estimate as to his/her current locat...

Air travel and pandemic flu

... flu outbreak in 1968?969. Using this information, virtual experiments were carried out by simulating worldwide outbreaks on a computer. The researchers looked at how the virus might spread from one city to another and how travel restrictions might reduce the rate of spread. Their calculations allowed for su...

The researchers then tested this new approach by comparing the new model's predictions to empirical genetic data for threatened staghorn corals. This test showed that combining the oceanographic and genetic models allowed the re...
