Scripps research team sheds light on long-sought cold sensation gene

...t, reliably avoiding cold temperatures in favor of warmer areas. "It’s pretty amazing that one gene could impact thermal sensation this much," says Ajay Dhaka, a Scripps Research postdoctoral fellow in the Patapoutian lab and lead author on the Neuron paper. "It really highlights the importance of the p...

Discovery of new cave millipedes casts light on Arizona cave ecology

...during the last Ice Age, when northern Arizona was warmer and wetter, millipedes lived in leaf litter. As the climate warmed, they sought refuge in caves, where the subterranean realm provides more constant climatic conditions enabling their survival. Representing two distinct species (one occurring in o...

Tundra disappearing at rapid rate

...there was an upslope surge of trees in response to warmer temperatures. It’s like it waited until conditions were just right and then it decided to get up and run, not just walk." Danby and Dr. David Hik, also from the Faculty of Science, reconstructed changes in the density and altitude of treeline fore...

Antarctic warming to reduce animals at base of ecosystem, shift some penguin populations southward

...major glacial stage. "We know that the climate was warmer then, sea levels were higher by a couple of meters compared to today. Lyons points to the fact that all the global climate models predict a warming in the Antarctic and a decrease in sea ice along its margins. "Those two things will have grea...

Mosquito genes explain response to climate change

..."We know that portions of the country are becoming warmer and dryer than others. Plants and animals are not confronting this stress directly, but rather they are flowering, reproducing and going dormant at different times of the year than they used to. Many species will be unable to change quickly enough ...

Satellites shed light on global warming

...ions between oceans and climate. Faster waves in a warmer ocean, as an effect of climate change, may result in complex repercussions on the climate system, many of which could turn out to accelerate the change," Dr Paolo Cipollini of the National Oceanography Centre in the UK said. Cipollini illustrated...

Why do cold animals make bigger babies?

...ironments produce larger offspring than lizards in warmer environments. So why do animals in colder climates produce larger offspring? One theory suggests the larger size of offspring counteracts their slow growth in the cold. Yet another theory suggests large offspring are not directly linked to tempera...

Evolution of Old World fruit flies on three continents mirrors climate change

...eemingly provide the flies with protection against warmer temperatures. The genetic composition found in the newest samples corresponded almost exactly to the composition of insects that in earlier studies were collected from sites 70 miles, or 1 degree of latitude, closer to the equator. That means frui...

Rising ocean temperatures, pollution have oysters in hot water

..., a heavy metal, reduces the oyster's tolerance of warmer water temperatures and makes it more vulnerable during the summer when water temperatures rise. Half of the oysters exposed to the pollutant in 28° C (82° F) water died within 20 days, said lead researcher Gisela Lannig. Oysters exposed to cadmium at...

Worms produce surprise insight into human fever

...-blooded “poikilotherms?like worms migrate toward warmer environments in response to infections. But the mechanism of fever as a response to infection is still largely unknown. The activation of the HSF-1 pathways by heat shock and its function in C. elegans immunity provides both a molecular explanatio...

Study finds the air rich with bacteria

..., followed by atmospheric conditions. For example, warmer and dryer conditions led to increased amounts of spore-forming bacteria. "This information may help explain temporal spikes, which is important in bioterror surveillance," adds Eoin Brodie, also with Berkeley Lab's Earth Sciences Division. "A spi...

High hourly air pollution levels more than double stroke risk
