Bacterial protein mimics host to cripple defenses

Like a wolf in sheep's clothing, a protein from a disease-causing bacterium slips into plant cells and imitates a key host protein in order to cripple the plant's defenses. This discovery, reported in this week's Science Express by researchers at the Boyce Thomp...

Removing egg from nest may help save endangered whooping crane

... siblicide or is killed by a predator, such as the wolf or fox. The egg-removal program was initiated years ago by Ernie Kuyt, an Edmonton-based scientist who reasoned that one egg could be taken and used for artificial propagation programs. The idea was so successful, says Boyce, that the whooping crane'...

Wolves' top-down effect

...ow researchers were able to examine the effects of wolf exclusion on elk--wolves' preferred prey--on plants such as willow, which are favored by the ungulates, and on other species that depend on the willow habitat. Hebblewhite and his colleagues found that in the low-wolf area of Bow Valley elk populati...

Hebblewhite noted that positive NPO values and severe weather in the Canadian Rockies are occurring more frequently, and the trend is likely related to global warming. However, he...
