European biodiversity and ecosystem scientists merge and gear up for long-term research

Measures to tackle the human impact on biodiversity require long term research and collaboration between many countries working with common goals and frameworks. This emerged from a recent workshop organised by the European Science Foundation (ESF), which moved towards establishing an ESF Research...

In order to merge the different views (projections) of an object, which is subsequently vaporized in this "diffract-and-destroy" mode, it is important that they all be ...

Gene decides whether coral relative will fuse or fight

... When coral colonies meet one another on the reef, they have two options: merge into a single colony or reject each other and aggressively compete for space. Now, a report in the March 19th Current Biology , a Cell Press publicat...
