Naked, unafraid mole rats and longevity

Naked, unafraid mole rats and longevity

While many of our articles concentrate on raptors or rare species, the birds we look at tend to duck the more obvious species of waterfowl. In the case of the beautiful smew, a lot of work has gone into investigating every country it migrates through on its long journey across Eurasia. Gathered together by Diego Pavon-Jordan from the Finnish Museum of Natural History and NOWAC, this ornithological group have established valid links between global warming and a switch in an animal’s habits of migration.

There are so many new species out there waiting to be found and it is essential we find them before so many become extinct. Here is a wonderful island that will suffer the fate of the rest of its nation, if we can’t stop the habitat destruction with which Asia has replaced its uniquely biodiverse forests.

We’re having a whale of a time, enjoying a paper that tries to work out how the pygmy right whale became neotenic. The history of whale fossils is one of big gaps and they cause the problems in resolving ancient relationships still.

How will we tell our children about the dangers of life? The gibbons have evolved a language of sounds and songs that possibly resemble those we first used to warn our offspring of the leopard or elephant danger.
