Weapons important for stag beetle evolution.

Weapons important for stag beetle evolution.

The most intriguing species are often those that have adopted unusual shape and size as means to their special species’ needs. Stag beetles now appear to stand out as one of the most remarkable and numerous speciations from a basic model of battling males. Some species survive because flight is used as an alternative to walking – those mandibular horns are so heavy!

Climate change is about to become the issue that many accept as even more important than wars and finances. We are being physically forced into action, despite the fact that almost nobody lives around the Barents Sea or even the Bering Strait.

SUMMARY: When you look up your surname, the list of ancestors may include many Vikings and Saxons, but the base-metal of many Europeans is the Celt, feared by Rome and remembered for fantastic art and beautiful literature. Check your association with UK or Spanish blood now. You may well be surprised how ancient your ancestors are, according to the locality your more recent forebears inhabited.

When threatened species face both competition and hybridisation from a relative, the best techniques for assessment are needed. The giant salamanders stand apart as unique endemics in NE Asia, but now the Chinese species has begun invading the rivers in which the other member of its genus lives. This could be curtains for Andrias japonicus if the IAS manages to gain a foothold and interbreed.

How can the tiny capacity of a bee brain store memory as capably as that of our own? The 2 are very similar in performance, according to this research, despite the disparity in size.

Dragons and biodiversity seem miles apart. Here seadragons help us to understand just what might be left for us on a severely-depleted planet. Thanks to these researchers for getting to the far end of an old story from 60 years ago and using technology to provide us with the truth about fish phylogeny and our diverse marine life.
