Museum Volunteers Discover New Species of Extinct Heron at North Florida Fossil Site

When the bones of an ancient heron were unearthed at a North Florida fossil site, the find wasn't made by researchers but by two Florida Museum of Natural History volunteers. A previously ... read more

Making a Meal of It: Mosquito Spit Protein Controls Blood Feeding

Researchers developed a transgenic approach to inactivating the mosquito salivary protein AAPP. Transgenic mosquitoes showed significantly longer probing and prediuresis times, and worse feeding ... read more

Native Plants Regenerate on Their Own After Invasive Shrubs Are Removed

Invasive shrubs have become increasingly prevalent in the deciduous forests of eastern North America -- often creating a dense understory that outcompetes native plants. Many land managers would like ... read more

Scientists have found that on the desolate Antarctic peninsula, nitrogen-rich poop from colonies of penguins and seals enriches the soil so well that it helps create biodiversity hotspots throughout ... read more

The deep sea is home to fish species that can detect various wavelengths of light in near-total darkness. Unlike other vertebrates, they have several genes for the light-sensitive photopigment ... read more

How Sea Level Rise Affects Birds in Coastal Forests

Saltwater intrusion changes coastal vegetation that provides bird habitat. Researchers found that the transition from forests to marshes along the North Carolina coast due to climate change could ... read more

New research has shown that the last surviving flightless species of bird, a type of rail, in the Indian Ocean had previously gone extinct but rose from the dead thanks to a rare process called ... read more

Members of the same bird species can have dramatically different responses to deforestation depending on where they live, finds a new ... read more

Similar to farm animals such as cattle or sheep, wild red deer grazing in open landscapes can also contribute to the conservation of protected ... read more

Are Otters Threatening Amphibian Populations?

The Eurasian otter typically eats fish, but amphibians, which are in global decline, are also part of its diet, especially when fish are scarce. Researchers identified bones of amphibians in otter ... read more

Low Oxygen Levels Could Temporarily Blind Marine Invertebrates

Scientists have found that low oxygen levels in seawater could blind some marine invertebrates. The results are the first demonstration that vision in marine invertebrates is highly sensitive to the ... read more
