Secrets of Dinosaur Ecology Found in Fragile Amber
Ryan McKellar's research sounds like it was plucked from Jurassic Park: he studies pieces of amber found buried with dinosaur skeletons. But rather than re-creating dinosaurs, McKellar uses the tiny pieces of fossilized tree resin to study the world in which the now-extinct behemoths lived.  View News Article (2014-10-21)

Physicists Solve Longstanding Puzzle of How Moths Find Distant Mates
The way in which male moths locate females flying hundreds of meters away has long been a mystery to scientists. View News Article (2014-10-21)

Follow the leader: Insects benefit from good leadership too
Scientists have shown for the first time that when insect larvae follow a leader to forage for food, both leaders and followers benefit, growing much faster than if they are in a group of only leaders or only followers. View News Article (2014-10-16)

Protein found in insect blood that helps power pests' immune responses
Pest insects may be sickened to learn to that researchers at Kansas State University have discovered a genetic mechanism that helps compromise their immune system. View News Article (2014-10-15)

Scientists reveal why beer tastes good to us and to flies
Beer yeasts produce chemicals that mimic the aroma of fruits in order to attract flies that can transport the yeast cells to new niches, report scientists from VIB, KU Leuven and NERF in the reputed journal Cell Reports. View News Article (2014-10-10)

York academics reveal new findings about insect diversification
Biologists from the University of York have compiled two new datasets on insect evolution, revealing that metamorphosing insects diversify more quickly than other insects and are therefore the biggest contributors to the evolution of insect diversity. View News Article (2014-10-03)

Nanoparticles Accumulate Quickly in Wetland Sediment
A Duke University team has found that nanoparticles called single-walled carbon nanotubes accumulate quickly in the bottom sediments of an experimental wetland setting, an action they say could indirectly damage the aquatic food chain. View News Article (2014-10-01)

Insects' fear limits boost from climate change, Dartmouth study shows
Scientists often measure the effects of temperature on insects to predict how climate change will affect their distribution and abundance, but a Dartmouth study shows for the first time that insects' fear of their predators, in addition to temperature, ultimately limits how fast they grow. View News Article (2014-09-24)

Insect genomes' analysis challenges universality of essential cell division proteins
Cell division, the process that ensures equal transmission of genetic information to daughter cells, has been fundamentally conserved for over a billion years of evolution. View News Article (2014-09-24)
