Symbiotic plants are more diverse, finds new study
Some plants form into new species with a little help from their friends, according to Cornell University research published Oct. 27 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. View News Article (2014-11-14)

Research suggests how mosquitoes evolved an attraction to human scent
The female mosquitoes that spread dengue and yellow fever didn't always rely on human blood to nourish their eggs. Their ancestors fed on furrier animals in the forest. But then, thousands of years ago, some of these bloodsuckers made a smart switch: They began biting humans and hitchhiked all over the globe, spreading disease in their wake.  View News Article (2014-11-13)

'Eyespots' in butterflies shown to distract predatory attack
Research has demonstrated with some of the first experimental evidence that coloration or patterns can be used to "deflect" attacks from predators, protecting an animal's most vulnerable parts from the predators most likely to attack them. View News Article (2014-11-12)

Of dragonflies and dinosaurs: Rutgers researcher helps map insect origins, evolution
When the dinosaurs ruled the earth, they were already bugged by creatures who had gotten there many millions of years earlier: Dragonflies and damselflies. View News Article (2014-11-07)

Scientists resolve the evolution of insects
The results, published by scientists from the 1KITE project, are essential to understanding the millions of living insect species that shape our terrestrial living space and both support and threaten our natural resources. View News Article (2014-11-07)

What is a species? It could be difficult to reply if you work with aphids
Karyotype is usually a stable feature of each species since chromosomal changes, if they occur, may contribute to the formation of barriers between populations causing the establishment of reproductive isolation and speciation as possible consequences. View News Article (2014-11-04)

Green spaces don't ensure biodiversity in urban areas
Planting trees and creating green space in cities is good for attracting species, but it may not be enough to ensure biodiversity in built environments, a University of Iowa study has found. View News Article (2014-11-03)

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)

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)
