Baboons watch neighbors for clues about food, but can end up in queues
Baboons learn about food locations socially through monitoring the behavior of those around them. While proximity to others is the key to acquiring information, research shows that accessing food depends on the complex hierarchies of a baboon troop, and those lower down the pecking order can end up queuing for leftovers.

Cause of Maryland food poisoning outbreak traced to Asia
Vibrio parahaemolyticus caused an outbreak of food poisoning in Maryland in 2010. The pathogen strain sequenced from patients proved to be the same strain as one of those found in raw oysters from local restaurants, strong evidence that the oysters were the source of the illness. That particular strain of V. parahaemolyticus was not local, but was traced to Asia. The research is published March 18 in Applied and Environmental Microbiology, a journal of the American Society for Microbiology. (2016-04-06)

Sweet tooth? Flies have it too -- new study shows how they know what to eat and when to stop

Frosting on the cake
When estimating portion size, we may be more influenced by food images on the packaging than by the listed serving size leading us to serve more than is recommended. When additional food items are depicted on packages -- such as frosting on cake-mix boxes -- we are even more likely to overserve! (2016-03-30)

Fish bond when they eat the same food
For some fish, it makes more sense to swim around with those that share their taste in food -- and smell similar in the process -- than to shoal with members of their own species. That is among the findings of a study led by Tanja Kleinhappel of the University of Lincoln in the UK, in Springer's journal Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology. (2016-03-22)

Government use of technology has potential to increase food security
