Honeybees Infect Wild Bumblebees—Through Shared Flowers

University of Vermont

Viruses in managed honeybees are spilling over to wild bumblebee populations though the shared use of flowers, a first-of-its-kind study reveals. This research suggests commercial apiaries may need to be kept away from areas where there are vulnerable native pollinator species, like the endangered rusty patched bumblebee.

Can thermal cameras prevent ship strikes?

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution

For ferry-goers gliding through the calm and sometimes narrow channels of British Columbia’s Gulf Islands, the views can be idyllic: craggy coastlines and placid inlets set against lush forested mountains. But for endangered Southern Resident Killer Whales (SRKWs), of which fewer than 80 remain, the area has become increasingly dangerous.

Newswise: Trees Consider the Climate When Choosing Their Partners

Trees Consider the Climate When Choosing Their Partners

Department of Energy, Office of Science

ees can establish several types of symbiotic relationships with fungi and bacteria. Researchers constructed a global map of the types of tree symbioses across the world. With the map, they determined that the type of fungal symbiosis found in trees depends on how quickly the organic matter in the soil decomposes. The team also found that bacteria that convert nitrogen gas from the atmosphere into plant-usable products form tree symbioses in arid environments.

How trees affect the weather

University of Utah

New research led by University of Utah biologists William Anderegg, Anna Trugman and David Bowling find that some plants and trees are prolific spendthrifts in drought conditions—“spending” precious soil water to cool themselves and, in the process, making droughts more intense. The findings are published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Scientists make first high-res movies of proteins forming crystals in a living cell

SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory

Scientists have made the first observations of proteins assembling themselves into crystals, one molecule at a time, in a living cell. The method they used to watch this happen – an extremely high-res form of molecular moviemaking ­– could shed light on other important biological processes and help develop nanoscale technologies inspired by nature.

Heat kills invasive jumping worm cocoons, could help limit spread

University of Wisconsin-Madison

New research out of the University of Wisconsin–Madison Arboretum shows that temperatures of about 100 degrees Fahrenheit kill the cocoons of invasive jumping worms. That’s good news for ecologists and horticulturalists who are working to slow or stop the spread of the worms, which can damage the soils they invade.
