Building a Better Microscope

Washington University in St. Louis

Microscopes are limited in what they can see because of their resolution, or their ability to see detail. The detail, or information, from the object is there, but some of it gets lost as the light reflecting off of the object moves through the air. Ulugbek Kamilov, an engineer in the School of Engineering & Applied Science at Washington University in St. Louis, plans to use a three-year, $265,293 grant from the National Science Foundation to capture the information that normally gets lost and add it to the information researchers typically receive from microscopes.

Is the sky the limit?

University of Vienna

What stops a species adapting to an ever-wider range of conditions, continuously expanding its geographic range? The biomathematician Jitka Polechová, an Elise Richter Fellow at the University of Vienna, has published a paper in PLoS Biology which explains the formation of species’ range margins. The theory shows that just two compound parameters, important for both ecology and evolution of species, are fundamental to the stability of their range: the environmental heterogeneity and the size of the local population.
