Another species of Varroa mite threatens European honeybees
A sister species of the Varroa destructor mite is developing the ability to parasitize European honeybees, threatening pollinators already hard pressed by pesticides, nutritional deficiencies and disease, a study says.

Bears

Bears breed across species borders
Scientists have sequenced the entire genomes of four bear species, making it now possible to analyze the evolutionary history of all bears at the genome level. It shows that gene flow, or gene exchange, between species by extensive hybridization, is possible between most bear species, not only polar and brown bear.

Exposure to neonic pesticides results in early death for honeybee workers and queens
Worker and queen honeybees exposed to field realistic levels of neonicotinoids die sooner, reducing the health of the entire colony, biologists have found. The researchers were also surprised to find that the neonicotinoid contaminated pollen collected by the honeybees came not from crops grown from neonicotinoid treated seeds, but plants growing in areas adjacent to those crops. This is season-long, field realistic research with typical exposure.

Genes key to killer bee's success
Researchers have sequenced the genomes of Africanized bees that have invaded large parts of the world to find out what makes them so extraordinarily successful. One particular region in the genome caught the researchers' attention and the genes found there could be part of the explanation for the aggressive advances of these hybrid bees.

Honey bee teenagers speed up the aging process of their elders
In honey bee colonies, a single queen is laying eggs from which thousands of worker bees are born. at a young age, workers care for the brood, then build and defend the nest and eventually, towards the end of their lives, leave the safety of the nest to forage for food.

Insecticides aren't just killing bees, they're acting as contraceptives too
There is a major concern at the moment over the impact of neonicotinoids -- a class of neuro-active insecticides that are chemically very similar to nicotine and used heavily in agriculture. they have been linked to the collapse of bee colonies, both honey bee and bumble bee. There's multiple problems that lead to death, including rendering the bees unable to forage, navigate or to learn properly, as well as making them more susceptible to mites and pathogens.

Neonic pesticides threaten wild bees' spring breeding, study finds
Thiamethoxam, one of the most commonly used neonicotinoid, leads to fewer fully developed eggs in queen bumblebees from four wild bumblebee species. this will likely translate into slower egg-laying rates, which will hinder colony development and growth. Researchers also found queen bees from two of the four species ate less nectar after pesticide exposure further hampering reproductive success.

Two neonicotinoid insecticides may have inadvertent contraceptive effects on male honey bees

Both insecticides are currently partially banned in Europe. now researchers are calling for more thorough environmental risk assessments of these neonicotinoids.

A new study takes a fresh look at two decades of radar data -- and comes to worrying conclusions about the status of both species.

Cats crossed continents to be close to us, says gene study

Fish

A fish of all flavors
Receptors are how the body senses its environment. Upon the binding of a ligand, a receptor will initiate a chain of events that elicits a response. Our olfactory system depends on approximately 400 receptors to give us our sense of smell. Taste, however, operates with a much smaller number: The combination of only three members of the taste receptor type 1 (T1r) family can detect a wide range of sweet and savory flavors in humans.

Researchers explore how sea urchins take up calcium to build hard spines
Some sea creatures cover themselves with hard shells and spines, while vertebrates build skeletons out of the same minerals. how do these animals get the calcium they need to build these strong mineral structures? Professors Lia Addadi and Steve Weiner of the Weizmann Institute of Science's Structural Biology Department asked this question about sea urchins, which need to extract quite a few calcium ions from sea water to build their spines. the answer surprised them, and it could change the way scientists think about the process of biomineralization.
