El Nino tied to melting of Antarctica’s Pine Island Glacier
University of Washington Pine Island Glacier is one of the biggest routes for ice to flow from Antarctica into the sea. The floating ice shelf at the glacier's tip has been melting and thinning for the past four decades, causing the glacier to speed up and discharge more ice. Understanding this ice shelf is a key for predicting sea-level rise in a warming world.

'Be different or die' does not drive evolution
A new study has found that species living together are not forced to evolve differently to avoid competing with each other, challenging a theory that has held since Darwin's Origin of Species. By focusing on ovenbirds, one of the most diverse bird families in the world, the Oxford University-led team conducted the most in-depth analysis yet of the processes causing species differences to evolve.

Your gut’s what you eat, too
Your gut's what you eat, too Changing diet can quickly shift makeup of important microbes there, research says A s the saying goes, you are what you eat. But new evidence suggests that the same may also be true for the microbes in your gut.
