Moths survive bat predation through acoustic camouflage fur
Moths survive bat predation through acoustic camouflage fur
Moths are a mainstay food source for bats, which use echolocation (biological sonar) to hunt their prey. Scientists from the University of Bristol are studying how moths have evolved passive defences over millions of years to resist their primary predators. While some moths have evolved ears that detect the ultrasonic calls of bats, many types of moths remain deaf.

Tiny crustacean had a heart more than 400 million years ago
Tiny crustacean had a heart more than 400 million years ago
An Imperial researcher is part of an international team that has discovered a rare and exceptionally well-preserved crustacean. The fossil is a new species of ostracod, a relative of crabs and shrimps, and is just a few millimetres long. Exceptional preservation This particular fossil preserves not just the animal's hard shell, but also its limbs, eyes, gut and gills - soft parts that are extremely rarely preserved.

Single genetic switch changes butterfly wing color
Heliconius butterflies are a diverse and colorful group of species that live throughout tropical regions of Central and South America. Many of them have wing patterns and colors that mimic other species to protect themselves from predators, and new research by scientists from the University of Chicago shows that in one species, Heliconius cydno , just one gene controls whether the butterfly has white or yellow spots on its wings.

Innovative gene therapy trial for Parkinson’s disease
A trial for a new gene therapy, known as AXO-Lenti-PD, aimed at improving the supply of dopamine in the brains of people with Parkinson's disease has been launched by researchers at UCL and University College London Hospitals (UCLH). In people affected by Parkinson's disease (PD), parts of the brain become progressively damaged over many years resulting in motor symptoms including tremor, rigidity and bradykinesia (slowness of movement).
