Bizarre saber-tooth predator from South America was no saber-tooth cat
Bizarre saber-tooth predator from South America was no saber-tooth cat
A new study led by researchers from the University of Bristol has shown that not all saber-tooths were fearsome predators. Saber-tooth cats, such as the North American species Smilodon fatalis , are among the most iconic fossil animals with a reputation for being fierce predators. However, saber-tooths came in all shapes and sizes and nearly a hundred different saber-tooths are known to science so far.

What archaeological records can tell us about historic epidemics
Infectious diseases have been with us since our beginnings as a species. Professor Charlotte Roberts explains what the archaeological record reveals about epidemics throughout history - and the human response to them. The previous pandemics to which people often compare COVID-19 - the influenza pandemic of 1918 , the Black Death bubonic plague (1342-1353), the Justinian plague (541-542) - don't seem that long ago to archaeologists.

On the trail of symbiont diversity
Parasitic wasps act as biological weapons against aphids in pest control. With the help of symbionts, however, some aphids try to defend themselves against the attacks. The struggle between these insects is one of the specialities of Christoph Vorburger, head of the "Aquatic Ecology" department and evolutionary ecologist Nina Hafer-Hahmann, postdoc in the same department.
