Can't a bird get some biodiversity around here? The landscaping choices homeowners make can lead to reduced bird populations, thanks to the elimination of native plants and the accidental creation of food deserts.

Good bacteria cleaning water in Georgia Aquarium's huge oceanic exhibit delivered a nice surprise to researchers. The aquarium wanted to know which bacteria were at work, so oceanic biochemists analyzed them: The bacterial colonies raised eyebrows because they were virtually indistinguishable from those found in natural settings.

The presence of an invasive species in an ecosystem makes native organisms more susceptible to pollutants and may encourage the spread of additional invasive species, according to new research.

Single neurons in the brain's primary visual cortex can reliably detect straight lines, even though the cellular makeup of the neurons is constantly changing, according to a new study. The study's findings lay the groundwork for future studies into how the sensory system reacts and adapts to changes.

Cancer cells have evolved multiple escape strategies to circumvent the body's immune defenses such as the attack by Natural Killer (NK) cells which normally swiftly kill abnormal cells by releasing cytotoxic products. While studying breast cancer cell lines, scientists have uncovered a previously unknown mechanism that leaves tumor cells unharmed by NK cell-mediated cytotoxicity.

As you encounter new experiences and form new memories, your brain changes. Now, researchers show that some of these change occur in a brain region devoted to visual perception.

Galaxy clusters are rare regions of the universe consisting of hundreds of galaxies containing trillions of stars. It has long been known that when a galaxy falls into a cluster, star formation is fairly rapidly shut off in a process known as 'quenching.' A new study has made the best measurement yet of the quenching timescale, measuring how it varies across 70 percent of the history of the universe.

The more weeks a women takes pain-reliving medication during pregnancy, the earlier their daughters enter puberty. This is shown by a new study. As the first in the world, researchers have examined the correlation between the intake of the analgesic paracetamol during pregnancy and girls and boys pubertal development.

Bosses who are disagreeable, dishonest and careless can mean bad outcomes for companies and teams. However, new research shows employees also play a major role in this. Employee anxiety, self-esteem and how leadership behavior is perceived can all affect the influence that leaders can have. These findings can help organizations identify those leaders and employees with undesirable traits or behaviors to reduce their negative effects.
