Summary:
Research showing how fungus-farming ants allow parasites to pillage their crop and eat their offspring, in exchange for offering protection against an even more brutal enemy, is offering clues into co-evolution between species. Jim Drury has more.

Scientists Dig Deep for Ants' Excavation Secrets

Scientists Dig Deep for Ants' Excavation Secrets

Reuters (Dec. 12, 2013) — Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology are spying on ant colonies, conducting research that could one day lead to the development of ant-like robots that work together as a team. But first, the scientists want to know how the ants organize themselves to build their complex subterranean nests, and they're using old and new technologies to find out. Ben Gruber has more.

The Rewilding of California Wolf Territory

FORA.tv (Dec. 18, 2014) — The Rewilding of California Wolf Territory California Academy of Sciences - California Academy of Sciences What would it be like to live in a world with no predators roaming our landscapes? Would their elimination bring about a pastoral, peaceful human civilization? Or in fact is their existence critical to our own, and do we need to be doing more to assure their health and the health of the landscapes they need to thrive? In this talk, Cristina Eisenberg delivers a compelling call for the necessity of top predators in large, undisturbed landscapes, and shows us how a continental-long corridor-a "carnivore way"-provides the room they need to roam and disperse. Along the way we will follow in the footsteps of six large carnivores-wolves, grizzly bears, lynx, jaguars, wolverines, and cougars-on a 7,500-mile wildlife corridor from Alaska to Mexico along the Rocky Mountains. Backed by robust science, Eisenberg shows how their well-being is a critical factor in sustaining healthy landscapes and how it is possible for humans and large carnivores to coexist peacefully and even to thrive. University students in natural resource science programs, resource managers, conservation organizations, and anyone curious about carnivore ecology and management in a changing world will find a thoughtful guide to large carnivore conservation that dispels long-held myths about their ecology and contributions to healthy, resilient landscapes.

Mechanical Carp Takes Marine Robotics to New Depths

Reuters (Oct. 21, 2013) — The next generation of weapons for marine warfare may look and behave like fish. Scientists in Singapore are copying the natural movement of carp to develop a sea-going robot for use in stealth missions for the military, search and rescue operations or ocean floor research. Rob Muir reports.
