A science perspective: Connecting Earth Observation to High-Throughput Biodiversity Data

  The global decline of biodiversity and ecosystem services has driven international commitment to better management, in particular the Convention on Biological Diversity and its 2020 Aichi Biodiversity Targets. Signatories are required to monitor and report on changes in the state of biodiversity and ecosystem services. However, without a harmonised and efficient system, signatories have st... more
Scientists Found a Turning Point at the Elevation of 4,500m for Polycythemia Incidence in Tibetans

  Tibetans are considered well adapted to high altitude, but whether there is a limit of elevation they can adapt to the low oxygen environment has not been tested. Recently, scientists found a turning point at the elevation of 4,500m for polycythemia incidence in Tibetans. This is the first evidence showing a sharp change of physiological conditions of Tibetans who were thought to have succ... more

Ant eavesdropping leads to arms race between predator and prey

  Foraging in termites, and in most ants, is a collective task during which the risk of predation is high. While basic chemical and primary behavioral analyses have shown that ants may detect termite trail and colony odors as well as termite alarm pheromones, the detection of termites by ants through eavesdropping remains less well understood.
