Grazing Sharks: Bonnethead Sharks Eat and Digest Seagrass

BonnetheadShark_SamLeigh.jpg

New research shows that bonnethead sharks are able to digest seagrass, challenging the notion that all sharks survive on a purely carnivorous diet. This work will be presented at the annual conference of the Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology in San Francisco, CA, on January 7th, 2018.

Can Machines Learn Animal Behavior?

New research applies machine learning to classify the behavior of juvenile salmon based on tracking data. Scientists are using these approaches to identify when and where salmon are being eaten by invasive fishes. The results of this study will be presented at the annual conference of the Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology in San Francisco, CA on January 7, 2018.

Coral Immigrants Provide Hope for Reefs Facing Climate Change

ISS005-E-15298.JPG

New models identify factors that put coral reefs at risk of extinction in the face of climate change, and suggest that facilitating migration of corals could allow reefs to adapt. The results of this research will be presented at the annual conference of the Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology in San Francisco, CA on January 7, 2018.

Scientists Find That Genome Size Affects Whether Plants Become Invasive

A University of Rhode Island scientist who studies the invasive plant Phragmites was part of an international research team that found that the most significant factor in determining whether a plant will become invasive is the size of its genome.

Leaping Larvae: Developing Flies Jump Without Legs

JumpingMidge.gif

New research characterizes jumping behavior in larval midge flies. Even though these larvae are typically restrained during development, they can use a unique physiological mechanism to jump long distances. These results will be presented at the annual conference of the Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology in San Francisco, CA.
