Prey cannot evolve resistance to tiger snake venom

Australian tiger snakes have ‘hit the jackpot’ because prey cannot evolve resistance to their venom. While that may sound foreboding, an expert said that this discovery may have a medical benefit for humans.

Scientists always assumed it was a northern flying squirrel gliding through the canopies of Pacific coastal forests. But now a recent in-depth investigation of the animal’s DNA is proving otherwise. The furry critter is actually a distinct species, which has been named Humboldt’s flying squirrel, and a new study describes how scientists are up-ending flying squirrel taxonomy.

Climate change and habitat conversion to agriculture are working together to homogenize nature. In other words, the more things change, the more they are the same.

Invasive mussels and less nutrients from tributaries have altered the Lake Michigan ecosystem, making it more conducive to the stocking of lake trout and steelhead than Chinook salmon, according to a recent US Geological Survey and Michigan State University study.

A new tree species, endemic to the floristically rich high Hawaiian island Kaua’i, is already assessed as Critically Endangered according to IUCN criteria. First collected and documented as early as 1988, the new species, Melicope stonei, has been officially described and named in a new article.
