Aggressive aquatic species invading Great Lakes
Foreign species, such as zebra mussels and carp, are invading the Great Lakes and changing the ecology of this vital ecosystem. A study from McMaster University published in the March issue of the Journal of Great Lakes Research suggests that for the round goby, a recently introduced fish species, their ability to wrest territory from native fish plays a key role in their dominance of the Great Lakes.

Black holes influence knowledge of the universe
Black holes have a reputation for voraciously eating everything in their immediate neighborhood, but these large gravity wells also affect electromagnetic radiation and may hinder our ability to ever locate the center of the universe, according to an international research team.

Researchers develop mouse model for studying blinding diseases in humans
Researchers at the University of Utah have developed genetically engineered mice that closely mimic what happens to humans who suffer from the juvenile, or dry, form of age-related macular degeneration. The findings are reported in the March 4, 2005 early online edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (

New scale predicts recovery of consciousness from coma after brain injury
A Northwestern University researcher has developed the first truly reliable measure of neurobehavioral functioning during coma from severe brain injury that predicts recovery of consciousness up to one year after injury, with up to 86 percent certainty.

Canada's shrinking ice caps
Recent research conducted by NASA scientists has revealed that Canada's ice caps and glaciers have important connections to Earth's changing climate, and they have a strong potential for contributing to sea level rise.

Grizzlies set to invade high Arctic?
The telltale paw prints with huge 10 centimetre-long nails spoke volumes. But now definitive corroborating DNA evidence seals the case of the most northerly sighting of a grizzly bear. The discovery fuels mounting evidence that Canada's High Arctic is no longer the sole preserve of the polar bear – Nanuk is having to make room for its southern cousin.

Colour profile exposes stolen gems
The jewellery industry may soon be able to recover stolen gems or spot fake ones, with a technique which can identify individual stones. The technique called "Microspectrometry," developed by a company in California, can map the unique colour patterns of each gem. The researchers claim that each stone, even those of the same type, has a different spectrum.

3D animation gives evidence more bite
Bite marks can be vital evidence in assaults and homicides, but using forensic bite-marks to match a criminal has come in for severe criticism. Now, Australian researchers hope to make the technique more accurate with animated 3D reconstructions matching a crime suspect's teeth to a bite.
