Underdogs in the understory: Study suggests nature favors rarer trees
A study of seven tropical forests around the world has revealed that nature encourages biodiversity by favoring the growth of less common trees. The landmark study, conducted by 33 ecologists from 12 countries and published in the Jan. 27 issue of the journal Science, conclusively demonstrates that diversity matters and has ecological importance to tropical forests.

In Grids we trust
The importance of understanding the process by which a result was generated is fundamental to many real-life applications in science, engineering, medical domain, supply management, etc. Without such information, users cannot reproduce, analyse or validate processes or experiments. Provenance is therefore important to enable users, scientists and engineers to trace how a particular result came about.

Discovery of coolest Earth-like planet
An international team of astrophysicists has discovered a new planet five times the size of Earth, the smallest extrasolar planet unearthed to date outside of our solar system. Using a network of telescopes scattered across the globe, the group discovered the extrasolar planet is more Earth-like than any other planet found so far. It circles its parent star every 10 years. The discovery opens a new chapter in the search for planets that support life.

Robot set loose to film your insides
A camera-carrying robot that can rove around inside the stomach or abdomen can help give surgeons a better view on the area being operated on. The robot is only 15 millimetres in diameter, allowing it to be inserted through the small incisions used for keyhole surgery. The camera is separated by two rotating cylinders which allow the robot to move around.
