When eradicating invasive species threatens endangered species recovery
Efforts to eradicate invasive species increasingly occur side by side with programs focused on recovery of endangered ones. But what should resource managers do when the eradication of an invasive species threatens an endangered species? In a new study, UC Davis scientists examine that conundrum now taking place in the San Francisco Bay.

What shaped it, how old is it, and are they connected?
Two articles recently published online for the journal LITHOSPHERE investigate the influence of climate, erosion, and tectonics on the lay of the land in the Bolivian Andes. Nicole Gasparini of Tulane University and Kelin Whipple of Arizona State University tackle rainfall patterns, rock uplift, and the distribution of crustal deformation caused by tectonics. In both studies, they conclude that tectonics win out over rainfall when it comes to shaping Earth' surface in the area.

NUS researchers discover unusual parenting behavior by a Southeast Asian treefrog
Researchers from the Department of Biological Sciences at the National University of Singapore Faculty of Science have discovered that a Southeast Asian species of treefrog practices parental care to increase the likelihood of survival of its offspring. Chiromantis hansenae, is currently the only species in the treefrog family in Southeast Asia that is known to exhibit such behavior.

Fish more inclined to crash than bees
Swimming fish do not appear to use their collision warning system in the same way as flying insects, according to new research from Lund University in Sweden that has compared how zebra fish and bumblebees avoid collisions. The fish surprised the researchers.
