Better batteries inspired by lowly snail shells
Researchers at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County have isolated a peptide, a type of biological molecule, which binds strongly to lithium manganese nickel oxide, a material that can be used to make the cathode in high performance batteries. The peptide can latch onto nanosized particles of LMNO and connect them to conductive components of a battery electrode, improving the potential power and stability of the electrode.

Oldest fur seal identified, ending 5-million-year 'ghost lineage'
The oldest known fur seal has been discovered by a Geology PhD student at New Zealand's University of Otago, providing a missing link that helps to resolve a more than 5-million-year gap in fur seal and sea lion evolutionary history.

This week from AGU: Disappearing dinosaur exhibits, ocean greenhouse gases, ham radio ionosphere obs
Are dinosaurs going extinct in museums? Some science museums are updating, or even removing, their dinosaur exhibits. Laura Guertin explains why in a blog post on GeoEd Trek, hosted by the American Geophysical Union.

Adult fish facility opens Oregon's South Santiam basin to threatened salmon and steelhead
Oregon's Foster Dam just got an upgrade, one that is proving vital to the survival of threatened Upper Willamette River spring Chinook salmon and winter steelhead. A new facility ensures fish can bypass the 126-foot flood control structure in better condition as they migrate upstream, improving the odds they reach their spawning grounds high in the Willamette Valley's South Santiam basin.

Coral reef symbiosis: Paying rent with sugar and fat
Scientists have revealed how coral-dwelling microalgae harvest nutrients from the surrounding seawater and shuttle them out to their coral hosts, sustaining a fragile ecosystem that is under threat.

Researchers investigate the communications behind swarming
New research seeks to investigate the directional information flow underlying collective animal behavior. The implications of this work, which integrates dynamical systems theory and behavioral studies, could transform the fields of behavioral brain research and neuropsychobiology. Experiments will employ robotic replicas, live zebrafish, and novel experimental protocols complemented with state-of-the-art behavioral quantification tools. They will seek to demonstrate that an information-theoretic approach can measure social animal behavior.
