A major risk of being hospitalised is catching a bacterial infection.
Most insects can fly.
Yet scores of species have lost that extraordinary ability, particularly on islands.
On the small islands that lie halfway between Antarctica and continents like Australia, almost all the insects have done so.
An international team of biologists, led by Monash University, has discovered a new species of extinct monk seal from the Southern Hemisphere – describing it as the biggest breakthrough in seal evolution in 70 years.
A new study on genetic pathways in the common liverwort could have future implications for crop manipulation.
The dominant thinking in evolution focuses on inheritance between parent and offspring – or ‘vertical gene transfer (VGT)’.
