Optical trapping of nanoparticles by ultrashort laser pulses

Posted on 24. April, 2013.

Replacing the continuous-wave- with a pulsed-mode laser in optical trapping reveals novel phenomena, including the stable trap, modifiable trapping positions, and controllable directional ejections of particles on nanometre scales. This opens unprecedented opportunities in both fundamental science and application. Hiroshi Masuhara and his colleagues discuss in Science Progress the electromagnetic formulations and physical interpretations of these new phenomena. Their aim is to show the beauty and promise of this field.

Traditional Chinese medicine - chemistry and application

Posted on 24. April, 2013.

Amongst the many aspects of modern Chinese chemistry described in the Journal of Chemical Research during 2012, are phytochemical investigations into the constituents of traditional Chinese medicines derived from plants and fungi. Such studies have afforded new medicines to treat diseases such as Alzheimer’s, malaria and cancer.

Novel approach to track migration of arctic-breeding birds

Posted on 8. April, 2013.

Animals move around the globe in billions, some like the snow bunting covering huge distances and enduring the most extreme frigid weather conditions. In an article published in Animal Migration, scientists try to determine how snow bunting populations are linked in space and time. Considering that the snow bunting poses an extra challenge to monitor due to its inaccessible breeding locations as far north as the Arctic Circle, nomadic lifestyle and small body size, they argue that combining multiple sources of data is the most appropriate approach to track patterns of the birds' migratory connectivity.

Outdoor cats: single greatest source of human-caused mortality for birds

Posted on 8. April, 2013.

A new study by scientists from the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute and the US Fish and Wildlife Service has found that bird and mammal mortality caused by outdoor cats in the United States is much higher than has been widely reported. The study which was based on a review of 90 previous studies, was published in the online research journal Nature Communications.

Cultural evolution changes bird song

Posted on 2. April, 2013.

According to a study of more than 30 years of Savannah sparrows recordings, the birds are singing distinctly different songs today than their ancestors did 30 years ago. These changes have been passed along generation to generation, according to a new study by University of Guelph researchers published in Animal Behaviour.

Why are there redheads? Birds might hold the clue

Posted on 2. April, 2013.

Red colouration—historically seen as costly in vertebrates—might represent some physiological benefit after all, according to research published in the journal Physiological and Biochemical Zoology.
