Strategies for the synthesis of 2,3-dihydrobenzofurans

Posted on 20. July, 2011.

The diverse biological activities exhibited by 2,3-dihydrobenzofurans (DHBs)suggest that they have great potential as lead compounds in the study of biological processes and the treatment of disease. In the July issue of Journal of Chemical Research, Tom Sheppard from UCL reviews  the synthetic strategies available. He hopes  to stimulate greater interest in the study of DHBs in medicinal chemistry, and promote further improvement of the synthetic strategies available for constructing them.

Protection for rare Tricoloured Blackbird colonies

Posted on 15. July, 2011.

Audubon California has negotiated agreements with farmers to secure the safety of several large colonies of rare Tricoloured Blackbirds. In all, the agreements resulted in the protection of the breeding production of at least 50,000 birds, which constitutes more than 10% of the species’ global population.

Tiger-parrots show their true stripes

Posted on 15. July, 2011.

Recently released genetic research from Australia’s CSIRO and New Mexico State University in the USA is helping scientists better understand how Australian birds evolved. The researchers found that the tiger-parrots of New Guinea‘s rainforests – named for their striped or barred plumage – are not, as has been widely accepted, closely related either to a group of rosella-like parrots found in Australia and Oceania, nor a similar group found in Asia and Africa.

Longline fisheries continue to drive albatross declines

Posted on 14. July, 2011.

A new global estimate of the impact of longline fisheries on seabirds reveals that, despite efforts to reduce seabird deaths, upwards of 300,000 birds are still being killed every year. The study by scientists from BirdLife International and the RSPB is published in the journal Endangered Species Research.

Songbirds tweak their tunes to cope with clamor

Posted on 14. July, 2011.

Some birds that live near noisy sites can alter their songs to deal with din. But closely related species with similar songs may tweak their tunes in different ways, according a new study led by Clinton Francis of the National Evolutionary Synthesis Center in Durham, NC. The study was published in the May 25 issue of Biology Letters.
