Contents: Science Progress Volume 93 Part 2 2010

Posted on 25. June, 2010.

Science Progress issue 2 2010 has a strong biomedical theme. Mesenchymal stem cells have the ability to modulate the immune system opening a wide range of therapeutic applications, mainly for autoimmune diseases and graft-versus-host disease. The idea of repairing damaged neuronal circuitry in the mammalian central nervous system has challenged neuroscientists for centuries: can developmental signals be used to regenerate projection neuron subtypes? With more powerful and selective agents, one of the main problems in organ transplantation is a result of its success, namely a shortage of organ donors. Finally different aspects of plant pathology are analysed. First plant poisons and their phytochemistry are discussed. Sage is a well know herb but its hallucinogenic properties are also of scientific interest.

Magpie Parents Appear To Induce Mortality Of Unwanted Chicks

Posted on 24. June, 2010.

According to a study published in Journal of Avian Biology, magpies favour some of their nestlings over others but in a strange and unique manner. Dr Sang-im Lee and her colleagues at Seoul National University and Ewha University, South Korea, examined the mortality of magpie nestlings and found 'rarer-sex disadvantage'. This means that sons die out more when more daughters are present in the nest, and daughters die more when more sons are in the nest.
