Genetic evidence suggests that early mammals had good night-time vision, suggests they were nocturnal [Phys]

Our earliest mammalian ancestors likely skulked through the dark, using their powerful night-time vision to find food and avoid reptilian predators that hunted by day. This conclusion, published by Stanford researchers April 21 in Scientific Reports, used genetic data to support existing fossil evidence suggesting that our distant relatives may have adapted to life in the dark.

Fungi have enormous potential for new antibiotics [Phys]

Fungi are a potential goldmine for the production of pharmaceuticals. This is shown by researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, who have developed a method for finding new antibiotics from nature’s own resources. The findings—which could prove very useful in the battle against antibiotic resistance—were recently published in the journal Nature Microbiology.

Après avoir subi un brusque effondrement dans les années 80, la population d’anguilles européennes a poursuivi son déclin et est aujourd’hui en danger critique d’extinction. L’espèce a bénéficié dès 2009 des premières mesures du plan national de gestion de l’anguille qui répond au règlement européen adopté en 2007.
