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.

Drunken crayfish show that loneliness raises alcohol tolerance [New Scientist]

For crayfish at least, a more sociable life makes booze work quicker. When crayfish were put in water containing a little alcohol, the ones who had been kept on their own over the preceding week took longer to show signs of alcohol exposure – such as tail flips – than those who had been living with others of their kind.

Anguille européenne : les efforts engagés par la France pour réduire les causes de mortalité et reconstituer le stock [AFB]

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.

When Measuring Biodiversity, Do Individuals Matter? [Methods Blog]

Our newly-developed method simulates intraspecific trait variation when measuring biodiversity. This gives us an understanding of how individual variation affects ecosystem processes and functioning. We were able to show that accounting for within-species variation when measuring functional diversity can reveal details about ecological communities which would otherwise remain unseen. Namely, we found a negative impact of selective-logging on birds in Borneo when accounting for intraspecific variation which we could not detect when ignoring intraspecific variation.
