Camouflage That Changes With the Environment

Camouflage That Changes With the Environment

New camouflage technology has been developed that allows rapid changes in coloration based on sensing the environment. This new type of camouflage is based on an understanding of how biology works. Cephalopods, such as octopuses and squids, can change their skin coloration very quickly as they move among different environments. The newly developed electronically controlled […]

King Richard III’s Life Revealed by Modern Bone Chemistry Analysis

Details about King Richard III’s life have been further revealed by modern bone chemistry analysis. Dr. Angela Lamb, an isotope geochemist, and Richard Buckley, an archaeologist, have compared bone chemistry and historical records to fill in the details of the monarch’s life. They can identify changes in diet and geographical location that agree with changes […]

Today in Science: GLV Daily Digest for August 21, 2014

Today in science, compelling evidence indicates that seals and sea lions spread tuberculosis to South America long before the Europeans did. A freeloading “social parasite” ant species evolved from its own host, lending support to a model of speciation that has been the subject of a great deal of debate. Cities provide new opportunities for […]
