Txikispora philomaios, a parasite that will help to explain the origin of animal multicellularity

Researchers have discovered a parasite present in seawater and which belongs to a primitive lineage; they have named it Txikispora philomaios. This organism will help to explain how multicellularity developed in animals.

New species of ‘incredibly rare’ insect discovered

A scientist has discovered a new species that belongs to a group of insects so rare that its closest relative was last seen in 1969. The new species of leafhopper was discovered during field work in the rainforest of western Uganda.

Data from thousands of cameras confirms protected areas promote mammal diversity

Researchers at UBC's faculty of forestry analyzed data from a global data set drawing from 8,671 camera trap stations spanning four continents. They found more mammal diversity in survey areas where habitat had a protected designation -- compared to forests and other wilderness areas that lacked that designation.

A mathematical secret of lizard camouflage

The shape-shifting clouds of starling birds, the organization of neural networks or the structure of an anthill: nature is full of complex systems whose behaviors can be modeled using mathematical tools. The same is true for the labyrinthine patterns formed by the green or black scales of the ocellated lizard. A multidisciplinary team explains, thanks to a very simple mathematical equation, the complexity of the system that generates these patterns. This discovery contributes to a better understanding of the evolution of skin color patterns: the process allows for many different locations of green and black scales but always leads to an optimal pattern for the animal survival.
