Newly discovered beetles construct private homes out of leaf holes and feces. The team studied plant surfaces in order to determine what influence cell form and microstructure as well as surface chemistry exert on the adhesion behavior of insects. Hidden in the thick foliage of tropical forests a subfamily of colorful beetles—the Chrysomelidae—may be hiding the secrets to the earliest stages of social behavior.
Scientists are engineering microbes to break down toxic chemicals found in 300,000 tons of explosives dumped in the Baltic Sea How ancient FAECES could finally solve an American mystery: China's cockroach industry is booming, but the country's affinity for the insect is spreading worldwide. We postulate that the observed behavioral modifications, especially under decreasing barometric pressure would reduce the probability of injury or death under adverse weather conditions.

Apple's new iPhone XS and XS Max go on sale on Friday - and the biggest handset Apple has ever made is also its best and possibly unsurprisingly, its most expensive. Nocturnal images show multi-coloured creatures that make up 'biological soup' in pitch-black depths of the Pacific Ocean California's deadly 'Big One' could be caused by volcanic eruptions: Pygmy Marmoset.
I became personally acquainted with these insects when the zoo allowed selected schools to hatch some eggs and one of the babies spent time at my house. Enrique La Marca. What is this bizarre fruit fly with wing markings that look remarkably like...
Removal of the invasive Morning Glory vine from the small area occupied by the stick insects was successfully carried out in 2003. The best all in one wireless speaker you'll ever hear: Carabidae 1.
Like heterosexual behavior, it takes time and energy and can be dangerous — and it lacks the potential payoff of procreation. The insects, which can measure up to 6 inches in length, don't resemble sticks so much as tree lobsters, as they are also known. And even though evolutionary science would predict that the beetle pays a price for this appendage, it seems to come absolutely free.
But something was amiss. The AI that lets you alter any face with a quick doodle: The stick bug study could also change the course of the restoration of Lord Howe Island.
