  • Micro-geographic shift between negligible and actuarial senescence in a wild snake

     

    Researchers used 37 years of mark-recapture data in two nearby habitats inside a meadow viper Vipera ursinii population to quantify life expectancies, generation times and the shape of actuarial and reproductive senescence.

Not just honeybees: predatory habits of Vespa velutina (Hymenoptera: Vespidae) in France

Our results suggest that V. velutina is a generalist opportunistic predator targeting mostly locally abundant prey. While the species may have an impact on honeybees, its generalist, opportunistic behaviour on abundant insects suggests a minor impact on wild species.

Chromosomal scale assembly of parasitic wasp genome reveals symbiotic virus colonization

Results, published in Communications Biology , suggest that the evolution of a virus integrated into a eukaryotic genome is totally different when it is useful to the organism that carries it.
