Research reveals impacts of climate change on migrating mule deer

Research reveals impacts of climate change on migrating mule deer

When drought reshuffles the green-up of habitats that mule deer migrate across, it dramatically shortens the annual foraging bonanza they rely on. That is the main finding of a new University of Wyoming study, which...

Study: Building trades’ risky drinking problems

As a steep economic downturn looms, drug and alcohol experts are calling for more reduction measures to combat risky drinking behaviour in the construction sector. In spite of workplace safety issues, a study of more...
Study: AI predicts patients at highest risk for severe pain, increased opioid use post-surgery

Study: AI predicts patients at highest risk for severe pain, increased opioid use post-surgery

Artificial intelligence (AI) used in machine learning models can predict which patients are at highest risk for severe pain after surgery, and help determine who would most benefit from personalized pain management plans that...
Study: More crickets and katydids 'singing in the suburbs'

Study: More crickets and katydids ‘singing in the suburbs’

The songs that crickets and katydids sing at night to attract mates can help in monitoring and mapping their populations, according to Penn State researchers, whose study of Orthoptera species in central Pennsylvania also...
Study: Snapshot of exploding oxygen

Study: Snapshot of exploding oxygen

"The smaller the particle, the bigger the hammer." This rule from particle physics, which looks inside the interior of atomic nuclei using gigantic accelerators, also applies to this research. In order to "X-ray" a...

Scientists join Riverdance to investigate extreme demands of elite dance

SCIENTISTS have launched a pioneering study with the cast of Riverdance to examine the demands of elite-level live dancing. The investigation, led by the University of Chichester, aims to understand the physiological exertion of professional...
Study: Nerve finding unravels gut mysteries

Study: Nerve finding unravels gut mysteries

Scientists at Flinders University have, for the first time, identified a specific type of sensory nerve ending in the gut and how these may ‘talk’ to the spinal cord, communicating pain or discomfort to...

Study: Higher-order topology found in 2D crystal

Over the last decade, the field of condensed matter physics has experienced a golden age with the discovery of new materials and properties, and related technologies being developed at breakneck speed thanks to the...
Study: Potential drug treatment for particular type of lung-cancer

Study: Potential drug treatment for particular type of lung-cancer

The effectiveness of cancer treatment is often hampered by cancer cells being heterogeneous. This is the case for EGFR-mutated lung cancer: drugs based on biomolecules of a type known as tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI)...
Study: New abdominal aortic aneurysm genes identified, could help pinpoint those at risk

Study: New abdominal aortic aneurysm genes identified, could help pinpoint those at risk

A veteran's study identified more than a dozen genes associated with abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) that could be used to better identify people at risk for the often-deadly condition, according to new research published...
