Odd microbial partnerships via electrically conductive particles

Human activities have contributed to global warming, leading to increasing erosion of land. This results in conductive minerals being washed into water streams. The inflow of conductive particles can enable unusual electric ...

Researchers subtract a single quantum of light from a laser beam

In a collaboration between Aarhus University and the University of Southern Denmark, researchers have discovered a way to subtract a single quantum of light from a laser beam. This work has recently been published in Physical ...

Migratory birds eye-localized magnetoreception for navigation

Migratory birds use a magnetic compass in their eye for navigation. The involved sensory mechanisms have long remained elusive, but now, researchers have revealed exactly where in the eye avian navigation is situated.

Novel hypothesis on why animals diversified on Earth

Can tumors teach us about animal evolution on Earth? Researchers believe so, and now present a novel hypothesis of why animal diversity increased dramatically on Earth about a half-billion years ago. A biological innovation ...

How does it look when Earth is bombarded with dark matter?

University of Southern Denmark researchers have conducted simulations of dark matter particles hitting the Earth. Physicists believe that Earth collides with uncountable dark matter particles as it hurtles through space. ...

Researchers report a fundamental muscle speed limit

When birds sing, bats echolocate, rattlesnakes rattle, and toadfish hum, they use so-called superfast muscles, the fastest vertebrate muscles known. New research shows that these muscles have reached a maximum speed attainable ...
