Data confirm link between respiratory stress and fish reproduction

A consistent metabolic ratio found across 133 Chinese marine and freshwater fish species provides new evidence in support of the idea that fish become sexually active—and spawn for the first time—in response to growth-induced ...

New method to produce composites with 'shape memory'

Skoltech researchers have investigated a promising type of composite material in terms of their shape memory behavior—how they resume their original shape following deformation if exposed to the right temperature or other ...

Programmable structures from the printer

Researchers at the University of Freiburg and the University of Stuttgart have developed a new process for producing movable, self-adjusting materials systems with standard 3D printers. These systems can undergo complex shape ...

Water droplets become hydrobots by adding magnetic beads

Using a piece of magnet, researchers have designed a simple system that can control the movement of a small puddle of water, even when it's upside down. The new liquid manipulation strategy, described in the journal Cell ...

Ion-selective smart porous membranes

A research group has developed an ion-selective smart porous membrane that can respond to outer stimuli, potentially paving the way for new applications in molecular separation and sensing applications.

Sensing bacterial communication

They may not have mouths or even vocal chords, but tiny organisms do communicate with one another. A Florida Tech study may give researchers and students further insight into that process.
