It is common knowledge that the longer humans spend in space, the longer it takes them to regain muscle strength upon their return to earth. The biggest question is, why. With the help of Caenorhabditis elegans, one Texas ...
Research at the University of Adelaide's Waite campus has shed light on the action of the serious agricultural pest, cereal cyst nematode, which will help progress improved resistant varieties.
The velvet worm is a slow-moving, unassuming creature. With its soft body, probing antennae, and stubby legs, it looks like a slug on stilts as it creeps along damp logs in tropical climates.

The lowly roundworm is the star of an ambitious Rice University project to measure the toxicity of nanoparticles.
Giant pandas aren't dying like they used to. In the early 1980s, starvation accounted for more than nine out of ten deaths. However, over the past three decades a parasitic gut worm has replaced that as the dominant killer.
New research has shed light on the complex exchange of parasitic worms between wildlife, rats and humans.
Leaving heavier Merino ewes untreated for worms while treating their skinnier counterparts may help combat drench-resistant worms, research suggests.
