Powerful, deadly, ultra-fast jaw trap bite

Small changes in shape can lead to innovative breakthroughs in function, a new study reveals. Researchers have discovered how an ant-jaw trap – a powerful, ultra-fast and complex evolutionary trait – evolved from a simpler ancestral jaw mechanism. The study found that the jaw-catching mechanism evolved 7-10 times independently worldwide The trap-jaw function managed to develop only with minor changes …

New way to measure Antarctic snowfall helps predict ice sheet survival

A new way to study Antarctic weather, not from the Earth’s surface but from space, reveals a phenomenon that could help determine how quickly a huge ice sheet is melting in a warming world. The study, published Tuesday in the Geophysical Research Letters, focuses on “atmospheric rivers,” huge belts of water vapor that form over tropical and subtropical oceans and …
