Climate change puts endangered African antelopes in ’double jeopardy’
Climate change will cause a disproportionate decline in African antelopes with the smallest geographic ranges, placing the most-threatened taxa in 'double jeopardy,' according to new University of Liverpool research. The findings are the first to suggest that animals already living in the most-restricted areas will be hardest hit as the climate shifts in the coming decades, and show that several antelope species are in need of urgent conservation action to avoid extinction.

Winds a quarter the speed of light spotted leaving mysterious binary systems
Astronomers have observed two black holes in nearby galaxies devouring their companion stars at an extremely high rate, and spitting out matter at a quarter the speed of light. This is the first time we've seen winds streaming away from ultra-luminous x-ray sources. Ciro Pinto Two black holes in nearby galaxies have been observed devouring their companion stars at a rate exceeding classically understood limits, and in the process, kicking out matter into surrounding space at astonishing speeds of around a quarter the speed of light.

Teenage boys in India given better food than girls
A study of the diets of boys and girls living in two states in India has found that by the age of 15, boys are likely to be eating a wider variety of foods than girls. The gender gap in diet appears to be particularly marked in families that have high aspirations for their children's education. The study by the University of Oxford and Imperial College London, says adolescent girls are less likely than boys to consume those costlier foods that are rich in proteins, vitamins and micronutrients necessary for their healthy development.

Nine things we have learned from one of ecology’s largest field experiments
Researchers studying a logged forest in Borneo have uncovered surprising findings from rare species to trends of ecosystem resilience. Tropical rainforests support ecosystems of rich biodiversity; however, they are also prime targets for logging and conversion to agricultural land, which have brought them under severe threat.
