Deaf moth evolves sound-production as a warning to outwit its predator
Deaf moth evolves sound-production as a warning to outwit its predator
A genus of deaf moth has evolved to develop an extraordinary sound-producing structure in its wings to evade its primary predator the bat. The finding, made by researchers from the University of Bristol and Natural History Museum, is described in Scientific Reports today [Tuesday 5 February]. It's already known that some species of moth have evolved a range of defensive mechanisms to evade insectivorous bats' highly-tuned echolocation (biosonar) detection skills.

Growing bio-inspired shapes with hundreds of tiny robots
Hundreds of small robots can work in a team to create biology-inspired shapes - without an underlying master plan, purely based on local communication and movement. This is what researchers from Barcelona working with the Bristol Robotics Laboratory found when they introduced the biological principles of self-organisation to swarm robotics.

Moths survive bat predation through acoustic camouflage fur
Moths survive bat predation through acoustic camouflage fur
Moths are a mainstay food source for bats, which use echolocation (biological sonar) to hunt their prey. Scientists from the University of Bristol are studying how moths have evolved passive defences over millions of years to resist their primary predators. While some moths have evolved ears that detect the ultrasonic calls of bats, many types of moths remain deaf.

Tiny crustacean had a heart more than 400 million years ago
An Imperial researcher is part of an international team that has discovered a rare and exceptionally well-preserved crustacean. The fossil is a new species of ostracod, a relative of crabs and shrimps, and is just a few millimetres long. Exceptional preservation This particular fossil preserves not just the animal's hard shell, but also its limbs, eyes, gut and gills - soft parts that are extremely rarely preserved.
