The tiny treeshrew defies a pair of evolutionary rules

The tiny treeshrew defies a pair of evolutionary rules

Science
Jan. 5 (UPI) -- The tiny treeshrew is a breaker of evolutionary rules, specifically of the ecogeographical type.According to a new paper published this week in the journal Ecology and Evolution, the common treeshrew, Tupaia glis, flouts both the island rule and Bergmann's rule, a pair of rules describing expected geographical variation within a species.According to the island rule, specimens of small mammals living on islands tend to evolve larger bodies than their relatives on the mainland. Larger mammals tend to evolve smaller bodies on islands.Bergmann's rules describe the tendency for populations of a species to evolve larger bodies in colder climates, among higher latitudes, while populations closer to the equator, living in warmer climates, develop smaller bodies.Researchers measured...
Tiny ocean creatures can shred a plastic bag into 1.75 million pieces

Tiny ocean creatures can shred a plastic bag into 1.75 million pieces

Science
Dec. 8 (UPI) -- The ocean's miniature inhabitants can shred a small plastic bag -- the type used to hold groceries -- into 1.75 million microscopic fragments, according to a news study.When scientists from University of Plymouth in England fed a plastic bag to Orchestia gammarellus, a tiny species of amphipod abundant in the coastal waters of Northern Europe, they were surprised at the rate at which the trash was consumed and broken down.But while the amphipods broke down the plastic bag with tremendous speed and efficiency, they didn't exactly remove the trash from the environment. They simply turned one piece of plastic pollution into a lot of tiny pieces of plastic pollution -- 1.75 million microscopic fragments, to be exact.The findings -- detailed this week in the journal Marine Pollu...
Tiny robots could soon diagnose, treat hard to reach parts of the body

Tiny robots could soon diagnose, treat hard to reach parts of the body

Health
Nov. 22 (UPI) -- Tiny remote-controlled robots made of algae could soon navigate their way to hard-to-reach locations in the body. Scientists say the robots could be used to diagnose and treat diseases like cancer.Each tiny robot measures just a few micrometers long, roughly the size of a blood cell. They're composed of algae cells coated in magnetic particles. The algae bots can be directed to the nooks and crannies of the human body using a magnet.Bioluminescent protein markers could reveal the location of the bots near the surface of the skin, and magnetic resonance imaging could track their positioning in deep tissue.Scientists at the Chinese University of Hong Kong and the University of Edinburgh tested the robots ability to swim through bodily fluids like gastric fluid and diluted bl...
