Science Bulletins: Climate Change Forces Species Uphill
On a typical mountain, every 1000 meters of elevation increase brings a temperature drop of 6°C. In the tropics, some species have evolved to live only in the cool-temperature oases of mountain peaks. It is these high-elevation species that stand a lot to lose as global warming heats up their habitats. AMNH researchers now suggest that climate change is already driving reptiles and amphibians that live on Madagascar's highest mountains toward extinction. Chris Raxworthy, an Associate Curator o
Science Bulletins: Extinct Cave Bear DNA Decoded
Scientists have traditionally looked to fossil evidence of extinct species to understand how Earth's plant and animal life evolved from ancestral forms. By comparing the body structures of species past and present, they can construct family trees that represent change over time. In recent decades, DNA analysis has emerged as another powerful tool to decipher evolutionary relationships. So far, fragments of DNA from about 50 extinct species have been extracted from body parts preserved in permafr
Science Bulletins: American Chestnuts: Back on the Home Turf
Majestic American chestnut trees were once a foundation species—abundant and influential—in the eastern woodlands of North America. But in the early 1900's, a lethal fungus called chestnut blight decimated this ecologically and economically important tree in its native range. In 1983, a group of scientists organized the American Chestnut Foundation with a plan to restore the American chestnut to its native range by breeding it with blight-resistant chestnut species. After decades of work, hy
Science Bulletins: Light Pollution—Beyond the Glare
Scientists have long understood that artificial light can disrupt wildlife that takes cues from natural light. It's becoming increasingly clear that light reflected off shiny artificial surfaces such as cars, buildings, and roads can also disrupt animal behavior—sometimes fatally. A new review of research on light pollution by a team of Hungarian and American scientists describes a new concern with polarized light pollution. When light bounces off reflective surfaces, it can become polarized,
Driving Innovation: Detroit Comes to Silicon Valley - An Evening with Bill Ford
[Recorded: June 18, 2012] History shows that the evolutionary road of a century-old company often leads directly through Silicon Valley. Ford Motor Company, founded in 1903, is now tapping directly into the Valley's brand of innovation and design with the opening of a new research lab. What is the aim of Ford's entry into this epicenter of creativity, and how does it fit with Ford's strategic future? Bill Ford, executive chairman, has been an outspoken advocate of Ford's embrace of new technolo
