Fish courtship pheromone uses the brain's smell pathway
Research has revealed that a molecule involved in fish reproduction activates the brain via the nose. The pheromone is released by female zebrafish and sensed by smell receptors in the noses of the males. The neural pathway and brain areas involved in transforming this molecular messenger into courtship behavior in fish were also identified by the researchers.

Saving north america's salamanders, newts
The fate of the world’s richest biodiversity of salamanders and newts is in the hands of pet owners across North America, warns a researcher, due to the threat of salamander chytrid disease that infects both salamanders and newts with near total lethality.

Flatworms left in sunlight spur investigations into rare metabolic disorders
(eLife ) A type of flatworm could be a new weapon in the hunt for better ways to treat a group of diseases that can cause extreme sensitivity to light, facial hair growth, and hallucinations, according to a study published in the journal eLife.

Honeybees pick up 'astonishing' number of pesticides via non-crop plants
(Purdue University) A Purdue University study shows that honeybees collect the vast majority of their pollen from plants other than crops, even in areas dominated by corn and soybeans, and that pollen is consistently contaminated with a host of agricultural and urban pesticides throughout the growing season.

Children's digestive health across Europe in crisis
(Spink Health) 'Paediatric Digestive Health Across Europe', commissioned by United European Gastroenterology, highlights how the current health burden and economic pressure of pediatric digestive health issues, in particular the increasing levels of childhood obesity, have become a pandemic issue throughout the continent.

Next-generation gene sequencing helps diagnose rare diseases in newborns

The use of next-generation gene sequencing in newborns in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) may improve the diagnosis of rare diseases and deliver results more quickly to anxious families, according to new research in CMAJ (Canadian Medical Association Journal).

Effects of maternal smoking continue long after birth

Early exposure to nicotine can trigger widespread genetic changes that affect formation of connections between brain cells long after birth, a new Yale-led study has found. The finding helps explains why maternal smoking has been linked to behavioral changes such as attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder, addiction and conduct disorder.

Research explains the role of the gene BRCA1 in DNA repair

Scientists at the University of Birmingham are a step closer to understanding the role of the gene BRCA1. Changes in this gene are associated with a high risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer.

A multispecies approach to fish management in the North Sea
As fish overexploitation becomes more and more of a concern, stakeholders are constantly looking for novel resource management strategies and more accurate forecasting techniques. The GADCAP project has made an important contribution by test-driving the multispecies approach to fisheries management in the Flemish Cap.

What birds' attitudes to litter tell us about their ability to adapt
Urban birds are less afraid of litter than their country cousins, according to a new study, which suggests they may learn that litter in cities is not dangerous. The research could help birds to adapt to urban settings better, helping them to survive increasing human encroachment on their habitats.

How fisheries impact behavioural evolution in Atlantic cod
As seen in other animal species, fish individuals tend to react differently to a new situation. In the case of human harvest, the boldest individuals are more likely to get caught, leaving only the fearful and cautious ones to breed. But does it mean that future generations of fish will become harder to catch? This is one of the questions the BE-FISH project tried to answer.
