Today's biological science headlines from the sources selected by our team:

Polar bears may survive ice melt, with or without seals
As climate change accelerates ice melt in the Arctic, polar bears may find caribou and snow geese replacing seals as an important food source, shows a recent study. The research is based on new computations incorporating caloric energy from terrestrial food sources and indicates that the bears' extended stays on land may not be as grim as previously suggested.

Plants also suffer from stress
High salt in soil dramatically stresses plant biology and reduces the growth and yield of crops. Now researchers have found specific proteins that allow plants to grow better under salt stress, and may help breed future generations of more salt-tolerant crop plants.

The million year old monkey: New evidence confirms the antiquity of fossil primate
An international team of scientists have dated a species of fossil monkey found across the Caribbean to just over one million years old. The lead researcher of this study said that the dating of the limestone surrounding the fossils, said the question of the age of primate fossils from this region has puzzled scientists since the days of Darwin and Wallace.

UTIA professors help launch new online wildlife disease reporting system
(University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture) Researchers with the University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture were instrumental in creating a new online portal for scientists studying a disease that is threatening the global populations of amphibians, reptiles and fish. The new portal is called the Global Ranavirus Reporting System. Ranaviruses are emerging pathogens capable of causing systemic hemorrhaging in amphibians, reptiles and fish that has been characterized as the 'Ebola of ectothermic vertebrate species.'

One step closer to cheaper antivenom

Researchers involved in an international collaboration across six institutions, including the University of Copenhagen and the National Aquarium of Denmark (Den BlÄ Planet), have successfully identified the exact composition of sea snake venom, which makes the future development of synthetic antivenoms more realistic. Currently, sea snake anitvenom costs nearly USD 2000, yet these new findings could result in a future production of synthetic antivenoms for as little as USD 10-100.

X-rays reveal fossil secrets

A sophisticated imaging technique has allowed scientists to virtually peer inside a 10-million-year-old sea urchin, uncovering a treasure trove of hidden fossils.

Innovative visualization technology to help strengthen climate change action

Data scientists at the University of Warwick are starting a new project using innovative visualisation techniques, which they believe could transform how evidence is used to inform climate change adaptation initiatives.

Scientists map genes at work in human embryos' earliest days
A team of scientists in Sweden has broken open the genetic recipe for a human embryo's first three days of development, chronicling what happens in the crucial hours that follow the union of egg and sperm.

Climate change could leave Pacific Northwest amphibians high and dry
Far above the wildfires raging in Washington's forests, a less noticeable consequence of this dry year is taking place in mountain ponds. The minimal snowpack and long summer drought that have left the Pacific Northwest lowlands parched also affect the region's amphibians due to loss of mountain pond habitat.

Polar bears may survive ice melt, with or without seals
As climate change accelerates ice melt in the Arctic, polar bears may find caribou and snow geese replacing seals as an important food source, shows a recent study published in the journal PLOS ONE. The research, by Linda Gormezano and Robert Rockwell at the American Museum of Natural History, is based on new computations incorporating caloric energy from terrestrial food sources and indicates that the bears' extended stays on land may not be as grim as previously suggested.
