SturgeonsSturgeons - Sturgeons

Sturgeons

Sturgeon (Acipenser) is a genus of freshwater fish, which includes twenty known species from European, Asiatic and North American rivers. They spend a large part of the year in the sea, but periodically migrate to large rivers to deposit their spawn. Read More



The science of disappearing

For inspiration, you could hit the books: In Greek mythology, the goddess Athena wore an invisibility cap during the Trojan War. The same cap helped the half-god Perseus, who wore it to hide from Medusa, a monster who could turn someone to stone just by l Read More

Diving, Rolling, and Floating, Alligator Style

Try to wrestle an alligator underwater, and you'll probably lose. It's not just that the average gator—at 11 feet long and close to 1,000 pounds—is a whole lot bigger than you are. It turns out alligators have a secret weapon when it comes to moving up, d Read More

Walking to Exercise the Brain

Do you think sitting and studying all the time will improve your grades? Think again. Getting some exercise may help, too. New research with older people suggests that taking regular walks helps them pay attention better than if they didn't exercise. Read More

Polly Shouldn't Get a Cracker

It's a boy! That's the sort of news that biologists working to save endangered kakapo parrots in New Zealand probably aren't happy to hear all the time. The population of kakapo parrots currently numbers about 86 birds. Scientists have been trying to find Read More

Sahara Cemetery

Paleontologist Paul Sereno and his team were looking for dinosaur bones in West Africa in 2000 when they stumbled upon something unexpected. Read More

Face values

You know which faces you find attractive, but why? A delicate look, a bright smile, pretty skin, big eyes — it’s hard to resist such features. It’s also hard to define them. Psychologists have been working for years to close in on the age-old question: Wh Read More

Road Bumps

If you've ever been in a car that's traveling down a dirt road, you know how bumpy the ride can be. Dirt roads often develop ridges—and until recently, no one knew why. Read More

White fuzzy mold not as friendly as it looks

When you think of things that are white and fuzzy, usually you think of something cute or nice. But a newly discovered fuzzy, white mold may be making bats in the Northeast U.S. sick. Read More

Seeds of the Future

On an unusual old farm in New York City, workers are stashing away the seeds of the future. In this unlikely place, researchers are putting the seeds from flowering plants and trees in a sleeplike state called suspended animation. Many years from now, ot Read More

Saltwater Fish

Saltwater fish live in bodies of water with a high salt content, such as oceans and salt lakes. They are popular catch in both recreational sport fishing (marlin), and commercial fishing (halibut and tuna.) Read More

Explorer of the Extreme Deep

It's dark at the bottom of the ocean. It's cold down there, too. There's no air to breathe. The water pressure is crushing. There may be creatures that could harm you. Let's face it: The deep sea can be an unpleasant place. Nonetheless, the watery depth Read More

Spiders

Spiders are predatory invertebrate animals with two body segments, eight legs, no chewing mouth parts and no wings. All spiders produce silk, a thin, strong protein strand extruded by the spider from spinnerets. Read More

From Mammoth to Modern Elephant

Thousands of years ago, an elephant-like creature called the woolly mammoth roamed Earth. Except for fossilized bones and remains found trapped in ice, it's now gone. Scientists have long wondered whether the extinct mammoth is more closely related to tod Read More

Finches

"Classic finches" are small to moderately large and have a strong beak, usually conical and in some species very large. All have 12 tail feathers and 9 primaries. Their nests are basket-shaped and built in trees. Read More

Millipedes

The millipede's most obvious feature is its large number of legs. In fact its name is a compound word formed from the Latin roots milli ("thousand") and ped ("foot"). Read More

Saving Wetlands

There's water, and there's land. Somewhere in the middle, there are wetlands. Not totally flooded by water, but not completely dry either, these in-between places rank among the richest ecosystems on Earth. Read More

Decoding a Beverage Jar

It's a good thing that people in one ancient Chinese town didn't always thoroughly rinse out their beverage jars. Now, the leftover liquid that soaked into the pottery more than 8,000 years ago is providing scientists with clues to the past. Read More

Sticking Around with Gecko Tape

In the movie Spider-Man, actor Tobey Maguire makes climbing up walls and hanging out on the ceiling look easy—thanks to special effects. In future movies, though, actors and stunt doubles might really be able to crawl along walls and ceilings. All they'll Read More

Elephant Mimics

It's time to revise the old saying, "Monkey see, monkey do." According to new research, you could also say, "Elephant hear, elephant do." Read More

Sloth Bears

The Sloth bear (Melursus ursinus) is a nocturnal bear with shaggy fur. It inhabits the lowland forests of India, Nepal, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. Read More

Rhinoceros

The rhinoceros (commonly called rhino for short; plural can be either rhinoceros or rhinoceroses) is any of five surviving species of odd-toed ungulates in the family Rhinocerotidae. All five species are native to Africa or Asia. Read More

Brain cells take a break

Scientists have long wanted to know what happens inside the human brain when deep asleep. You may be unconscious, but your brain cells are busy with activity. Neurons, brain cells that conduct electricity, keep your mind humming even while your body is re Read More

Sea Giants and Island Pygmies

The natural world is full of extremes. Elephants and whales are huge. Minnows and mice are small. But it's also possible to find pygmy elephants, enormous rodents, and giant squid. Such surprising size variations have sent scientists scrambling to unders Read More
