Human-made landscape promotes coexistence of two normally separated Andean warblers

The two species and their habitats at the study site in Ecuador (Photos by J. Nowakowski). The higher elevation species, the Spectacled Whitestart, chooses fragmented forests with few trees and with open spaces comprising patches of bushes and meadows. The lower elevation species, the Slate-throated Whitestart, chooses dark dense montane forest stands. Both species forage […]

Molecule that promotes muscle health when magnetised

Associate Professor Alfredo Franco-Obregón and his team from the NUS Institute for Health Innovation and Technology examined how low amplitude magnetic fields may be used to enhance muscle metabolism. The images on the screen show the cells of two types of muscles—the blue fibres (left) are rapidly fatiguing muscles, the green fibres (right) are slowly […]
