How to use advanced editing tools without ruining your photos

There’s something utterly wrong with this photo. (Harry Guinness/) With great editing power comes great responsibility—the more easily you can change things about your photos, the more carefully you have to do it. Over the past few years image editing tools have gotten more advanced, more user-friendly, and, in some cases, even completely automatic. Now, […]

New tools will help ecologists predict when species may be at risk — ScienceDaily

More than 3,000 animal species in the world today are considered endangered, with hundreds more categorized as vulnerable. Currently, ecologists don’t have reliable tools to predict when a species may become at risk. A new paper published in Nature Ecology and Evolution, “Management implications of long transients in ecological systems,” focuses on the transient nature […]

Archaeology: Neanderthal thumbs better adapted to holding tools with handles

Neanderthal thumbs were better adapted to holding tools in the same way that we hold a hammer, according to a paper published in Scientific Reports. The findings suggest that Neanderthals may have found precision grips — where objects are held between the tip of the finger and thumb — more challenging than power ‘squeeze’ grips, […]

New migration maps serve as tools to help big game in West

Credit: CC0 Public Domain The life-or-death journey made by mule deer during the second-longest big game migration in North America came down to their ability to squeeze through a fence—a discovery made by scientists using wildlife GPS tracking techniques to map animal migrations in the West in unprecedented detail. The resulting atlas of migration corridors […]

Creating better diagnostic tools with light scattering nanoparticles

Recent advanced in nanoparticle-based SERS imaging has led to better diagnoses of diseases like cancer, and improvements in image-guided tumor surgeries. Since the discovery of the X-ray more than a century ago, the rapid development of radiological diagnosis welcomed a new era for medical imaging. Through innovative new technologies, not only have we enabled improved […]
