Wolf (Canis lupus), also known as the gray wolf, timber wolf, western wolf, and its other subspecies is a canine native to the wilderness and remote areas of Eurasia and North America. It is the largest extant member of its family, with males averaging 43–45 kg (95–99 lb) and females 36–38.5 kg (79–85 lb). Like the red wolf, it is distinguished from other Canis species by its larger size and less pointed features, particularly on the ears and muzzle. Its winter fur is long and bushy and predominantly a mottled gray in color, although nearly pure white, red, and brown to black also occur. — Wikipedia

Science

Biology is the scientific study of life. Biologists study life at multiple levels of organization, from the molecular biology of a cell to the anatomy and physiology of plants and animals, and evolution of populations. Biologists also study and classify the various forms of life, from prokaryotic organisms such as archaea and bacteria to eukaryotic organisms such as protists, fungi, plants, and animals. — Wikipedia

  • Welsh 'weird wonder' fossils add piece to puzzle...
    on November 15, 2022 at 4:29 pm

    The most famous fossils from the Cambrian explosion of animal life over half a billion years ago are very unlike their modern counterparts. These "weird wonders," such as the five-eyed Opabinia with its distinctive frontal proboscis, and the fearsome apex predator Anomalocaris with its radial mouthparts and spiny feeding appendages, have become icons in popular culture.

    The James Webb Space Telescope Early Release Science (ERS) program—first released on July 12th, 2022—has proven to be a treasure trove of scientific finds and breakthroughs. Among the many areas of research it is enabling, there's the study of resolved stellar populations (RSTs), which was the subject of ERS 1334. This refers to large groups of stars close enough that individual stars can be discerned but far enough apart that telescopes can capture many of them at once. A good example is […]

    According to current knowledge, personality is determined by genetic predisposition and environmental influences. If genetically identical individuals grow up under identical conditions, are these individuals completely identical? So far, twin studies have reached their limits in answering this fundamental question.

    Colgate University is returning to the Oneida Indian Nation more than 1,500 items once buried with ancestral remains—a collection of culturally significant items that includes pendants, pots, bells and turtle shell rattles, some dating back 400 years.

    on November 7, 2022 at 1:37 pm

    A team of researchers at Umeå University has discovered that an enzyme in human cells has probably evolved from an ancient single-celled organism. The enzyme's unique properties mean that it could be used as a building block in the design of new enzymes, for example in processing wood raw materials. The discoveries are presented in Science Advances.
