Fascinating Flight - Science Nation

Biologist Ken Dial has documented in extraordinary detail how birds are put together and the mechanics of how they take to the air. With support from the National Science Foundation, Dial and his team at the University of Montana Flight Lab use x-rays and high speed video to better understand the mechanics of bird flight. Dial's more than 2,000 flight hours as a pilot in a wide range of aircraft adds another dimension to his research. Perhaps, by mimicking what birds ...

Sounds Of Survival - Science Nation

Many animals communicate with members of their own species using specific sounds. These sounds are behaviorally relevant to the animals because they facilitate important behaviors such as maintaining a territory or finding offspring on return from foraging. With support from the National Science Foundation, Washington State University biologist Christine Portfors is studying how mice process the sounds they hear from each other, and how they associate or assign meaning to those sounds on a behavioral and a neural basis. She ...

Glowing Squid - Science Nation

The Hawaiian bobtail squid and its resident bacterium, Vibrio fischeri, have a powerful and still somewhat mysterious symbiotic relationship. The luminescent bacteria populate a small pouch on the squid's underside called the light organ, and provide a sort of Klingon cloaking device. They produce light at night to offset the squid's shadow and hide it from predators when it approaches the ocean's surface to feed. With support from the National Science Foundation, University of Wisconsin-Madison microbiologist Margaret McFall-Ngai studies this ...

Sleep Deprived Kids - Science Nation

Research tells us that children in general need to get more sleep, but now new findings indicate that kids from lower income families suffer more from sleep deprivation than middle and upper income kids. Auburn University psychologist Mona El-Sheikh wants to know why. With support from the National Science Foundation, she and her team are studying children's sleeping patterns and how lack of sleep correlates with the stress factors in their lives and their ability to learn. El-Sheikh suspects that ...

Leaf-cutter Ants - Science Nation

Leaf cutter ants could be called the overachievers of the insect world. They are farmers, medicine makers, and green energy producers. With support from the National Science Foundation, bacteriologist Cameron Currie studies the complex evolutionary relationships between the ants, the fungi they cultivate and eat, and the bacteria that influence this symbiosis. At the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Currie works with the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center on campus to explore how the ants manage to degrade cellulose. Her goal is ...

Mount St. Helens: Rising From The Ashes - Science Nation

The area of Southern Washington State around the Mt. St. Helens Volcano has been nearly devoid of life since the 1980 eruption -- making it a biology lab like no other as scientists observe it springing back to life. The regenerating ecosystem offers biologist John Bishop of Washington State University in Vancouver a chance to study what happens as the mountain springs back to life. He and his team are learning that recovery of an ecosystem is unpredictable and fragile. With ...

Science Behind Bars - Science Nation

In the Pacific Northwest, people are stripping moss for the horticultural trade at such an alarming rate that it's now illegal to harvest it. Ecologist Nalini Nadkarni knows that moss is a key component to the eco-system of the region, which makes it important to study. But this globe-trotting scientist at The Evergreen State College needed a lot of help recording research data from some folks who have much more time than she does. Where better to find potential research ...
