Editor’s Selections: Squirrel frogs, rescue ants, and the coffee bean borer

Editor's Selections 21 Comments
By Vincent Racaniello

Vincent RacanielloI’m Vincent Racaniello, a biology editor at researchblogging.org. Each week I highlight several notable posts from molecular and cellular biology and virology. My musings on viruses, viral disease, and viral vaccines can be found at virology blog.

  • In choosing a pond, squirrel frogs weigh the risk of death against the opportunity for growth, with the goal of trying to achieve the lowest possible mortality/growth value.
  • Many animals help each other but actual rescue attempts are rarely documented. In a French laboratory, a team of ants is attempting a daring rescue.
  • Temperatures in coffee-growing countries are moving toward the optimum for the coffee bean borer. This pest could be problematic in Colombia, with its nearly year-round availability of coffee cherries.

I’ll be back next Friday with more selections.

Those sensors with some surveillance cameras change in contrast, while others make use of a beam with infra-red (IR) light, specially in low light. Higher spec cameras from time to time use a blend of both techniques and likely have Face Priority AF where the digital camera can ‘See’ a new face while keeping your focus only upon that.
