Many insects and plant species carry beneficial bacteria, which provide a variety of services. Some provide nutrients, such as those living in aphids, the green and black fly which plague garden plants. Others help their animal hosts defend against parasites. However, while animals would die without some bacteria, they would hardly notice the absence of others. Why do we get this variation?... View more »

What's the world's longest endurance event? Le Mans takes 24 hours. The Marathon des Sables, billed as the toughest footrace on earth, is over in six days. The Vendee Globe round the world yacht race can take 150 or so days.

These are all considered defining tests of human endurance: but vaccine development takes nine years. We speak to Oxford scientists with a wealth of vaccine knowledge... View more »

The tardigrade, an eight-legged micro-animal, will survive until the Sun dies - meaning it will be the Earth's last survivor. A new study has shown that the tiny creatures will survive the risk of extinction from all astrophysical catastrophes, and be around for at least 10 billion years – far longer than the human race. Tardigrades are the toughest, most resilient form of life on earth, able... View more »

Conserving nature is not just about animals. When we think of conservation, many of us think of it as the science of saving endangered species, from black rhinos to blue whales. But that’s only a small part of a far bigger picture.

Species are only a small part of biodiversity, ecosystems and habitats - on land, and in our rivers and seas. And, as the researchers at the University of... View more »
