Do Bee Wings Adapt for Flight in Urban Environments?


TL;DR: It is found that, although the wing morphology suggests a limited dispersal ability in Andrena barbara (Barbara's Miner), the urban landscape did not significantly explain how wing shape or size vary, suggesting that urban habitats may potentially serve an important role in bee conservation.

Diet Diversity Is Associated with Beta but not Alpha Diversity of Pika Gut Microbiota


author keywords: diet; gut microbiota; plateau pikas; alpha diversity; beta diversity
TL;DR: This study is the first time to highlight the relationship between diet and gut microbiota composition in wild pikas on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and suggests that the species richness within individual gut microbiota does not linearly increase with diet diversity, whereas those individuals that are more similar in diet composition harbor more similar gut microbiota.

The Evolution of Stomach Acidity and Its Relevance to the Human Microbiome

PLOS ONE, 10(7), e0134116.

By: D. Beasley n, A. Koltz*, J. Lambert*, N. Fierer* & R. Dunn n

Ed(s): X. Li

MeSH headings : Animals; Biological Evolution; Birds; Food Microbiology; Gastric Acid / physiology; Gastrointestinal Microbiome; Herbivory; Host-Pathogen Interactions; Humans; Hydrogen-Ion Concentration; Mammals; Phylogeny; Stomach / microbiology; Stomach / physiology; Symbiosis
TL;DR: Comparisons of stomach acidity across trophic groups in mammal and bird taxa show that scavengers and carnivores have significantly higher stomach acidities compared to herbivores or carnivores feeding on phylogenetically distant prey such as insects or fish. (via Semantic Scholar)
