Science News Video: These carnivorous plants won the evolutionary jackpot

Play Video: These carnivorous plants won the evolutionary jackpot


Carnivorous plants have evolved all kinds of traps and tricks to capture their prey, from the snapping jaws of Venus flytraps to the slippery walls of pitcher plants. Although we often think of evolution as a process driven by strong selective pressure and big payoffs, researchers recently found that doesn’t always have to be the case. Biologists Ulrike Bauer and Guillaume Chomicki describe how a springboard-like lid evolved independently in two different pitcher plant species on opposite sides of the world through a process they call spontaneous coincidence. **Dr. Guillaume Chomicki's current affiliation is at Durham University.

Weight loss medications like Ozempic and Wegovy are examples of GLP-1 receptor agonist drugs. By mimicking a hormone produced in the body, this class of drugs has proven to be an effective way to treat diabetes and, more recently, obesity. This year, clinical trials revealed their beneficial effects on other chronic conditions that can be associated with obesity like heart failure and kidney disease. Despite their widespread and growing use, GLP-1 receptor agonist drugs were by no means an overnight success – decades of developments, unexpected discoveries, and some notable failures all paved the way to the 2023 Breakthrough of the Year.

The Byssus End of the Mussel. In order to withstand the crashing waves, mussels have strong filaments called byssal threads to help them stick to rocky surfaces with surprising strength. When needed, the bivalves can also release these threads with seemingly little effort. Deeper investigation and imaging revealed that friction between cilia in the living tissue and the nonliving byssal threads help the mussel hold tight. Injections with serotonin, which is known to decrease cilia activity in mussels, made the byssus easier to remove, indicating that some kind of neurotransmitter signal may be involved in the quick release of the byssus. This surprising phenomenon has researchers wondering if some version of this tight hold and easy release could become part of future biomedical implants.

Read the paper: https://www.science.org/doi/10.1126/science.adf3345 After an oil spill, humans rush to the scene to minimize impacts on the environment. But if the oil sticks around long enough, nature’s responders start to roll in. Bacteria such as Alcanivorax borkumensis thrive in these settings, using the components of petroleum as a source of energy and carbon. Now, a group of biophysicists has observed exactly how this bacterium breaks oil down. When Alcanivorax is exposed to oil for a longer period of time, it forms a biofilm around oil that can push and pull the oil’s surface into branching tubes. Watch the video to learn how this transformation facilitates a faster feast for these oil-loving bacteria.

In field experiments in Costa Rica, researchers used high-speed infrared cameras to track insect flight around artificial lights. When insects flew over a light source, they routinely turned on an axis and dove toward the ground (shown). These insects kept their backs to the light, even if they crashed. Other insects flew in circles around the light or flew up in a steep climb, losing speed until they couldn’t fly any higher. The observations suggest that artificial light messes with how insects orient themselves to the ground.

A sprinkler that sucks water in instead of spewing it out rotates in the opposite direction as a normal sprinkler, physicists report. Viewing the innards of such a sprinkler was key to understanding why. Within the sprinkler, two jets form, visualized here by using lasers to illuminate microparticles added to the water. In this high-speed video, the water is sucked into the ends of the S-shaped tube (one end visible at top left) and enters the inside of the sprinkler (center) where two horizontal jets form. Those jets collide and emerge at an angle, creating four asymmetric vortices. The sprinkler was fixed in place for this video, but when released, it spins clockwise.

A thieving honeybee (Apis mellifera) snags pollen off the body of a red-tailed bumblebee (Bombus lapidarius). Because honeybees aren't good at collecting pollen from woolly thistle, the bumblebees — which get pollen stuck on their hairy bodies — appear to be too good a target to pass up. This behavior, previously seen in several areas in the United States, has now been observed in Italy. Read more: https://www.sciencenews.org/article/honeybees-italy-steal-pollen-bumblebees Video: T.

A video from a thermal imaging camera (temperature scale on the right) shows a numbat walking into a warmer area from a cooler area. The surface temperature of some parts of a numbat’s body can increase to 35° Celsius or more, suggesting the animals rapidly heat up in the sun. The finding suggests that, as the climate warms, numbats may need to keep their termite foraging forays short to avoid overheating.
