    New study shows that the roots used by three close species of microscopic Daphnia crustaceans to settle across the territory of Northern Eurasia differed greatly. This findings shed light on how the continental freshwater fauna was formed. They are published in PLOS ONE. Daphnia galeata is a common species of plankton in the lakes of northern Eurasia [Credit: Elena Zuykova, Institute of Systematics and Ecology of Animals SB...

    More than 85 well-preserved dinosaur footprints - made by at least seven different species - have been uncovered in East Sussex, representing the most diverse and detailed collection of these trace fossils from the Cretaceous Period found in the UK to date. A small theropod (carnivore) footprint [Credit: Neil Davies and Anthony Shillito]The footprints were identified by University of Cambridge researchers between 2014 and 2018,...

    An international team of palaeontologists, which includes the University of Bristol, has discovered that the flying reptiles, pterosaurs, actually had four kinds of feathers, and these are shared with dinosaurs - pushing back the origin of feathers by some 70 million years. A reconstruction of the studied Daohugou pterosaur, with four different feather types  over its head, neck, body, and wings, and a generally ginger-brown...

    In 2003, the Human Genome Project revealed to the world the three billion chemical units within human DNA. Since that time, scientists have designed many ways to organize and assess this overwhelmingly large amount of information. Now, scientists at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) have determined that evolution can help guide these efforts. Even as they’ve struggled to highlight parts of the human genome worth investigating,...

    The VFMA exhibition catalogue for 'The Horse in Ancient Greek Art' has been reviewed by Carl Shaw in BMCR. The review does not consider the wider issues of the histories of the objects, with previous handlers including Nicolas Koutoulakis, Walter M. Banko in Montreal, Edoardo Almagià, and Fritz Bürki.

    These issues have been discussed in some detail in the Journal of Art Crime earlier this year [see previous post].

    Alpheios Reading Tools Version 2.1.0.19, December 2018

    Alpheios Logo
    This is the first release of the Alpheios Reading Tools for Safari. The Chrome and Firefox extensions have been updated as well.
    In addition to the support for Safari, the following features are included in this release:
    • The Inflection Table Browser has been moved to its own tab, separate from inflection tables for query results.
    • Issues with the Alpheios popup and panel styles being affected by the underlying page styles have been fixed.
    • Improved handling of panel state upon page navigation.
    • Additiional Latin irregular verb inflection tables.
    Alpheios builds evidence-based, open-source software to support worldwide study of classical languages and literatures.
    We will help people learn how to learn languages as efficiently and enjoyably as possible, and in a way that best helps them understand their own literary heritage and culture, and the literary heritage and culture of other peoples throughout history.
    Our initial focus is on classical literature in languages no longer spoken, such as Latin and ancient Greek. The influence of these classics, like the river Alpheios, still runs like a subterranean stream deep beneath the contemporary world, as artists and thinkers continue to draw inspiration from them.
    Next priorities include supporting more languages, including Persian, Syriac and Hebrew, and adding audio and imagery as well as language learning aids and games. Longer term goals include using the Alpheios platform to collect big data on how different individuals can best learn the historical languages (those without living native speakers) and appreciate their classical literature, and how this data can be interpreted neurophysiologically to shed light on human literacy and response to literature in general.
    The Alpheios project uses resources from and is grateful to the following projects:

    PLOVDIV, BULGARIA—According to a report in The Sofia Globe, a street from the Roman city of Philippopolis has been unearthed in Plovdiv’s Central Square. The street is thought to have been built in the third century A.D. of syenite, a coarse-grained local stone similar to granite. Archaeologist Maya Martinova said the roadway led to the ancient agora—a square line with shops on three sides. Traces of a sewerage system and a pipeline made of pottery were also uncovered. To read about another recent discovery in Bulgaria, go to “Mirror, Mirror.”

    The Annual Philippine Studies Conference SOAS focuses its 2019 edition on the southern island of Mindanao. It seeks to gather academics, policymakers, cultural workers, artists and scientists to map the contours of Mindanao’s struggle for peace after centuries of violent strife. This struggle is complex and, as an object of study, extremely dense. Its dimensions are simultaneously global, national, and local —and these layers are often collapsed into each other.

    Slow-motion collisions of tectonic plates under the ocean drag about three times more water down into the deep Earth than previously estimated, according to a first-of-its-kind seismic study that spans the Mariana Trench, a crescent-shaped trench in the Western Pacific that measures 1,500 miles long and is the deepest ocean trench in the world. This is recovery of seismographs on uninhabited islands in the Commonwealth of the...

    A planetary nebula is the corpse that remains when a star dies. When planetary nebulae were observed for the first time with a telescope, they presented a roughly circular shape, resembling that of the gas giant planets. Hence their name, which remains in use even though they are very different from planets. The study shows unexpected complexity in the distribution of gas and dust in one of the brightest planetary nebulae in the sky...

    Using the infrared satellite AKARI, a Japanese research team has detected the existence of water in the form of hydrated minerals in a number of asteroids for the first time. This discovery will contribute to our understanding of the distribution of water in our solar system, the evolution of asteroids, and the origin of water on Earth. By using a space-borne telescope, the team was able to successfully detect the presence of water...

    A relic cloud of gas, orphaned after the Big Bang, has been discovered in the distant universe by astronomers using the world's most powerful optical telescope, the W. M. Keck Observatory on Maunakea, Hawaii. Within the gas in the (blue) filaments connecting the (orange) galaxies lurk rare pockets of pristine gas -- vestiges of the Big Bang that have somehow been orphaned from the explosive, polluting deaths of stars, seen here as...

    Warming temperatures in cold places are causing plants to flower earlier, according to a new study. Shorter flowering seasons can disrupt the food chain and how plants and pollinators in tundras interact with each other, said Florida International University biologist Steven Oberbauer, who co-authored the study.

    More than two-thirds of Canada's biodiversity is made up of species that occur within the country's borders only at the very northern edge of their range. Biologists have long debated how much effort should be dedicated to conserving these "edge populations." One argument in their favour is that they may be especially well suited to lead northward range shifts for their species as the climate warms. Artificial warming enables yellow...
