A network of science: 150 years of Nature papers

A network of science: 150 years of Nature papers

By Micah Moen 68 Comments January 16, 2020

This is Nature’s publication record. 150 years of interconnected research represented by the majority of Nature’s papers. A snapshot of the ever growing web of collaboration and discovery that is science. Each dot is a paper. The colour represents the field – yellow for Earth and space science, green for physics, and so on. Two […]

Socio-ecological Transformation Processes – Professor Perdita Pohle

Socio-ecological Transformation Processes – Professor Perdita Pohle

By Micah Moen 0 Comment January 15, 2020

One topic our research is about is socio-ecological transformation processes and the acceptance of the local population of these socio-ecological transformation processes in adaptation to climate change. For example, in the landscape, if we increase mais production for biogas, then there is a competition among land use between mais production and food production.

Natural selection in a hurricane: The lizards that won’t let go

By Micah Moen 98 Comments January 14, 2020

These lizards are leaping for science. Well, not so much leaping, as falling. But their tumbles are helping scientists answer a question. Could hurricanes drive natural selection? Hurricanes are destructive – perhaps too destructive to influence evolution, with species survival being more random than influenced by specific traits. And while some scientists suspect that hurricanes […]

Twins: A window into human nature | Nancy Segal | TEDxManhattanBeach

Translator: Sigal Tifferet Reviewer: Cristina Bufi-Pöcksteiner Let’s talk about twins. Twins turn heads wherever they go. Seeing two identical infants, children or adults is irresistible, causing us to peer into baby carriages, stare into playgrounds, and even ask rather personal questions, such as, “Who is older?”, “Who is smarter?”, and, “Who decides what both of […]

Princeton Innovation: AI-based motion capture for animals

By Micah Moen 0 Comment January 10, 2020

[MUSIC] JOSHUA SHAEVITZ: We are doing experiments in Kenya and some other places trying to ask what animals are doing in their natural settings and how this might be changing over time potentially due to human activity. And in order to interpret what they do, we decided very quickly that we need to understand where […]
