Butterflies show how patterns evolve on the wing

Posted on Monday 7 July 2014

A handful of highly specific genetic "switches" can control a kaleidoscopic diversity of colours and wing patterns in butterflies, scientists will demonstrate at this year's Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition.

Bird invaders 'moving in' to UK's nature reserves

Posted on Wednesday 14 May 2014

A new study by scientists at the University of York and the RSPB Centre for Conservation Science has demonstrated that nature reserves and other areas specially protected for wildlife, as well as being vital for native species, are very important for helping European birds to expand their ranges into Britain naturally. The catch is that protected areas are also at increasing risk of invasion by species that have been introduced from further afield.
