  Heat treatment eases severe asthma: study
An experimental asthma treatment that uses heat to reduce airway constriction provided some relief from severe asthma, say US researchers.
  Genetic signature for Darwinian evolution
Scientists are detecting the signature of Darwinian selection etched in the DNA of cane toads and their cousins.
  Ancient primate is evolutionary 'aunt'
Scientists have unveiled the well preserved fossilised remains of an ancient primate found in Germany that may have been a close relative of monkeys, apes and humans.
  No quick fix for River Murray acid problem
An emergency plan to prevent an acid sulphate soil disaster on Australia's River Murray is a sharp reminder tough action is needed to save the iconic system, say experts.
  Early earth cool enough for life: study
Life on earth may have sparked into existence as early as 4.4 billion years ago, hundreds of millions of years sooner than previously thought possible, according to a US study.
  Ant antennae carry internal GPS
Minuscule magnets found in ant antennae could help to explain why these insects seem to always know where they are going, according to researchers.
  Hard times make birds better singers
A hostile environment and inconsistent weather may explain why some birds become better singers than others, according to a new study.
  Early human ate young Neanderthal: study
Sometime between 28,000 and 30,000 years ago, an anatomically modern human in what is now France may have eaten a Neanderthal child, according to a new study.
  Blood flow affects clot formation
Australian researchers have found the mechanism that stops some stroke and heart attack patients responding to blood thinning treatments such as aspirin.
  Overfishing began 1000 years ago: study
Europeans started over-exploiting freshwater fish at least 1000 years ago, according to historical studies that could help manage depleted modern fish stocks worldwide.
  Cocker spaniel world's meanest dog
A floppy-eared, innocent-looking breed may be one of the world's most aggressive dogs, according to a new study.
