Lab-made mini-lungs mimic real COVID infections

A new lab-grown living lung model mimics the tiny air sacs of the lungs where coronavirus infection and serious lung damage take place. The advance allows researchers to watch the battle between the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus and lung cells at the finest molecular scale. The virus damages the delicate, balloon-like air sacs, known as alveoli, leading…

Light pollution may skew mule deer and cougar dynamic

Exposure to light pollution may alter predator-prey dynamics between mule deer and cougars across the intermountain West, a region where night skyglow is an increasing environmental disturbance, researchers report. The study is the first to assess the effects of light pollution on predator-prey interactions at a regional scale. It combines satellite-derived estimates of artificial night…
