How hummingbirds regained a sweet tooth

Hummingbirds detect sugars using a transformed taste receptor -- one that detects the savory umami taste in all other vertebrates, new research reports. This modification helped hummingbirds to sense nectar, a change that allowed them to exploit a distinct environmental niche compared to other birds.

The sceans that slowed 21st century global warming

Why did the rapid global warming that characterized the latter part of the 20th century slow down over the last 15 years or so? Many different theories have been proposed, but a new study suggests that a massive movement of heat from shallow surface waters to deep regions of the Atlantic and Southern Oceans -- but not the Pacific Ocean, as many researchers had predicted -- might be responsible.

For polio, two vaccines are better than one

Using both polio vaccines could help speed the global eradication of polio, a new study reports. The study, done in Indian children already given the live polio vaccine, shows that a single dose of the inactivated vaccine boosts immunity more effectively than an additional live vaccine dose.

How did fossil pig forage?

The living wild boar uses its strong snout rooting on the ground to search for food. A recent research, based on the reconstruction of the facial and occipital muscles, cranio-mandibular joint, and the dental morphology, found that one genus of fossil pig, Chleuastochoerus, showed a similar foraging behavior. This study has been published on SCIENCE CHINA Earth Sciences(In Chinese), 2014, No.6.

Findings suggest over-reliance on pulse oximetry for determining whether children with respiratory infection should be hospitalized

Among infants presenting to a pediatric emergency department with mild to moderate bronchiolitis, those with an artificially elevated oxygen saturation reading were less likely to be hospitalized or receive hospital care for more than 6 hours than those with unaltered readings, suggesting that these readings should not be the only factor in the decision to admit or discharge, according to a study in the August 20 issue of JAMA.
