Shoppers spend over £10 billion on bananas annually and now this demand is being linked to the contamination of Central America’s crocodilians. New research, published in Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry, analyses blood samples from spectacled caiman in Costa Rica and finds that intensive pesticide use in plantations leads to contaminated species in protected conservation areas.

STEM CELLS describes a new regimen for quashing the immunologic barrier, a short-course treatment with two costimlation-adhesion blockade agents, allowing engraftment of transplanted differentiated stem cells and their prolonged survival in tissue.
Exploitation of marine fisheries often begins decades or even centuries before regular monitoring of fish stocks is undertaken, making it difficult to accurately assess the current health of fish populations in the context of their past abundance. In an article appearing in Significance, the magazine of the Royal Statistical Society and the American Statistical Association, Dr. Ruth H. Thurstan uses historical information to uncover a picture of the UK’s coastal environments prior to the intensification of fishing.

Even today, the lives of humans and animals are claimed by plague. A new antibody-based detection method can be used to reliably and sensitively identify plague in patient serum and other biological samples. The antibody specifically recognizes a particular carbohydrate structure found on the cell surfaces of the bacterium that causes plague, as reported by German researchers in the journal Angewandte Chemie.
