Bees Adjust to Seasons with Nutrients in Flowers and ‘Dirty Water’

Tufts University

Researchers discovered that honey bees alter their diet by the season. A spike in calcium consumption in the fall, and high intake of potassium, help prepare the bees for colder months when they likely need those minerals to generate warmth. Limitations in nutrient availability can have implications for the health of both managed and wild colonies.

Novel Water-Absorbing Gel Invented by NUS Researchers Harnesses Air Moisture for Practical Applications

National University of Singapore

A team of researchers from the National University of Singapore has invented a novel gel-like material that not only effectively dehumidifies ambient air to improve thermal comfort, but it also harnesses the moisture in the air for a wide range of practical applications, such as functioning as a sun or privacy screen, conductive ink and even a battery. These interesting properties are inherent in the material after water absorption, without a need for external power.
