Branched polymers of glucose are universally used for energy storage in cells, taking the form of glycogen in animals, fungi, Bacteria, and Archaea, and of amylopectin in plants. Some enzymes involved in glycogen and amylopectin metabolism are similarly conserved in all forms of life, but some, interestingly, are not. In this paper we focus on the phylogeny of glycogen branching and debranching enzymes, respectively involved in introducing and re...

Tree Trunk Spider !!

I believe there is always opportunities for a photographer to capture ;) While rain has washed all plans for shooting winged beauties of Dandeli, I spent good number of hours sharpening my skills on Macro Photography. While this spider seems to be stuck on Tree mostly,  prefer not to come on the ground. I manged to get her and this moment is when she just stood up and started climbing up on the Tree on with the help of web !!
Looking forward for your and suggestion to improve :)

The tree trunk spiders are members of the tropical and semi-tropical Family Hersiliidae. There are about 150 species in this family. These spiders have two very prominent spinnerets that are almost as long as their abdomen. So they are also sometimes known as "two-tailed spiders." They range in size from about 10 mm (0.4 inch) to 18 mm (0.7 inch) long. Being very well camouflaged for life on the varicolored trunks of trees, they have an interesting way of capturing prey. Rather than making a web that captures prey directly, they lay a light coating of threads over an area of tree bark and wait hidden in plain sight for an insect to stray onto that patch. Once that occurs, they direct their spinnerets toward their prey and circle it; all the while casting silk on it. When the hapless insect has been thoroughly immobilized, they can bite it through its new shroud.

A new species in the group is the smallest yet, with adults smaller than a newborn kitten.

Evolution, a progression of scientific thought

A really amazing infographic about the conceptual progression of ideas on evolution through time. Really worth spending time following the different threads.

Thanks to +Tania Jenkins,+Miriam Quick and +Stefanie Posavec for the poster and to +José Cerca for pointing me to it! Poster funded by a grant from the European Society for Evolutionary Biology www.eseb.org
