Scientists involved more than 100 individuals in a bouldering (rock climbing) intervention in Germany, where some hospitals have begun to use climbing as a therapeutic treatment. The team found the social, mental and physical endurance of bouldering could be successful psychotherapy for treating depression in adults.

A new technique for rapidly sorting HIV viruses has now been created, which could lead to more rapid development of a vaccine for HIV, say experts. The technique will enable scientists to identify specific features in the proteins on the virus’s surface that are recognized by the immune system and elicit a response similar to that seen in elite controllers – patients that are able to survive without antiviral treatment.

Major gains in global biodiversity can be achieved if an additional 5 percent of land is set aside to protect key species, say experts. Scientists report such an effort could triple the protected range of those species and safeguard their functional diversity. The findings underscore the need to look beyond species numbers when developing conservation strategies, the researchers said.

Scientists using a high-resolution global climate model and historical observations of species distributions on the Northeast US Shelf have found that commercially important species will continue to shift their distribution as ocean waters warm two to three times faster than the global average through the end of this century. Projected increases in surface to bottom waters of 6.6 to 9 degrees F (3.7 to 5.0 degrees C) from current conditions are expected.

An international group of researchers from UK, France, Hungary and Sweden has provided new insights into the origins of the Archaea, the group of simple cellular organisms that are the ancestors of all complex life. The Archaea are one of the primary domains of cellular life, and are possibly the most ancient form of life: [...]
