    Scans reveal secrets of medieval 'Harry Potter' book and medical texts at Penn
    The slim volume bound in animal skin represented the best the field of medicine had to offer 500 years ago: a compilation of remedies made from such ingredients as rabbit bones, ox tongue, and chicory. Yet at some point before the manuscript reached its current resting place, a library shelf at the University of Pennsylvania, an unknown liquid was spilled on its carefully lettered pages.

“The research is important not only for a better understanding of the role each species of fly plays in the ecosystem at large, but for getting a larger picture of biodiversity and extinction rates.” http://bit.ly/2Ge9OiZ

    'Astounding' survey of fly species suggests we might be underestimating global biodiversity | CBC News
    A University of Calgary entomologist recently participated in a landmark study that revealed just how much we don't know about the number and variety of species that inhabit our planet. John Swann was one of 59 biologists who spent one year collecting flies from a four-hectare patch of cloud forest in Costa Rica.

“The species hails from a time in the Cretaceous period, between 100 and 66 million years ago, when birds were in the process of losing many of the traits inherited from their dinosaur forebears and evolving into the winged, feathered creatures we know today.” http://bit.ly/2GdjSbS

    Dinosaur-Era Bird Found With Shockingly Intact Skull
    A delicate but remarkably well-preserved fossil skull is providing new clues to how birds evolved from their dinosaur ancestors. The first known fossil of the ancient bird Ichthyornis was unearthed in 1870 in Kansas, under the direction of legendary fossil-hunter Othniel Charles Marsh.
