Over the past 50 years, the water in lakes and watercourses has turned increasingly brown. The so-called browning has a negative impact on both drinking water production and ecosystems. If nothing is done, the water is likely to turn even browner — however, Swedish scientists provide hope.
Predators are not only a deadly threat to many animals, they also affect potential prey negatively simply by being nearby. Researchers at Lund University in Sweden have studied what happens to the prey’s immune system when they are forced to expend a large amount of their energy on avoiding being eaten.
With the increasing threat of antibiotic resistance, there is a growing need for new treatment strategies against life threatening bacterial infections. Researchers at Lund University in Sweden and the University of Copenhagen may have identified such an alternative treatment for bacterial meningitis, a serious infection that can lead to sepsis.
Scientists of Lund University, Sweden, led the international collaboration that resulted in the most comprehensive and in-depth examination of a soft-tissue fossil ever undertaken. Among other things, the study reveals that the soft parts have fossilised so quickly that both the original cells and their internal contents are preserved.
For the first time, researchers have measured what is known as the ground effect of flying animals. It turns out they save a lot more energy by flying close to the ground than previously believed. The study from Lund University in Sweden supports one of the theories on how birds began to fly.
Nürnberg (as) - Mit Ethercat-Antrieben ist der erste Java-gesteuerte Industrieroboter ausgestattet. Die Steuerung ist eine von Sun Microsystems unterstützte Entwicklung von Dr. Klas Nilsson und seinem Team an der Universität von Lund. Der Roboter ABB FlexPicker kann von einem Standard-PC gesteuert werden. Der gesamte Ethercat-Master wurde in Standard Real-Time Java implementiert.
