Meredith Staub presents her findings about CH5+, a particularly energetic molecule that is a key link in the chain that creates many common chemicals. She presents a method for computer simulation of CH5+ which will hopefully present clearer picture of the elusive molecule, so that it will be easier to identify.
Shannon Kachel discusses the unanticipated effects of competition between two sets of predators in Central Asia. Threatened snow leopards and wolves compete fiercely with each other for the same few, scarce prey animals. And surprisingly, this dynamic results in a win-win for both species. This more nuanced understanding interaction in these ecosystems could impact conservation policy and help protect endangered species.
