A team led by Oxford University scientists examined fossils of the earliest birds from the Cretaceous Period, 145-66 million years ago, when early birds, such as Confuciusornis, Eoenantiornis, and Hongshanornis, lived alongside their dinosaur kin. At this point birds had already evolved...

Flower-flies (also known as hover-flies) are a family of flies (Diptera), with the scientific name of "Syrphidae". As their names suggests, they are most often seen around flowers. The adults feed mainly on nectar and pollen, while the larvae (maggots) eat a wide range of foods. In certain species, the larvae are saprophytes, eating decaying plant and animal matter in the soil or in ponds and streams. In others, the larvae are insectivores and prey on aphids, thrips, and other...

The Japanese Beetle (Popillia japonica) is a beetle about 0.6 inches (1.5 cm) long and 0.4 inches (1 cm) wide (smaller in Canada), with shiny copper-colored elytra and a shiny green top of the thorax and head. Although it is not very destructive in Japan, where it is controlled by natural enemies, in America it is a serious pest to rose bushes and other plants. It is a weak flyer and drops several centimeters when it hits a wall. Japanese Beetle traps therefore consist of a pair of crossed...
