Leopards cannot change their spots, but butterflies can (The Times UK)

Biologists have long known that the wing spots of the Bycyclus anayana, to give it its scientific name, change size depending on what season in which the butterfly is born. But they have not known why. Now a team of scientists from Oregon State University believe they have the answer. (see also Entomology Today)

Beer innovators (All About Beer Magazine)

Shellhammer is a professor of fermentation sciences at Oregon State University, where he has been doing groundbreaking research on hops for over a decade. The hop plant Humulus lupulus goes way back in Corvallis; not only are hops grown nearby, but also the USDA’s famous breeding program produced early American classics like Cascade and Willamette. For decades, brewers and hop growers have trekked to OSU to learn more about the spice of beer, and lately Shellhammer has been happy to guide them into the future.

Barbara Drake goes back to the Yamhill County land in ‘Morning Light:’ Book review (Oregonian)

In 1987 Barbara Drake moved onto a small acreage in the Yamhill Valley and has lived in the country since. Her new collection, “Morning Light: Wildflowers, Night Skies, and Other Ordinary Joys of Oregon Country Life,” (Oregon State University Press) follows her 1998 book, “Peace at Heart: An Oregon Country Life,” in recounting the stories and lessons that have come of those years. Never a dull moment, Drake braves coyotes, poison oak, falling trees, water shortage, and careless neighbors who nearly shoot her husband — among other things.

OSU wrestling opens at home, with chance to claim 1,000th dual-meet win (Oregonian)

Everyone surrounding the Oregon State wrestling team is feeling a little chippy heading into the 2014-15 season.

WhaleFest explores gizmos, gadgets of cetacean science (Juneau Empire)

Her talk didn’t have to do with zombie sea lions. Instead, working with Oregon State University researcher Markus Horning, she uses a gadget that looks like a very large pill. It’s surgically inserted in — and free floats in — sea lions’ abdomens. It monitors and keeps a record of their vital signs, but it doesn’t send a signal to researchers until the animal is dead, as indicated by the sudden presence of light or a drop in temperature.
