🌳Après les balades dans la nature, en randonnée ou en plongée, posons nous et prenons le temps pour d'un thread d'observation la #nature pour voir si la copier n'est pas mieux que de s'encombrer de calculs parfois complexes et sans certitude de résultat
#biomimétisme #conception
⚠️Encore une fois, pas de généralisation à "la nature, c'est mieux", tout au plus, comme tout bon concepteur, inspirons-nous de tout ce qui existe, quelque soit la personne, la société, la nation ou le processus naturel l'ayant engendré.
🚶‍♂️Dans notre balade mentale (excellente chaîne #YouTube par ailleurs), plein de termes s'entrechoquent ...

#ChristmasIsland #reptiles are another great ARWH case study this #ScienceWeek. Lister's #gecko and the blue-tailed #skink only exist in captivity (only ~1000 of each!) after environmental pressures sent them #ExtinctInTheWild. #WildlifeHealth Image
When astute rangers at breeding facilities on #ChristmasIsland noticed some of the #lizards were dying, the species was left literally on the brink of #extinction. #WildlifeHealth
Working with @Parks_Australia, Jess Agius, @Sydney_Uni and others, the team were able to identify a novel bacteria, Enterococcus lacertideformus, and show the widespread infection of multiple reptile species on the island. #WildlifeHealth sydney.edu.au/news-opinion/n…

#gecko & #anole #lizard tweeps, reading lit on life history & have a Q:

Is invariant clutch size in each of these groups a consequence/phylogenetic constraint of descent from a narrow bodied/arboreal ancestor?

🦎 🥚
OR has invariant clutch size evolved multiple times as arboreal habitats have been invaded? (i'm thinking this one)
So I guess this is a question of which came first? Few eggs 🥚🥚 or the tree 🌳🌳

...yes...the humor is getting worse while #WFH
