Primate brain evolution Featured 24 Jan 2005 Print

Primate brain evolution

Primate brain evolution. Conceptual computer artwork of a brain (centre) with a monkey head (left) and a human head (right), representing the evolution of primate brains. Monkeys and humans are both primates, mammals that have good eyesight and flexible hands and feet. Both descend from a common ancestor, but have evolved differently. Their brains are similar, but humans have complex language and reasoning abilities. They also have highly developed technology, populate most of the land areas of the globe, are exploring surrounding space, and have scientific theories to explain the world around them. Monkeys live in jungles where they hunt and forage for food

Sperm whale and giant squid

Sperm whale and giant squid. Computer artwork of a sperm whale (Physeter catodon, or macrocephalus, left) hunting a giant squid (Architeuthis sp., at right). Sperm whales can reach 18 metres in length and giant squid can be up to 10 metres long. Sperm whales are toothed whales (teeth seen in lower jaw), though the teeth are thought to be used in aggression between males, rather than eating. Sperm whales dive deep (over 1000 metres) to hunt their main prey, giant squid. The squid can defend itself with suckers and sharp beak, and scars are found on whales from these defences. However, the giant squid is rarely seen, most often found in a sperm whale's intestines or washed up on a beach

Electrical batteries Featured 24 Jan 2005 Print

Electrical batteries

Electrical batteries. Collection of electrical batteries. Batteries are chemical systems designed to store and slowly release electrical energy. The batteries seen here are mostly dry, though the car battery (large one at the back) is an example of a wet battery (one that uses liquid chemicals). Some batteries can be recharged (one at lower right) by using electricity to restore the chemical balance. Batteries use a wide variety of chemicals, ranging from nickel, cadmium and zinc to lithium, lead and acids. They can also vary widely in size, down to the small batteries that are used in watches and other small electrical devices (bottom centre)
