African elephants can detect water from natural and artificial sources via olfactory cues.
TLDR
The findings indicate that elephants can locate water olfactorily at small spatial scales, but the extent to which they, and other mammals, can detect water over larger scales remains unclear. Expand
Flash desorption of low-volatility compounds deposited on the heated solid substrate (90°C) by dripping liquid methanol.
TLDR
It was suggested that surface-active compounds desorbed at the peripheral front region of the spreading liquid meethanol accompanied by rapid evaporation of methanol. Expand
Rain-induced bioecological resuspension of radiocaesium in a polluted forest in Japan
TLDR
The present findings indicate that radiocaesium could be used as a tracer in such research fields as forest ecology, meteorology, climatology, public health and agriculture, in which fungal spores have significance. Expand
The nesting preference of an invasive ant is associated with the cues produced by actinobacteria in soil
TLDR
A soil-dwelling ant may choose nest sites presenting relatively low pathogen risk by detecting the odors produced by bacteria with anti-fungal properties, suggesting their presence may reduce the risk of fungal infection. Expand
Noise as an informational cue for decision-making: the sound of rain delays bat emergence
TLDR
It is concluded that bats can use background noise, here the acoustic component of rainfall, as a reliable informational cue to make informed decisions, in this case about whether to initiate foraging trips or remain in the shelter of their roosts. Expand

TLDR
It is possible that as cerebral capacity increased throughout human evolution, this facilitated a preferable system of wetness perception via multisensory integration and rendered hygroreceptors obsolete. Expand
