8123Most southerly marmosetblack-tailed marmoset Mico melanurusParaguay04 October 2015The most southerly marmoset is the black-tailed marmoset Mico melanurus. Whereas all other marmosets are confined to the Amazon rainforest, the distribution range of this particular species extends southwards from the south-central Amazon in Brazil through the Pantanal and eastern Bolivia to the Chaco in northern Paraguay. The Pantanal is a region encompassing the world's largest wetland area.This species was originally an inhabitant of rainforests like other marmosets, but the proliferation of plantations has encouraged it to extend its range beyond its traditional location. The Chaco in particular, a hot and semi-arid region of the Rio de la Plata basin, is a very different environment from humid tropical rainforests, but this species has clearly adapted well because it is common and deemed to be of Least Concern by the IUCN.

8127Thermometer - smallestGreen Fluorescent Proteins24 Angstroms firstCanada, Hamilton09 August 2007On 9 August 2007, researchers from McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada, published a paper that demonstrated the world's smallest thermometer. Made from Green Fluorescent Protein, the substance that allows jellyfish to glow, the protein emitted "flashes" of light in direct relationship to its temperature. The flashing of the protein happens very quickly and is caused by light being absorbed and emitted by the protein molecules. The protein itself is only around ~42 Å long and ~24 Å in diameter, and comprises 238 amino acids in a cylindrical arrangement. Applications in micro-surgical monitoring and non-invasive sensors for health monitoring are an obvious offshoot of this incredible technology. These proteins have been used to genetically bond to skin of mice and fish. They are demonstrated to be biologically safe in thermometer applications by experiments to show they can be attached safely to animal DNA.
