This worms lifestyle is the stuff of science fiction

first_img By Elizabeth PennisiJan. 6, 2019 , 10:30 AM Click to view the privacy policy. Required fields are indicated by an asterisk (*) TAMPA, FLORIDA—Half the size of a cigarette and squirmy, the black aquatic worm Lumbriculus variegatus isn’t much to look at. But these denizens of sulfur caves and flooded areas like company and often many thousands come together as “blobs” with behavior not unlike the 1958 movie by the same name. Tangled up in squishy masses that can be the size of a basketball or bigger, the worms are transformed into a pulsating ball versatile enough to squeeze through tubes, hold together and bounce off surfaces, or spread out or shrink depending on the conditions.  The odd behavior helps these animals weather extreme conditions, researchers reported here today at the annual meeting of the Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology.  The worms breathe through their skin and need to stay wet. A single worm lives less than an hour in air at room temperature and humidity. But a blob of 20 survives more than 5 hours, and the survival time goes up as the number of worms increases, the researchers discovered. The outer ones may dry out, but inner ones stay moist. The worms glom together to minimize the exposed surface area that loses moisture, and thus really big blobs can even withstand being dried with a hairdryer, the researchers note.

A 50,000-worm blob placed in a container with a gradient of temperature will migrate toward the preferred temperature, acting as a solid mass. But in other situations, it “liquifies” and flows—through tubes, for example, they discovered.Based on their growing understanding of these blobs, the scientists are building robots that may eventually exhibit similar collective behavior and may one day solve complex problems or perform intricate building or searching tasks.center_img This worm’s lifestyle is the stuff of science fiction Country * Afghanistan Aland Islands Albania Algeria Andorra Angola Anguilla Antarctica Antigua and Barbuda Argentina Armenia Aruba Australia Austria Azerbaijan Bahamas Bahrain Bangladesh Barbados Belarus Belgium Belize Benin Bermuda Bhutan Bolivia, Plurinational State of Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba Bosnia and Herzegovina Botswana Bouvet Island Brazil British Indian Ocean Territory Brunei Darussalam Bulgaria Burkina Faso Burundi Cambodia Cameroon Canada Cape Verde Cayman Islands Central African Republic Chad Chile China Christmas Island Cocos (Keeling) Islands Colombia Comoros Congo Congo, the Democratic Republic of the Cook Islands Costa Rica Cote d’Ivoire Croatia Cuba Curaçao Cyprus Czech Republic Denmark Djibouti Dominica Dominican Republic Ecuador Egypt El Salvador Equatorial Guinea Eritrea Estonia Ethiopia Falkland Islands (Malvinas) Faroe Islands Fiji Finland France French Guiana French Polynesia French Southern Territories Gabon Gambia Georgia Germany Ghana Gibraltar Greece Greenland Grenada Guadeloupe Guatemala Guernsey Guinea Guinea-Bissau Guyana Haiti Heard Island and McDonald Islands Holy See (Vatican City State) Honduras Hungary Iceland India Indonesia Iran, Islamic Republic of Iraq Ireland Isle of Man Israel Italy Jamaica Japan Jersey Jordan Kazakhstan Kenya Kiribati Korea, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Republic of Kuwait Kyrgyzstan Lao People’s Democratic Republic Latvia Lebanon Lesotho Liberia Libyan Arab Jamahiriya Liechtenstein Lithuania Luxembourg Macao Macedonia, the former Yugoslav Republic of Madagascar Malawi Malaysia Maldives Mali Malta Martinique Mauritania Mauritius Mayotte Mexico Moldova, Republic of Monaco Mongolia Montenegro Montserrat Morocco Mozambique Myanmar Namibia Nauru Nepal Netherlands New Caledonia New Zealand Nicaragua Niger Nigeria Niue Norfolk Island Norway Oman Pakistan Palestine Panama Papua New Guinea Paraguay Peru Philippines Pitcairn Poland Portugal Qatar Reunion Romania Russian Federation Rwanda Saint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha Saint Kitts and Nevis Saint Lucia Saint Martin (French part) Saint Pierre and Miquelon Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Samoa San Marino Sao Tome and Principe Saudi Arabia Senegal Serbia Seychelles Sierra Leone Singapore Sint Maarten (Dutch part) Slovakia Slovenia Solomon Islands Somalia South Africa South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands South Sudan Spain Sri Lanka Sudan Suriname Svalbard and Jan Mayen Swaziland Sweden Switzerland Syrian Arab Republic Taiwan Tajikistan Tanzania, United Republic of Thailand Timor-Leste Togo Tokelau Tonga Trinidad and Tobago Tunisia Turkey Turkmenistan Turks and Caicos Islands Tuvalu Uganda Ukraine United Arab Emirates United Kingdom United States Uruguay Uzbekistan Vanuatu Venezuela, Bolivarian Republic of Vietnam Virgin Islands, British Wallis and Futuna Western Sahara Yemen Zambia Zimbabwe Emaillast_img read more
