Research Spotlight: Professor honored for advancements in artificial intelligence

Power of thumb-sized chameleons The smaller the chameleon, the more powerful its tongue, wrote Christopher Anderson, postdoctoral research associate in ecology and evolutionary biology, in the journal Scientific Reports, according to a University press release. While all chameleon species have impressively powerful tongues, smaller chameleons launch theirs to catch insects faster and farther relative to their body sizes. Anderson reported that the power and acceleration chameleons produce for each kilogram of muscle mass is the second greatest among all vertebrates, second only to salamanders. Anderson explained in his report that because smaller animals need to consume more energy for survival, they have evolved over time to be better than larger animals at catching food.
