Publisher's Summary

Harnessing the weirdness of the quantum world is difficult - fragile quantum properties quickly degrade under typical conditions. But such fragility could help migrating birds find their way. Some scientists think birds navigate with quantum-mechanical compasses, and the new study suggests quantum fragility would enhance birds’ sense of direction.

"Quantum Fragility May Help Guide Birds" is from the July 23, 2016 issue of Science News.
