comment Long term liquid food diet by blending/grinding all quality foods one would normaly eat, not any weight loss or prepared drinks
This New Yorker piece on "Soylent" is not peer-reviewed research, but goes into a lot of good, well written detail on the topic, including quotes from nutrition scientists, and anecdotes from users. It might make a good starting point. +1 for a good exploration of the cultural, as well as nutritional issues. newyorker.com/magazine/2014/05/12/…

comment What is the formal terminology for two species that are “close” to each other in a phylogenetic tree?
Good point 5heikki. It's one of those terms like 'endemic' that is pretty meaningless without context.

This is an interesting point, but note that I'm specifically interested in how small animals make loud sounds, not why.
