(Phys.org)—Can an abundance of sea otters help reverse a principal cause of global warming?
A team of researchers based at Newcastle University are working to create a Kimberley wildlife sperm bank.
For social animals such as schooling fish, the loss of their numbers to human activity could eventually threaten entire populations, according to a finding that such animals rely heavily on grouping to effectively navigate ...
Genetic diversity among translocated populations of golden bandicoots (Isoodon auratus) in the north-west has been assessed by WA researchers to determine their ongoing viability.
(Phys.org)—Social networks can be used to describe the sexual interactions in animal populations and reveal which individuals are directly competing in the 'mating game', according to new Oxford University research.
In contrast to climate change, there is no coordinated global system in place for measuring and reporting on biodiversity change or loss. An international team of biologists is now addressing this gap.
Scientists have used genetic testing on animals that died of natural causes for the first time, potentially boosting efforts to save endangered species.
Scientists are reporting development of chemical modules that can reproduce, on an "unprecedented" molecular level, changes and interactions that occur in natural populations of plants and animals, including those of hunting ...
(Phys.org)—Indiana University researchers have found evidence that a species of songbird that recently colonized an urban environment exhibits less stress and bolder behavior as compared to counterparts living in the forest. ...
(Phys.org)—Tropical montane cloud forest trees use more than their roots to take up water. They also drink water from clouds directly through their leaves, University of California, Berkeley, scientists have discovered.
