Researchers are closer to understanding patterns of family relatedness and genetic diversity in bumblebees. The findings could help farmers, land managers and policy makers develop more effective conservation schemes for ...
Scientists have confirmed the function of a gene that controls the awakening of trees from winter dormancy, a critical factor in their ability to adjust to environmental changes associated with climate change.
IFCE and INRA announced that, for the first time ever in Europe, four foals were successfully born as the result of the transfer of genotyped and cryopreserved embryos. The goal of this work is to better understand embryonic ...
The first genotyping of grey squirrels sampled from Italy and the UK shows a direct link between their genetic diversity and their ability to invade new environments.

(Phys.org) —For more than a hundred years, piles of whale bones have littered the beaches of South Georgia Island in the South Atlantic Ocean – remnants of a vast and deadly whaling industry in the early 20th century ...
(Phys.org) —New research by Stanford scholars shows that increasing genetic diversity among the 3,000 or so tigers left on the planet is the key to their survival as a species.
The Miccosukee gooseberry is on the verge of extinction, but geneticist Eric J. B. von Wettberg believes genetic variation is the key to its survival.
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.
A team of researchers based at Newcastle University are working to create a Kimberley wildlife sperm bank.
