(University of Exeter) The evolution of Earth's first animals more than 500 million years ago caused global warming, new research shows.
(University of Georgia) Every year, billions of animals migrate across the globe, carrying parasites with them and encountering parasites through their travels. Now, a team of researchers at the University of Georgia's Odum School of Ecology discovered that animals known to migrate long distances are infected by a greater number of parasite species than animals that do not migrate.
(Duke University) Researchers have discovered that, over the long-run, the race will indeed go to the slower, steadier animal. An analysis of the reported speeds of animals based on land, air and water shows that some of the world's fastest animals are actually some of the slowest when their movements are averaged throughout their lifetimes, giving credence to Aesop's fable 'The Tortoise and the ...
Airlines are not the only organizations grappling with the complexities surrounding emotional support animals. Colleges and courts are also questioning the need for these animals and the effects they may have on students and juries, respectively, according to new research.
NewsTransgenic models are vital to research but generating them takes work—and a considerable number of animals. However, scientists are devising ways to both refine and reduce the use of genetically-altered animals.
TUESDAY, July 17, 2018 -- Children who abuse animals may have been abused themselves, a new study suggests. Kids aged 10 and up who intentionally hurt animals are two to three times more likely to have been abused than kids who treat animals with...
The most widely accepted use of genetically engineered (GE) animals involves mosquitoes to prevent the spread of vector-borne diseases, according to the survey conducted by Pew Research Center. The survey was conducted on April 23-May 6, 2018 among 2,537 U.S. adults to understand the public perception of GE animals. The results showed that 70% of t...
A household scene as viewed by various pets and pests. Human eyesight is roughly seven times sharper than a cat, 40 to 60 times sharper than a rat or a goldfish, and hundreds of times sharper than a fly or a mosquito. (Image courtesy of Eleanor Caves) Animals have us beat in basically every test of sensory perception. Bats bounce ultrasonic waves to locate prey, and bears can smell a carcass from...
The discovery of the world's first known manta ray nursery will offer a glimpse into the animals' juvenile stage.
(NYU Langone Health / NYU School of Medicine) Most animals have a keen sense of smell, which assists them in everyday tasks. Now, a new study led by researchers at NYU School of Medicine sheds light on exactly how animals follow smells.
(Wiley) Scientists have thought that the main determinant of maximal longevity in warm-blooded animals -- which varies from as little as 2 to as many as 211 years -- is a species' metabolic rate, which is inversely related to body size. It follows that at 2 years of life, small animals with high metabolic rates are already old, but large animals with low metabolic rates are still young.
Following the ultimate goal of the Paris Agreement would benefit plants and animals around the world, according to a new study.
(University of Exeter) Plants use many of the same methods as animals to camouflage themselves, a new study shows.
Researchers have reported the first evidence that non-human animals can mentally replay past events from memory. The discovery could help improve the development of drugs to treat Alzheimer's disease by providing a way to study memory in animals that more closely addresses how memory works in people.
(University of Edinburgh) Animals that are inbred make mistakes in response to changes in their surroundings, at a cost to themselves and their young.
Currently, the FDA generally treats genetically engineered animals as “new animal drugs.”
As our climate changes, the availability of water is also changing, leaving animals with limited or unreliable supplies of this critical resource
(Vanderbilt University) New Vanderbilt research finds how long humans and other warm-blooded animals live -- and when they reach sexual maturity -- may have more to do with their brain than their body. More specifically, it is not animals with larger bodies or slower metabolic rates that live longer; it is animals with more neurons in the cerebral cortex, whatever the size of the body.
SOURCE: Republic Services DESCRIPTION:Most people know Republic Services for the big blue trucks that collect trash throughout their neighborhood. But we don’t just deliver garbage to the local landfill, we also work to keep some things out – such as perfectly edible food. Supermarkets and restaurants often are left with food that’s beyond the “sell by” date but is still safe for consump...
Scientists at the University of Leeds may have found a new way to reduce the number of animals used in research while also gaining improved insight into treating cancer and other diseases.
(University of Wyoming) A new paper in the journal Animal Behaviour examines whether smarter animals might be better at learning to live in cities -- but, at the same time, also may come into more conflict with humans.
The Trump administration is in the process of drafting an alternative to the World Health Organization’s guidelines on the use of antimicrobial drugs in food producing animals. In resisting the WHO guidelines, which are intended to combat antimicrobial resistance, the move seems to benefit agribusiness. The WHO guidelines, released in November, recommend that fewer antimicrobial drugs be given t...
NewsA new study has found some of the clearest evidence yet that animals can judge time after discovering a set of neurons that turn on like a clock.
If a recent project using Google’s DeepMind were a recipe, you would take a pair of AI systems, images of animals, and a whole lot of computing power. Mix it all together, and you’d get a series of imagined animals dreamed up by one of the AIs. A look through the research paper about the […]
(Duke University) New evidence supports the idea that plants owe their rainbow of fruit colors to the different animals that eat them. Researchers first had to get past the fact that most animals don't see colors quite the way humans do.
