Migratory animals carry more parasites, says study

(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.

In the race of life, the tortoise beats the hare every time

(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 ...

Roles of emotional support animals examined

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.

Between 3Rs: Do New Gene Editing Tools Mean Fewer Animals?

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.

Animal Cruelty May Indicate Child Abuse

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...

Most Americans Accept GE Animals for Human Health, Study

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...

Researchers Get a Peek at How Other Animals See the World

Study sheds light on how brain lets animals hunt for food by following smells

(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.

Species' longevity depends on brain cell numbers

(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.

Slowing Global Warming Could Save a Majority of Earths Species

Following the ultimate goal of the Paris Agreement would benefit plants and animals around the world, according to a new study.

Camouflaged plants use the same tricks as animals

(University of Exeter) Plants use many of the same methods as animals to camouflage themselves, a new study shows.

Neuroscientists find first evidence animals can mentally replay past events

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.

Inbred animals face greater threat from changes to environment

(University of Edinburgh) Animals that are inbred make mistakes in response to changes in their surroundings, at a cost to themselves and their young.

STAT Plus: FDA commissioner says genetically engineering animals and developing human gene therapies are intertwined

Currently, the FDA generally treats genetically engineered animals as “new animal drugs.”

ASU Study Finds Animals Can Use Muscle as an Internal Water Source

As our climate changes, the availability of water is also changing, leaving animals with limited or unreliable supplies of this critical resource

Lifespan and sexual maturity depends on your brain more than your body

(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.
