Experimental evidence for the effect of small wind turbine proximity and operation on bird and bat activity
(2012-07-30) - Journal article,
The development of renewable energy technologies such as wind turbines forms a vital part of strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. Although large wind farms generate the majority of wind energy, the small ...
Sterol 14α-demethylase mutation leads to amphotericin B resistance in Leishmania mexicana
(2017-06-16) - Journal article,
Amphotericin B has emerged as the therapy of choice for use against the leishmaniases. Administration of the drug in its liposomal formulation as a single injection is being promoted in a campaign to bring the leishmaniases ...
The genome sequence of the wisent (Bison bonasus)
(2017-04) - Journal article,
The wisent, also known as the European bison, was rescued from extinction approximately 80 years ago through the conservation of 12 individuals. Here, we present the draft genome sequence of a male wisent individual descended ...

(2017-04-13) - Journal article,
How insightful is ‘insight’? New Caledonian crows do not attend to object weight during spontaneous stone dropping
(2016-12-14) - Journal article,
It is highly difficult to pinpoint what is going through an animal’s mind when it appears to solve a problem by ‘insight’. Here, we searched for an information processing error during the emergence of seemingly insightful ...

Allometric growth in reef-building corals
(2017-03-29) - Journal article,
Predicting demographic rates is a critical part of forecasting the future of ecosystems under global change. Here, we test if growth rates can be predicted from morphological traits for a highly diverse group of colonial ...
Species differences in egocentric navigation : the effect of burrowing ecology on a spatial cognitive trait in mice
(2017-05) - Journal article,
Efficient navigation is a critical component of fitness for most animals. While most species use a combination of allocentric (external) and egocentric (internal) cues to navigate through their environment, subterranean ...
Low and annually variable migratory connectivity in a long distance migrant : Whinchats Saxicola rubetra may show a bet-hedging strategy
(2017-10) - Journal article,
The spatial scale of non-breeding areas used by long distance migrant animals can vary from specific, relatively small non-breeding areas for each independent breeding population (high connectivity) to a distribution over ...
Impact of wild prey availability on livestock predation by snow leopards
(2017-06-07) - Journal article,
An increasing proportion of the world’s poor is rearing livestock today, and the global livestock population is growing. Livestock predation by large carnivores and their retaliatory killing is becoming an economic and ...
