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 ...
Is all learning innovation?
(2007) - Journal article,
Research on animal innovation is an underdeveloped field, and for this reason we welcome the efforts Ramsey and colleagues have made to stimulate its study in wild populations. However, we feel that in attempting to find ...
Coda vocalizations recorded in breeding areas are almost entirely produced by mature female sperm whales (Physeter macrocephalus)
(2006) - Journal article,
We investigated the use and function of coda communication by sperm whales (Physeter macrocephalus L., 1758 (=Physeter Catodon L., 1758)) Codas are stereotyped patterns of clicks often made by sperm whales in social contexts. ...
Living in stable social groups is associated with reduced brain size in woodpeckers (Picidae)
(2017-03) - Journal article,
Group size predicts brain size in primates and some other mammal groups, but no such relationship has been found in birds. Instead, stable pair-bonding and bi-parental care have been identified as correlates of larger ...
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 ...
Successful suction-cup tagging of a small delphinid species, Stenella attenuata : insights into whistle characteristics
(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 ...
The extension of biology through culture
(2017-07-25) - Journal article,
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 ...
