Cell division: plant-like properties of animal cell cytokinesis. (1/157)

Recent evidence that a syntaxin is required for cytokinesis in Caenorhabditis elegans embryos suggests that the mechanism of cell division in plant and animal cells may be more similar than previously imagined.  (+info)

Polarization of cell growth in yeast. I. Establishment and maintenance of polarity states. (2/157)

The ability to polarize is a fundamental property of cells. The yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae has proven to be a fertile ground for dissecting the molecular mechanisms that regulate cell polarity during growth. Here we discuss the signaling pathways that regulate polarity. In the second installment of this two-part commentary, which appears in the next issue of Journal of Cell Science, we discuss how the actin cytoskeleton responds to these signals and guides the polarity of essentially all events in the yeast cell cycle. During the cell cycle, yeast cells assume alternative states of polarized growth, which range from tightly focused apical growth to non-focused isotropic growth. RhoGTPases, and in particular Cdc42p, are essential to guiding this polarity. The distribution of Cdc42p at the cell cortex establishes cell polarity. Cyclin-dependent protein kinase, Ras, and heterotrimeric G proteins all modulate yeast cell polarity in part by altering the distribution of Cdc42p. In turn, Cdc42p generates feedback signals to these molecules in order to establish stable polarity states and coordinate cytoskeletal organization with the cell cycle. Given that many of these signaling pathways are present in both fungi and animals, they are probably ancient and conserved mechanisms for regulating polarity.  (+info)

Animal phylogeny: root and branch surgery. (3/157)

Our view of how-many phyla relate to each other is being radically revised by molecular phylogenetics. For example, arthropods and annelids are no longer placed together, but are now considered to be in separate clades. The new tree has important ramifications for developmental biology and genomics.  (+info)

In situ characterization of genetically targeted (green fluorescent) single cells and their microenvironment in an adoptive host. (4/157)

Stable expression of transgene-encoded enhanced green fluorescence protein (eGFP) was used as a sensitive and specific marker to detect in situ donor cells engrafted into different tissues of adoptive hosts. eGFP(+) lymphoid or myeloid cells (eg, CD4(+) T cells or bone marrow-derived dendritic cells) from eGFP-transgenic C57BL/6 donor mice were injected into congenic, immunodeficient RAG1(-/-) C57/BL6 hosts. eGFP(+) cells were detected in the adoptive host from 2 days to 4 weeks after transfer using an optimized method of fixed cryopreservation to process the tissue. This allowed the simple, sensitive, and specific detection of eGFP(+) donor cells in histological sections of transplanted hosts. We further demonstrate that this technique can be combined with other established labeling methods such as 1) immunofluorescent labeling to characterize the host cells interacting with engrafted cells and to determine the phenotype of the engrafted cells in situ; 2) terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase-mediated dUTP nick-end labeling staining to detect apoptotic death of engrafted and autochthonous cell populations; and 3) fluorescent antibody labeling of incorporated bromodeoxyuridine to measure the fraction of proliferating cells in the graft.  (+info)

Evaluating hypotheses of basal animal phylogeny using complete sequences of large and small subunit rRNA. (5/157)

We studied the evolutionary relationships among basal metazoan lineages by using complete large subunit (LSU) and small subunit (SSU) ribosomal RNA sequences for 23 taxa. After identifying competing hypotheses, we performed maximum likelihood searches for trees conforming to each hypothesis. Kishino-Hasegawa tests were used to determine whether the data (LSU, SSU, and combined) reject any of the competing hypotheses. We also conducted unconstrained tree searches, compared the resulting topologies, and calculated bootstrap indices. Shimodaira-Hasegawa tests were applied to determine whether the data reject any of the topologies resulting from the constrained and unconstrained tree searches. LSU, SSU, and the combined data strongly contradict two assertions pertaining to sponge phylogeny. Hexactinellid sponges are not likely to be the basal lineage of a monophyletic Porifera or the sister group to all other animals. Instead, Hexactinellida and Demospongia form a well-supported clade of siliceous sponges, Silicea. It remains unclear, on the basis of these data alone, whether the calcarean sponges are more closely related to Silicea or to nonsponge animals. The SSU and combined data reject the hypothesis that Bilateria is more closely related to Ctenophora than it is to Cnidaria, whereas LSU data alone do not refute either hypothesis. LSU and SSU data agree in supporting the monophyly of Bilateria, Cnidaria, Ctenophora, and Metazoa. LSU sequence data reveal phylogenetic structure in a data set with limited taxon sampling. Continued accumulation of LSU sequences should increase our understanding of animal phylogeny.  (+info)

Reconstructing/deconstructing the earliest eukaryotes: how comparative genomics can help. (6/157)

Birth of piglets derived from porcine zygotes cultured in a chemically defined medium. (7/157)

We evaluated the in vitro development of porcine zygotes that were cultured in a novel culture medium, porcine zygote medium (PZM), under different conditions and compared to in vivo development. The viability of these zygotes to full term after culture was also evaluated by embryo transfer to recipients. Porcine single-cell zygotes were collected from gilts on Day 2 after hCG injection. Culture of zygotes in PZM containing 3 mg/ml of BSA (PZM-3) produced better results in terms of proportion of Day 6 blastocysts, Day 8 hatching rate, and numbers of inner cell mass (ICM) cells and total cells in Day 8 embryos than that in North Carolina State University (NCSU)-23 medium. In culture with PZM-3, embryo development was optimized in an atmosphere of 5% CO2:5% O2:90% N2 compared to 5% CO2 in air. The ICM and total cell numbers in Day 6 embryos cultured in PZM-3 or in PZM-3 in which BSA was replaced with 3 mg/ml of polyvinyl alcohol (PZM-4) were also greater than those of NCSU-23 but less than those developed in vivo. However, no difference was found in the ratio of ICM to total cells among embryos developed in PZM-3, PZM-4, or in vivo. When the Day 6 embryos that developed in PZM-4 (99 embryos) or in vivo (100 embryos) were each transferred into six recipients, no difference was found in the farrowing rate (83.3% for both treatments) and in the number of piglets born (33 and 42 piglets, respectively). Our results indicate that porcine zygotes can develop into blastocysts in a chemically defined medium and to full term by transfer to recipients after culture.  (+info)

A Caenorhabditis elegans TGF-beta, DBL-1, controls the expression of LON-1, a PR-related protein, that regulates polyploidization and body length. (8/157)

Using cDNA-based array analysis combined with double-stranded RNA interference (dsRNAi), we have identified yk298h6 as a target gene of Caenorhabditis elegans TGF-beta signaling. Worms overexpressing dbl-1, a TGF-beta ligand, are 16% longer than wild type. Array analysis shows yk298h6 to be one of several genes suppressed in such worms. Disruption of yk298h6 function by dsRNAi also resulted in long worms, suggesting that it is a negative regulator of body length. yk298h6 was then mapped to, and shown to be identical to, lon-1, a known gene that affects body length. lon-1 encodes a 312 amino acid protein with a motif sequence that is conserved from plants to humans. Expression studies confirm that LON-1 is repressed by DBL-1, suggesting that LON-1 is a novel downstream component of the C.elegans TGF-beta growth regulation pathway. Consistent with this, LON-1 is expressed mainly in the larval and adult hypodermis and has dose-dependent effects on body length associated with changes in hypodermal ploidy, but not hypodermal cell proliferation.  (+info)

Reproductive data from the upper Midwest are meager for the striped skunk (Mephitis mephitis), a common North American carnivore. We provide data on some age-related reproductive attributes of 178 female striped skunks collected at 19 sites in eastcentral North Dakota and westcentral Minnesota in 1979-1981 and 1987-1991. Seventy-four percent of the females were 1 year old; 95% were pregnant or parous when collected. Thirteen of 873 (1.5%) embryos in 123 pregnant females were being resorbed. The overall mean (±1 SE) litter size estimated from live embryos was 7.2 ± 0.4. Means of litter-size estimates were similar for females ≥1 year old, but annual estimates of litter size differed among years for all females combined. For females from the interval 1979-1981 and 1990, the mean implantation date based on embryo size was 4 March (±1.6 days). Potential litters were composed of a mean of 55 ± 3% females.

Doing Data Science is collaboration between course instructor Rachel Schutt, Senior VP of Data Science at News Corp, and data science consultant Cathy ONeil, a senior data scientist at Johnson Research Labs, who attended and blogged about the course.. Review: Dasypus novemcinctus Whats the animal featured on the cover? The animal on the cover of Doing Data Science is a nine-banded armadillo (Dasypus novemcinctus), a mammal widespread throughout North, Central, and South America. From Latin, novemcinctus literally translates to nine-banded (after the telescoping rings of armor around the midsection), though the animal can actually have between 7 to 11 bands. The three-banded armadillo native to South America is the only armadillo that can roll into a ball for protection; other species have too many plates. The armadillos skin is perhaps its most notable feature. Brownish-gray and leathery, it is composed of scaly plates called scutes that cover everything but its underside.. The ...
Kestrels can hover in still air, even indoors in barns. Because they face towards any slight wind[1] when hovering, the common kestrel is called a windhover in some areas. Unusual for falcons, plumage often differs between male and female, although as is usual with monogamous raptors the female is slightly larger than the male. This allows a pair to fill different feeding niches over their home range. Kestrels are bold and have adapted well to human encroachment, nesting in buildings and hunting by major roads. Kestrels do not build their own nests, but use nests built by other species. Most species termed kestrels appear to form a distinct clade among the falcons, as suggested by comparison of mtDNA cytochrome b sequence data [2] and morphology. This seems to have diverged from other Falco around the Miocene-Pliocene boundary (Messinian to Zanclean, or about 7-3.5 mya). The most basal true kestrels are three species from Africa and its surroundings which lack a malar stripe, and in one case ...
The effect of regular aerobic exercise on body fat is negligible; however, other forms of exercise may have a greater impact on body composition. For example, emerging research examining high-intensity intermittent exercise (HIIE) indicates that it may be more effective at reducing subcutaneous and abdominal body fat than other types of exercise. The mechanisms underlying the fat reduction induced by HIIE, however, are undetermined. Regular HIIE has been shown to significantly increase both aerobic and anaerobic fitness. HIIE also significantly lowers insulin resistance and results in a number of skeletal muscle adaptations that result in enhanced skeletal muscle fat oxidation and improved glucose tolerance. This review summarizes the results of HIIE studies on fat loss, fitness, insulin resistance, and skeletal muscle. Possible mechanisms underlying HIIE-induced fat loss and implications for the use of HIIE in the treatment and prevention of obesity are also discussed.

The strong habitat effect revealed the unsuitability of intensive arable lands with respect to extensive grasslands for lesser kestrels. Notably, artichokes, a winter-intensive crop, proved to be a high-quality habitat as they were associated with survival values equal to those of grassland. This is likely due to prey availability and reveals that non-traditional crops may provide suitable habitats for lesser kestrels. Information theory gave strong support to the negative influence of colony size on fecundity, albeit a small one, for its positive effect on survival probability. The estimated population growth rate was negative for all three habitats, indicating a decline over time and urging conservation actions in all of the areas studied. This decline was much higher in colonies surrounded by arable fields. In sensitivity analyses, λ indicated that adult survival was the parameter with the greatest effect on population growth, followed by survival of fledglings and fecundity. Our study ...
Background. With their Pan-American distribution, long-nosed armadillos (genus Dasypus) constitute an understudied model for Neotropical biogeography. This genus currently comprises seven recognized species, the nine-banded armadillo (D. novemcinctus) having the widest distribution ranging from Northern Argentina to the South-Eastern US. With their broad diversity of habitats, nine-banded armadillos provide a useful model to explore the effects of climatic and biogeographic events on morphological diversity at a continental scale. Methods. Based on a sample of 136 skulls of Dasypus spp., including 112 specimens identified as D. novemcinctus, we studied the diversity and pattern of variation of internal paranasal cavities, which were reconstructed virtually using µCT-scanning or observed through bone transparency. Results. Our qualitative analyses of paranasal sinuses and recesses successfully retrieved a taxonomic differentiation between the traditional species D. kappleri, D. pilosus and D.

Abstract. The long-nosed armadillos of the Dasypus genus are the richest and more widespread extant xenarthra. In 1933, the prominent Argentinean mammalogist José Yepes studied specimens collected by Salvador Mazza and named a new species: D. mazzai. Several authors interpreted that the holotype of the species was a juvenile of D. novemcinctus. In 1995, Vizcaíno support the synonymy with D. novemcinctus but accepted the existence of an endemic species of northwestern Argentina that dedicated to Yepes (D. yepesi). Morphological studies have questioned the synonymy of the species with D. novemcinctus. In this contribution we reviewed the identity of the type material by sequencing a DNA fragment of 212 bp, product of the 16S ribosomal unit of Dasypodidae. Both samples of the holotype (bone and muscle) and of a specimen from the north of Santa Fe province have a 100% similarity with the D. yepesi / D. sabanicola sequences available in the GenBank. These results indicate that the type specimen of ...

Rock kestrels feed on a wide variety of organisms.[5] They eat primarily invertebrates, but have been known to consume rodents, reptiles and birds.[3][5] Two primary forms of hunting are employed: hover hunting and perch hunting.[6] Hover hunting describes the method whereby the kestrel remains stationary in the air with minimal wing flapping by utilizing updrafts.[7] Hover hunting generally happens at medium to high windspeeds.[7] It is usually small prey (such as insects) which are caught via this method, and are subsequently eaten during flight.[7] Perch hunting is when the kestrel utilizes either natural (for instance cliffs and trees) or artificial (for instance electricity pylons and telephone poles) perches to scan the surrounding area for prey.[7] Rock kestrels have been observed following baboons through grasslands and catching the insect species flushed out.[6] There are also reports of rock kestrels robbing nests for young birds and eating termites on the floor.[7] Their call is a ...

conditions, taking into account the many secondary effects elicited by these climatic factors. References made below to fat levels for specific populations and seasons apply to data given in Figures 8 and 9; corresponding weather data are given in the section on weather and in appendix A. The effects of the north-south temperature gradient prevalent in the winter months is demonstrated by differences in body fat levels for the three populations during that season. In addition, the effects of the harsher conditions experienced during season 5 are shown by the significantly lower fat levels for the Georgia and south Florida populations relative to those for season 1. The effects of drought are seen in the responses of the south Florida populations during the spring of 1976 (season 2) and of all three populations during the spring and summer of 1977 (seasons 6 and 7).

It ranges in color from brownish-black to grey, with yellowish white hair on its underside. The carapace is constructed of tough, leathery skin and dermal plates on its back, head, tail, and sides. The nine-banded armadillo has nine jointed bands across its midsection which allow for flexibility in movement. This armadillo ranges in size from 15-17 inches in length, with a ringed tail that measures between 14-16 inches long. The nine-banded armadillo has four toes on each of its front feet and five toes on each of its hind feet. It also has strong claws for digging and burrowing. The armadillo has a small head with long ears and a pointed snout that it uses to forage for food ...

The eastern-spotted skunk is more weasel-like in body shape than the more familiar striped skunk. The eastern spotted skunk has four stripes on its back which are broken in pattern, giving it a spotted appearance. Also, they are more agile and vigilant than the other skunks dwelling in North America. In addition to p

The first few years I lived at my current house the starlings would get my cherries just before they were ready to be picked. Then one day in the third year, I heard an interesting kind of a bird screech. I looked up and a kestrel was chasing away the starlings. Ever since then I have had a wonderful crop of cherries with no bird problems. I also get all my blueberries, which were planted after the kestrel came. I have seen it several times this year, so I believe it is still going to protect my trees. I think you can attract a kestrel by building an appropriate nesting house and placing it on a tall enough pole ...

A succinct summary of the number one cause of noise in photography Midwife. However, that brings up the question - since I dont shoot anything over 400 ISO (and the shot of the Kestrel was at 200 ISO), whats the main issue creating all the noise in my pics? Is it that Im not getting close enough or using a big enough lens (300mm) and thus Im enlarging my shots beyond what my camera can really grab? A possibility, but I would think if that were the case, my closer shots - like the one of the female Cardinal - wouldnt be so noisy, but they seem like they are just as noisy to me. I think I enlarged the female Cardinal shot by .25X...maybe .5X, but not that much. OTOH, I think I enlarged the Kestrel by 4X, which can be quite a bit on a 200 ISO shot ...

The prevalence of agglutinating antibodies to Toxoplasma gondii was examined in striped skunks (Mephitis mephitis), opossums (Didelphis virginiana), and raccoons (Procyon lotor) from 8 cities in Connecticut. Ten (42%) of the 24 striped skunks, 2 of 7 (29%) opossums, and 12 of 12 (100%) raccoons were positive at dilutions of 1:50 or greater. These results suggest that T. gondii is prevalent in the environment, or prey items, or both, of these omnivores in Connecticut ...
Leprosy (also known as Hansens disease) is an infectious peripheral neurological disorder caused by Mycobacterium leprae that even today leaves millions of individuals worldwide with life-long disabilities. The specific mechanisms by which this bacterium induces nerve injury remain largely unknown, mainly owing to ethical and practical limitations in obtaining affected human nerve samples. In addition to humans, nine-banded armadillos (Dasypus novemcinctus) are the only other natural host of M. leprae, and they develop a systemically disseminated disease with extensive neurological involvement. M. leprae is an obligate intracellular parasite that cannot be cultivated in vitro. Because of the heavy burdens of bacilli they harbor, nine-banded armadillos have become the organism of choice for propagating large quantities of M. leprae, and they are now advancing as models of leprosy pathogenesis and nerve damage. Although armadillos are exotic laboratory animals, the recently completed whole genome ...

Not only are SM and fetishism natural parts of human diversity. SM-type behavior is known even in the animal world where Ford & Beach (1951) contend that biting and aggressive behavior are common. Kinsey et al. (1953) found SM-type behavior prevalent in animal cultures. They noted that twenty-four different mammals other than humans bite during coitus, and Gebhard (1976:163) concluded that from a phylogenetic viewpoint, it is no surprise to find sadomasochism in human beings. According to Bagemihl (1999) the animal kingdom embraces a whole spectrum of sexual behaviour like different kinds of fetishism, transgenderism, erotic biting and even non-violent play-fights.. Ethology: Sign Stimuli.. Research by Tinbergen and others showed that stimuli stronger than the naturally appearing sign stimulus may be more effective in releasing behavior. For example, oyster catchers and other birds prefer to sit on a huge super-normal egg rather than on a normal-sized egg. This phenomenon is seen in other ...
Aposematism, or the use of conspicuous contrasting coloration which warns potential predators that the bearer possesses some noxious quality, has been greatly understudied in mammals. I propose to examine aposematic signaling in mammalian carnivores with respect to the ecological and morphological factors which enhance detection, potential defensive strategies and the ultimate mortality consequences of these signals. To evaluate these parameters I plan to use a series of field experiments involving the alternate presentation of taxidermy mounts of striped skunks (Mephitis mephitis) and grey foxes (Urocyon cinereoargenteus) at baited camera stations. I will use motion-sensitive digital cameras with infra-red illumination to record frequency and proximity of heterospecific and conspecific visits to these mounts ...

  • The government also protects rare animal species, such as the Arabian oryx, Arabian leopard, mountain goat , and loggerhead turtle. (
  • Within species, there is variation among populations, groups of animals in a particular area that interbreed. (
  • A new species develops if a population which has become geographically isolated from its parental species acquires during this period of isolation characters which promote or guarantee reproductive isolation when the external barriers break down. (
  • A species consists of a group of populations which replace each other geographically or ecologically and of which the neighboring ones integrate or hybridise wherever they are in contact or which are potentially capable of doing so (with one or more of the populations) in those cases where contact is prevented by geographical or ecological barriers. (
  • A species is a reproductive community of populations (reproductively isolated from others) that occupies a specific niche in nature. (
  • In the 20th century, the Iberian lynx population had declined because of overhunting, poaching, fragmentation of suitable habitats, and the population decline of its main prey species, the European rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus), caused by myxomatosis and rabbit haemorrhagic disease. (
  • The species has low adaptability - it continued to rely heavily on rabbits (75% of its food intake) despite the latter's repeated population crashes due to myxomatosis and rabbit haemorrhagic disease. (
  • Populations or individuals with combinations of features associated with one or other phenotype probably do not represent "hybrids" of two species, but various degrees of genetic introgression, or even primary clines of diverging evolutionary lineages, and they could perhaps differ in different regions of Sulawesi, depending on the degree of gene flow, and the characters affected. (
  • This species is considered Endangered because its population is estimated to be less than 2,500 mature individuals, its rate of decline is believed to be greater than 20% over two generations (14 to 18 years), and no subpopulation is believed to number more than 250 mature individuals. (
  • Research in the Molecular Ecology Group covers a wide range of studies and species, but our focus is on evolutionary process and genetic structure in natural populations. (
  • As a result, populations of most vulture species around the world are now either declining or on the brink of extinction. (
  • In some cases, if the new species is not a close copy of the original, the group suggests that a new species name be given, such as Mammuthus recr. (
  • Up to 25 extinct animal species have been proposed as candidates for de-extinction (4) on the basis of their high public profiles, availability of well-preserved DNA, existence of closely related species who may serve as host or surrogate parents, and availability of suitable habitat in the case of planned reintroductions (1). (
  • Listed as Near Threatened because although the species is common within its restricted range, and its populations appear to be stable (if not increasing), its extent of occurrence is less than 5,000 km 2 , and the extent and quality of its habitat is declining, thus making the species close to qualifying for Vulnerable under criterion B1. (
  • This synanthropic species may play a role in the transmissibility of the agent thus being a risk to the susceptible population. (
  • In the southern part of South America, the puma has controlled the population of guanaco and other species for many years. (
  • Some animal species, such as chimpanzees and goats , are self-aware. (
  • Animal behavior research is particularly relevant to the study of human behavior when it comes to the preservation of a species, or how an animal's behavior helps it survive. (
  • As a predator at the top of its food chain , the cougar helps keep populations of prey species in balance. (
  • To investigate this 'social bottleneck' hypothesis, we examined the association between group size and four network structure metrics in 43 vertebrate and invertebrate species. (
  • Across primates, malaria prevalence increases with group size in comparative tests [ 7 , 8 ], and a recent study found evidence for positive selection on genes related to immunity in species living in larger groups [ 9 ]. (
  • These localized extinctions make it hard for species to maintain a viable population. (
  • Given that most animals live solitarily, why might some species live in groups? (
  • there's a major problem with communication about biodiversity with all the focus on species, when the focus ought to be on the loss of populations - it's going on now thousands of times more rapidly than it has in the last 65 million years, decaying our ecosystem services. (
  • to add a new subsection to govern certain activities with U.S. captive-bred populations of three antelope species that have been proposed for listing as endangered, should they become listed. (
  • This system allows you to specify a range of animals per species and the system will keep the population within the ranges by spawning more animals or killing animals. (
  • But there were no bats being sold at the animal market in Wuhan, China, where the current outbreak is thought to have begun, suggesting an intermediate host species was likely involved. (
  • The first is the study of each species across all levels of biological organization, molecule to cell to organism to population to ecosystem. (
  • In this study, researchers measured species population declines on a global scale that may contribute to the sixth mass extinction. (
  • This interactive explores examples of what can happen when there are changes in the population size of one species in an ecosystem. (
  • The following classroom-ready resources complement the film Some Animals Are More Equal Than Others: Trophic Cascades and Keystone Species . (

  • I am also interested in pure and applied aspects of avian population ecology, including long-term studies of seabirds, parrot conservation and the ecology of urban bird populations. (
  • Furthermore, using a brief review of existing work on the behavioral ecology of animal personality variation in the zebra finch-one of the more widely used model systems in this field-we stress the importance of understanding the ecology of the chosen study animal, and the problems that are likely to arise by neglecting to identify or account for the structure of behavioral variation that is often likely to occur. (
  • In keeping with the broad consensus in the evolutionary and behavioral ecology literature, we use the term personality variation to refer here to the existence of substantial variation in behavior among individuals within a population, with at least some individuals showing behavior that is consistent (i.e., individual differences remain stable) across time and/or contexts. (
  • Empirical studies of animal personality in the context of ecology and evolution, have been influenced by the long-established body of research conducted in the fields of animal and human psychology that is typically focused on characterizing inter-individual variation in behavior from ratings (by either the focal subjects or expert observers of focal subjects) derived from questionnaires ( Gosling, 2001 ). (
  • However, perhaps as a consequence, most of the recent empirical studies of animal personality published in the fields of evolution or ecology have been almost entirely descriptive and "question free. (
  • Within this aim we use a wide range of field- and lab-based techniques to investigate key questions in ecology, evolution and behaviour of wild populations. (
  • This book is the first major synthesis of theory and empirical knowledge regarding the ecology and epidemiology of infectious diseases in natural, unmanaged, animal and plant populations. (
  • Other current and recent projects include sex allocation of galling aphids, sociobiology of honey bees and yellowjackets, pollination ecology of solitary bees, shoaling behavior of cyprinid fish, migration in Black-tailed deer, and population biology of Spotted Owls. (
  • Depending on the specialization and dissertation topic, the graduates of the programme are familiar with current and advanced working methods and knowledge particularly in the field of plant and animal taxonomy, biosystematics, ecology, palaeoecology, parasitology, hydrobiology, bioinformatics, biostatistics, molecular biology and genetics. (
  • The researchers observed the behavior of two different groups of wild chimpanzees followed by the Taï Chimpanzee Project. (
  • However, inadequate understanding of disease transmission and animal behavior can lead to infectious diseases, rabies exposures, injuries, and other health problems among visitors, especially children, in these settings. (
  • The study of animal personality variation promises to provide significant new insight into the way that behavior evolves in animals, along with its ecological and evolutionary influences. (
  • The study of animal behavior is a cornerstone of psychology for several reasons. (
  • By studying animal behavior, humans can also learn more about their own behavior-a field known as comparative psychology. (
  • Whether they are "conscious" in the same way that humans are, however, has been widely debated in both the fields of ethology (the study of animal behavior) and psychology. (
  • A remarkable fact about Tamaliaaphids is that they sometimes initiate galls in groups (rather than singly, as do all other known galling aphids), raising questions about what factors favor this social behavior. (

  • In humans, oxytocin has been found to trigger a tendency to defend and cooperate with fellow group members during intergroup social dilemma games. (
  • This result is especially interesting since in humans, in-group out-group perception is a well-documented phenomenon that emerges early in childhood and is thought to be uniquely human. (
  • Others, including animal rights writers, have defended variants of a laissez-faire position, which argues that humans should not harm wild animals, but that humans should not intervene to reduce natural harms that they experience. (
  • Some have asserted that refusing to help animals in situations where humans would consider it wrong not to help humans is an example of speciesism. (
  • Some advocates argue that humans already successfully help animals in the wild, such as vaccinating and healing injured and sick animals, rescuing animals in fires and other natural disasters, feeding hungry animals, providing thirsty animals with water, and caring for orphaned animals. (
  • For these reasons, they claim it is important to raise awareness about the issue of wild animal suffering, spread the idea that humans should help animals suffering in these situations and encourage research into effective measures which can be taken in the future to reduce the suffering of these individuals, without causing greater harms. (
  • Diseases called zoonoses or zoonotic diseases can be transmitted from animals to humans. (
  • Vultures serve as a barrier to prevent diseases from proliferating in dead animals and spreading to humans, whom they rarely come in contact with. (
  • Because of the use of agriculture and animal domestication, humans began to settle into villages. (
  • Monkeys are the animal genetically most similar to humans. (
  • That outbreak is believed to have started when a coronavirus jumped from animals-most likely civet cats-to humans, resulting in a type of disease called a zoonosis. (
  • Researchers say the vast decline of vulture populations in some parts of the world will have serious consequences for ecosystems and human populations alike. (
  • Vultures in some parts of the world are in danger of disappearing, which, according to a recent report by researchers at the University of Utah, would have serious consequences for ecosystems and human populations alike. (
