Starvation has a positive impact on stem cells in Planarians. Researchers now succeeded in decoding the underlying molecular mechanisms.
29.07.2019 · German Primate Center – Leibniz Institute for Primate Research
If tropical rainforests are destroyed, they will recover very slowly, if at all. A long-term study now reveals the role monkeys play in the regeneration of these important ecosystems.
Animals at risk
24.07.2019 · Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research
Birds are not adapting fast enough to keep up with rapid climate change.
22.07.2019 · Leibniz Institute for Farm Animal Biology
Recycling of organic waste and unparalleled breeding efficiency: the black soldier fly and its protein-rich larvae could be used for animal feed.
22.07.2019 · Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research
Cheetahs in zoos often do not reproduce in the desired manner. Researchers have now found a key to the issue: the age of the mothers at the first pregnancy.
Pollen in the air
22.07.2019 · Leibniz Institute for Tropospheric Research
Pollen not only cause allergies, but also have an influence on the climate. Using laser beams researchers now aim to find out more about the properties of these tiny particles.

A new 3D view of the Milky Way reveals the central Galactic bar for the first time.
16.07.2019 · Leibniz-Institute for Food Systems Biology at the Technical University of Munich
In addition to taste perception, bitter receptors also fulfill other physiological functions, for example, in the human immune system. A new substance should help to explore these.
15.07.2019 · Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research
Pigmentation allows insights into important gene functions and regulations. One of the key genes involved in this process has been identified.
15.07.2019 · Museum für Naturkunde
Researchers discovered the oldest completely preserved lily. The 115 million year old Cratolirion is one of the earliest known monocotyledonous plants.
11.07.2019 · German Institute of Human Nutrition
Researchers have found that intermittent fasting reduces pancreatic fat. The latter may play a decisive role in the development of type 2 diabetes.
10.07.2019 · Senckenberg Gesellschaft für Naturforschung
Researchers have solved a 30,000-year-old murder. Contrary to previous expectations, the earliest modern European fell victim to an act of violence.
