When mothers and fathers work long hours, their preschool children are more likely to become overweight or obese.
31.07.2019 · Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine Research
Wastewater management is a major problem in rapidly developing nature tourism communities along tropical coasts. A new project aims to develop sustainable solutions.
Better quality control
31.07.2019 · Leibniz-Institute for Food Systems Biology at the Technical University of Munich
A new methodology for the simultaneous analysis of odorants and tastants could simplify and accelerate the quality control of food in the future.

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.
