Collectively, environmental stakeholders are just as smart as scientific experts, as a study shows. Researchers advocate more systematic use of swarm intelligence.
Loss of microRNA leads to fibrosis
15.01.2020 · Leibniz Institute on Aging - Fritz Lipmann Institute
Researchers have identified microRNA molecules that are responsible for the development of fibrosis and thus promote the progression of cancer.
In search of balance

Land-use impacts biodiversity in the long-term
07.01.2020 · Senckenberg Gesellschaft für Naturforschung
Changes from grassland to cropland that happened as long as 20 years ago impact the biodiversity of species inhabiting agroecosystems in the long-term, i.e. today.
Together you're less alone
07.01.2020 · German Primate Center - Leibniz Institute for Primate Research
