Scientists study parallels in aging Barbary macaques and humans: the monkeys also become more selective as they age. Selectivity appears to be deeply rooted in primate evolution.
Scientists have described three new mouse lemur species. They live in the South and East of Madagascar and increase the number of known mouse lemur species to 24.
Scientists show that the aroma of ripe fruits may be an adaptation whose function is to attract primates to consume the fruits and consequently disperse their seeds.
Hormonally active substances can affect the hormonal system and the sexual development of animals. Artificial estrogen can lead to a complete feminization of genetic males.
Mating of European and Eastern tree frogs in the lowlands of Poland results in hybrid frogs that carry sex chromosomes from both species.
The first life-sized skeleton model of the giant predatory dinosaur in the world goes on display at the Museum für Naturkunde in Berlin.
Scientists reach the conclusion that the presumably largest apes in geological history died due to their insufficient adaptability.
Berlin has a new cultural highlight, crowd-puller and a unique research object. Tristan Otto (Tristan for short) is one of the best-preserved specimens of Tyrannosaurus rex in the world.
When animals “differ from the rest” they may be able to conquer new ecological niches. Scientists have provided evidence for this phenomenon.
Researchers postulated they would have found the first evidence that non-human primates can learn different “referential calls” for the same object. Julia Fischer took a critical look at the data.
