This may sound counterintuitive, but reducing the number of animals in a population can help the remaining individuals to survive through the winter. Harvesting or other means of regulating an animal population can sometimes have a positive effect by reducing the competition for food, researchers from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) have found. This only makes sense for species limited by food availability. The results of the study have been published in the journal Ecology Letters and could prove useful in managing various species.

Fat tissue plays an important role in human health. However, our fat tissue loses function as we age, which can lead to type 2 diabetes, obesity, cancer and other ailments. High levels of lifelong exercise seem to counteract this deterioration. This, according to research at the University of Copenhagen, where biologists studied the link between aging, exercise and fat tissue function in Danish men.

The combination of mathematical modeling and experiments identifies the difference in molecular clockworks of the master and slave clock neurons in Drosophila. This solves the long-standing mystery of the molecular mechanisms underlying how the circadian (~24h) clock can exhibit paradoxical characteristics of robustness (strong rhythms), and plasticity (flexible adaption).

Dr. Helen Genova: "Children on the autism spectrum may benefit less from virtual services. While remote delivery of educational and therapy services may be a convenient way for schools and facilities to remain open when in-person attendance carries risks, the long-term negative effects for children on the autism spectrum may be significant. To help them continue to achieve their educational goals, autistic children may need alternative ways to keep pace with their peers.”
