Scientists find that wolves can show attachment toward humans
When it comes to showing affection towards people, many dogs are naturals. Researchers now report that the remarkable ability to show attachment behaviour toward human caregivers also exists in wolves.
A new study shows that we can create and/or select plants that can better recover from drought without affecting the size of the plant or seed yield by genetically modifying their lignin chemistry. These results could be used in both agriculture and forestry to tackle future climate challenges.
While millions around the world face the threat of famine or malnutrition, the production of feed for livestock and fish is tying up limited natural resources that could be used to produce food for people. New research from Stockholm University, published in Nature Food, shows how adjustment to the feeding of livestock and fish could maintain production while making more food available for people.
