Against overfishing: Protect large spawners and assess stocks correctly
Study: The replenishment potential of exploited fish stocks is systematically overestimated To avoid overfishing the status and reproductive capacity of fish stocks are regularly determined through stock assessments. The fecundity of female fish is here an important factor. Unfortunately, many calculations contain a systematic error as the reproductive capacity of large fish is underestimated.

Orangutans spontaneously use wooden hammers to crack nuts
Using an object to crack nuts is considered one of the most complex tool-using behaviors in the animal kingdom. So far, only chimpanzees, capuchins and macaques have been observed cracking nuts with such tools in the wild. In a new study, Dr. Elisa Bandini and Dr. Claudio Tennie from Early Prehistory and Quaternary Ecology at the University of Tübingen investigated whether other primate species such as orangutans also crack nuts with tools and how the animals can learn to do so.

Bright Lights, Bad Orientation
Bright Lights, Bad Orientation
07/29/2021 Light pollution makes it difficult for dung beetles to find their way. This is probably also true for other nocturnal insects and birds, as researchers suspect. The growth of cities with their streetlights and illuminated buildings has led to brighter nights. This has consequences for animals: the artificial light illuminates them directly, but also lights up the sky, making the stars invisible.
