Animals at risk
24.07.2019 · Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research
Birds are not adapting fast enough to keep up with rapid climate change.
22.07.2019 · Leibniz Institute for Farm Animal Biology
Recycling of organic waste and unparalleled breeding efficiency: the black soldier fly and its protein-rich larvae could be used for animal feed.
22.07.2019 · Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research
Cheetahs in zoos often do not reproduce in the desired manner. Researchers have now found a key to the issue: the age of the mothers at the first pregnancy.
Pollen in the air
22.07.2019 · Leibniz Institute for Tropospheric Research
Pollen not only cause allergies, but also have an influence on the climate. Using laser beams researchers now aim to find out more about the properties of these tiny particles.

In addition to taste perception, bitter receptors also fulfill other physiological functions, for example, in the human immune system. A new substance should help to explore these.
15.07.2019 · Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research
Pigmentation allows insights into important gene functions and regulations. One of the key genes involved in this process has been identified.
15.07.2019 · Museum für Naturkunde
Researchers discovered the oldest completely preserved lily. The 115 million year old Cratolirion is one of the earliest known monocotyledonous plants.
11.07.2019 · German Institute of Human Nutrition
Researchers have found that intermittent fasting reduces pancreatic fat. The latter may play a decisive role in the development of type 2 diabetes.
10.07.2019 · Senckenberg Gesellschaft für Naturforschung
Researchers have solved a 30,000-year-old murder. Contrary to previous expectations, the earliest modern European fell victim to an act of violence.

If Europe wants to succeed with the Paris Climate Agreement, it has to extend the European Emissions Trading Scheme to all sectors and greenhouse gases.
09.07.2019 · Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research Dresden
Inspired by folding art: a new method uses external magnetic fields for the targeted production of three-dimensional micro devices with outstanding performance and high yield.
05.07.2019 · Leibniz Institute for Tropospheric Research
Leibniz scientists have investigated ice cores, which can provide insights on the type of cloud cover in the Arctic over the last 500 years and thus close large gaps in knowledge in climate research.

A new optical method helps surgeons to reliably identify tumors and remove them more precisely.
03.07.2019 · Innovations for High Performance Microelectronics
5G mobile networks are taking shape and will soon be available to everyone. Leibniz Scientists coordinate a project on large scale testing in different sites across Europe.
Reducing food waste
27.06.2019 · ZEW – Leibniz Centre for European Economic Research
To further reduce food waste by facilitating a needs-based distribution of food donations to food banks is the goal of a new project.
Recognizing movement patterns
27.06.2019 · German Primate Center - Leibniz Institute für Primate Research
The research project "Deep Movement Diagnostics" receives around 1.2 million euros for the development of three-dimensional reconstructions of movement patterns.
