Article in Journal of Mammalian Evolution: Micromys minutus as a model to study the arboreality of extinct eutherians

In the Journal of Mammalian Evolution, you can find a paper by Leszek Rychlik (Department of Systematic Zoology) and collaborators (from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle, Paris), in which they analyse vertical locomotion of the Eurasian harvest mouse Micromys minutus on substrates differing in diameter. Harvest mice display some morpho-functional similarities [...]

Publication in Scientific Reports: on the importance of illumination in nest site choice in birds

In recent paper published in Scientific Reports, Paweł Podkowa and Adrian Surmacki (Department of Avian Biology and Ecology) reported the first evidence that light may be important factor influencing nest site choice and nest building strategies in birds. Study performed on Great Tit (Parus major) revealed that secondary cavity nesting birds prefer artificially brightened nest [...]

New publication in Animal Behaviour – on the interspecific differentiation of personalities among shrews

In the last issue of Animal Behaviour, Sophie von Merten, Rafał Zwolak and Leszek Rychlik (Department of Systematic Zoology) published a paper in which they verified the social niche specialization hypothesis predicting that more social species should have more pronounced personality differences. They tested this prediction using four species of shrews that differ in ecology [...]

Polish Press Agency about the research conducted in our Institute “Kin selection promotes female productivity and cooperation between the sexes”

Aleksandra Łukasiewcz, Agnieszka Szubert-Kruszyńska i Jacek Radwan (Evolutionary Biology Lab) found that evolution in groups of relatives results in higher reproductive output of females which partly results from the mitigation of the sexual conflict. (published in Science Advances). More about this research can be found here (in Polish).
