The publication in Nature shows the limited potential for plant migration to the north

The research conducted by a team of 18 researchers from 13 European institutions, including Dr. Przemysław Kurek from our Institute, aimed to identify the network of relationships between a group of birds eating fleshy-fruits and plants in the context of transferring their seeds between different types of environments. The research was carried out on a [...]

The Economist mention our research

Since the 1990s, the Department of Water Protection  has conducted research on the bioindicative role of Unio mussels. Initially, the surveys supported by the US Environmental Protection Agency grant, focused on the sensitivity of the swan mussel Anodonta cygnea to various pollutants occurring in surface waters. This research resulted in the implementation of a system for the detection [...]

Spread of parasitic frozen hybrids on the Caribbean island

To understand the dynamics of host-pathogens coevolution and its epidemiological consequences, we need to know how new races of invasive parasites emerge. In our recent work, published in Molecular Ecology (Konczal et al. 2020, link), we shed some light on this process by analyzing whole genomes of Gyrodactylus turnbulli, ectoparasitic flukes infecting guppies. Mateusz Konczal [...]

Publication in Behavioral Ecology on adaptations to urban conditions in a Crocidura species

The prestigious Behavioral Ecology has just published an article (online for now) by Leszek Rychlik and colleagues from Portugal (University of Lisbon) on the differences in metabolism and behavior of greater white-toothed shrews (Crocidura russula) from urban and rural populations. Wild-trapped shrews were brought to lab where their RMR, boldness, and exploration rate were measured. [...]

A paper on shrews in Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology

Recently, an article about the causes of behavioral differentiation among shrews, by Leszek Rychlik and co-authors from Portugal (University of Lisbon) and Germany (University of Munich), appeared, in its final form, in Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology. Comparing the behavior in five species of shrews from several locations in Europe, the authors tested if fast-lived species [...]
