Genome sequencing, paired with a behavioral test, identified several genes linked to anxiety in chickens. Researchers believe the same genes may play a role in mouse and human behavior.
Using an advanced infrared camera, researchers have made methane emissions visible. This may help monitor and measure striking levels of greenhouse gases.
Spider monkeys rely on their sense of smell in order to determine when fruit has ripened to perfection. This is an example of coevolution between the fruit-producing trees and the fruit-eating monkeys.
