wire - news in brief
Some anonymously published papers on evolution far predate the publication of Charles Darwin's Origin of Species (1859).
Introduction: Research by Chris Broeckhoven (UAntwerp) reveals function of lizards' scales. Crocodiles, armadillos, turtles and many other animals are equipped with scales -a kind of body armour.
Million-year old soils prove their impact on a successful climate agreement To drive back global warming to below 2°C, carbon storage in soils plays an important part, since soils can store a notable share of the human CO 2 emissions.
Introduction: A study by Rebecca Van Coppenolle shows that, among others, the Niger and Mississippi delta benefit strongly from 'nature-based' protection of land and people. Low-lying river deltas worldwide are vulnerable to coastal flooding, and the risk is growing as coastal population density and projected storm surge intensity increase.
Introduction: Last week it was announced which new fellows will initiate a FWO-funded PhD or postdoc in the next year.
Cancer researchers have shown that some patients with T-cell leukaemia produce too much of the BCL-2 protein.
The phylogenetic tree of the Ebola epidemic of 2013-2016 doesn't just tell us how the Ebola virus was able to evolve: it also reveals which events and preventive measures accelerated or slowed down the spreading of the virus. Between 2013 and 2016, West Africa suffered the most severe outbreak of Ebola ever recorded.
Introduction: UAntwerp and Hudson researched the personality profiles of more than 500 leaders. The idea that women in leadership roles are fundamentally different to their male colleagues is widespread.
Introduction: New reimbursement rules make GPs more cautious when prescribing antibiotics. UAntwerp's iCAREdata project shows immediate impact of stricter conditions.
Introduction: UAntwerp scientists carried out in-depth study of 'invisible wave of separations' and conclude: couples who do not marry tend to split up much more quickly.
The university has previously taken measures to reduce its ecological footprint, such as energy reduction procedures in the buildings.
The extensive study was published in this week's edition of the leading scientific journal JAMA Neurology.
