The mowing of green areas is an increasingly relevant issue. Studies have shown that the choice of mowing equipment, mowing date and mowing frequency can have a significant impact on the diversity of insects and arachnids. Although there are many important controls that are highly relevant to the conservation of arthropods on grasslands, many of th...
Recent studies indicate that yawning evolved as a brain cooling mechanism. Given that larger brains have greater thermolytic needs and brain temperature is determined in part by heat production from neuronal activity, it was hypothesized that animals with larger brains and more neurons would yawn longer to produce comparable cooling effects. To tes...
The BioDivKultur project, in which biologists work together with humanities and social scientists, is dedicated to value attitudes, utilization interests, options for action and regulatory possibilities in the design and maintenance of green spaces. The aim is to investigate and test how biodiversity as a value and as an interest in use can become more effective in communicative, political and practical terms in the design of green spaces (understood as the establishment of multi-layered "Biodiversitätskulturen").
