Saving large mammals such as elephants and rhino from extinction could be made more effective by focusing efforts on individual species as well as their habitats. View News Article (2005-07-25)

Oxygen increase caused mammals to triumph, researchers say
The first, high resolution continuous record of oxygen concentration in the earth's atmosphere shows that a sharp rise in oxygen about 50 million years ago gave mammals the evolutionary boost they needed to dominate the planet. View News Article (2005-09-30)

Mangrove-dependent animals globally threatened

It shows that the number of mammal deaths on roads is directly related to... View News Article (2002-05-29)

More evidence mammals, fruit flies share make-up on function of biological clocks
A study by researchers at New York University and the University of London offers additional evidence that mammals and fruit flies share a common genetic makeup that determines the function of their internal biological clocks. The study appears in the latest issue of Current Biology. View News Article (2006-03-07)
