How the house sparrow came to be
10. aug. 2018
How is it that the small, charismatic house sparrow has become so closely associated with us? CEES researchers have been trying to answer this question by sequencing the DNA of populations of sparrows from across Europe and the Middle East.

How the house sparrows came to be

House sparrows are closely associated with humans and are found in most parts of the world. By investigating the DNA of several species of sparrows, researchers at CEES have shown that the house sparrow diverged from a sparrow in the Middle East – and started to digest starch-rich foods – when humans developed agriculture some 11 000 years ago.
Skjelett fra Oslos middelalderby forteller om en glemt og dødelig feber
25. sep. 2018 11:47
Lopper og lus er smittekilder for blant annet pest og flekktyfus, som har kostet millioner av menneskeliv opp gjennom århundrene. Nå har et mer enn 500 år gammelt skjelett av en kvinne fra Oslos middelalderby minnet oss om en annen farlig sykdom de fleste hadde glemt: Tilbakefallsfeberen, som smitter via kroppslus.

Spawning migration in cod – a question of trade-offs
7. aug. 2018
The extensive spawning migration of Northeast Arctic cod was suggested to be counterbalanced by increased early-offspring survival, however we find in a study published in July in Marine Ecology Progress Series , that early offspring growth should be considered as another factor explaining this long-distance migration.
