Researchers identify strong biases in our understanding of how megaherbivores affect earth system functioning

The earth's megaherbivores, large plant-eating mammals weighing at least a ton as an adult, are severely endangered. What happens if they disappear? We do not fully know, because our knowledge of how

Deficient sanitation increases the risk of animal spread diseases in slums

Over a billion people around the world live in slums in large cities. In a study in Brazilian slums, researchers from SLU investigated the factors that affect the spread of leptospirosis from rats to
