A new study surrounding the topic, proposed by University of Minnesota Ph.D. student Lauren White in the College of Biological Sciences; and her advisors, James Forester, College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences, and Meggan Craft, College of Veterinary Medicine, was recently published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS). Its findings run counter to previous disease transmission models’ predictions—suggesting that habitat fragmentation may promote disease outbreaks in some scenarios.

Striking differences in brain morphology between wild and domestic rabbits [Phys]

The most characteristic feature of domestic animals is tame behaviour. An international team of scientists has now used high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to study how domestication affects brain morphology in domestic rabbits. The results show that domestication has a profound effect on brain morphology in particular regions of the brain involved in fear processing, the amygdala and medial prefrontal cortex. The study is published in PNAS.
