Morogoro virus may affect survival of its natural host
This is counterintuitive to expectations: a negative effect of the virus on its host potentially diminishes its own spreading capability.
GCE success in latest round of Marie Sklodowska-Curie applications
Three Marie Sklodowska-Curie fellowships for incoming young experienced researchers were granted, while one GCE researcher heads for the United States.
The plague a Middle Ages' issue? Not al all.
The disease still makes thousands of victims every year, Herwig Leirs tells in Gazet van Antwerpen.
Global Change Ecology hosts two workshops for Studio Stem
The Global Change Ecology Centre participated again in Studio Stem, an initiative that gives third graders from secondary schools the opportunity to join workshops organised by the Faculty of Sciences.
In the newspapers 'De Morgen' en 'Het Laatste Nieuws', as well as on Radio 1, Herwig Leirs explained why we observe more rats recently.
"Trees' spring awakening is becoming less sensitive to altitude differences"
