Predicting heat death in species more reliable with new mathematical model

An international research with the involvement of the UAB has developed a new mathematical model which represents a change in paradigm in predicting the probability of heat-related mortality in small species. Published in Science, it concludes that the current standard model subestimates species' vulnerability to climate warming and extreme temperatures.


Why the 'wimpy' Y chromosome hasn't evolved out of existence

Researchers from the UAB and the University of New South Wales (Australia) have developed a new hypothesis that represents a paradigm shift in the evolutionary history of the Y chromosome in mammals. The research has been published in "Trends in Genetics".
