2016/2017: From math to air pollution and archaeology
Three new research groups are settling in at CAS, and we are excited to present highly diverse and internationally composed research groups.
- Bears have solved major problems of modern medicine
Bears increase their weight by fifty per cent during the autumn, and then they lie down to hibernate for six months. According to Professor Jon Swenson, who has been studying bears for over thirty years, a human who did this would never get up again. During our interview, Swenson explains why the Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales (CNES), the French space agency, is interested in his data on bears.
- Humans, not climate, cause extinction
The CAS project on harvested large mammals is a significant example of how basic research can fruitfully, if unpredictably, enhance new knowledge across fields.
