    It's ultra-thin, electrically conducting at the edge and highly insulating within – and all that at room temperature: Physicists from the University of Würzburg have developed a promising new material.

    Drei Mauerbienenarten haben die Wissenschaftler untersucht (v.l.): Die Gehörnte Mauerbiene (Osmia cornuta), die Rote Mauerbiene (Osmia bicornis) und die Schöterich Mauerbiene (Osmia brevicornis). (Fotos: Mariela Schenk)

    Global warming changes the flowering times of plants and the moment when bees hatch – sometimes with severe consequences for the bees. This was shown by a new study conducted by ecologists from the University of Würzburg.

    Ammenbienen sind im Unterschied zu Sammelbienen rund um die Uhr aktiv. Die innere Uhr läuft auf der Ebene der Proteine trotzdem weiter. (Foto: Gunnar Bartsch)

    Circadian clocks control the day-night cycle of many living beings. But what do the pacemakers do in animals whose activities do not follow this pattern? Scientists from the University of Würzburg have now looked into this question.

    Multiple biological clocks control the daily rhythms of physiology and behavior in animals and humans. Whether and how these clocks are connected with each other is still a largely open question. A new study now shows that a central clock governs the circadian rhythms in certain cases.
