Birds and rain forests improve pest control

Birds are highly important for pest regulation and can thus contribute to more successful harvests – particularly in the tropics. Agricultural ecologists from Göttingen University were able to show that specifically the endemic bird species and the proximity to primary forest are determinants for successful pest regulation. more...

The world’s smallest resistances

Scientists from the Universities of Göttingen and Erlangen have made an important step towards a deeper understanding of smallest resistances. Using a scanning tunnelling microscope, the researchers succeeded in resolving the spatial extent of a voltage drop with sub-nanometer resolution for the first time. more...
