Bone marrow storage and delayed consumption at Middle Pleistocene Qesem Cave, Israel (420-200 ka)

IREC participates in research published this week in Science Advances. Bone marrow and fat are an important source of nutrition and, as such, have attracted the attention of human groups since...

The consumption of red swamp crayfish from historical mining areas poses food safety risks owing to the accumulation of high levels of metals

American red crab (Procambarus clarkii) has become one of the most widespread and problematic invasive alien species in the rivers of the Iberian Peninsula. On the other hand, its sport fishing for...

Restoring apex predators can reduce mesopredator abundances

Researchers from IREC (CSIC-UCLM-JCCM), TRAGSATEC, Ministry for Ecological Transition (MITECO), Junta de Extremadura, CBD-Habitat, Doñana-CSIC Biological Station and University of Oviedo have published an article in Biological Conservation on the incidence of the...

Understanding the factors that modulate the transmission dynamics of Aujeszky's disease virus in wild boar in enzootic scenarios

Laia Casades-Martí, David González-Barrio, Lara Royo-Hernández, Iratxe Díez-Delgado, Francisco Ruiz-Fons The Aujeszky disease virus (VEA) circulates enzootically in the wild boar in the Iberian peninsula, constituting a threat to the eradication...

Redox metabolic pathways limit the infection and multiplication of Anaplasma phagocytophilum while preserving its viability in tick cells

Pilar Alberdi, Alejandro Cabezas-Cruz, Pedro Espinosa Prados, Margarita Villar Rayo, Sara Artigas-Jerónimo & José de la Fuente Aerobic organisms developed preserved mechanisms that control the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) to maintain...

Protect African vultures from poison

Of the 16 species of vultures in the Old World, 81% are globally threatened or nearly threatened. Most of these species are declining, particularly in Asia and Africa, mainly due to anthropogenic activities...

Weasels respond numerically to fluctuations in vole abundance but do not cause vole cycles in NW Spain

Researchers from IREC (CSIC-UCLM-JCCM), the University of Valladolid and the University of Aberdeen (Scotland) have studied, over the past 10 years, the numerical response of the common weasel (Mustela nivalis) to the...

Selection of new chemicals to be used in conditioned aversion for non-lethal predation control

Globally, predators and scavenger species face the threat from illegal use of poison to reduce conflicts between man and wildlife. The use of Aversion Conditioned to...

Anaplasma phagocytophilum (Ap) modifies the expression of microRNAs (miRNAs) of tick cells

Genomics, proteomics and biotechnology group integrated into the Group of health and biotechnology (wise) IREC has been described as the intracellular bacteria Anaplasma phagocytophilum (Ap) modifies the expression of microRNAs (miRNAs) of...

Moving towards the estimation of density of wild boar: Camera traps and rate of motion

The wild boar (Sus scrofa) is a widely distributed throughout Europe. In addition, is characterized by its high relevance social and epidemiological, mainly for her role of reservoir in diseases shared such as tuberculosis or...
