tourists risk animal bites by misreading wild monkey facial expressions as 'kiss

Wildlife tourists frequently fail to identify aggressive and distressed emotional states in wild monkeys - mistaking animals' warnings of aggression for 'smiles' and 'kisses' - and this can lead to welfare problems for primates and risk of injury for people, according to new research published today.
A new study by a team of behavioural ecologists and psychologists examined whether educational tools intended to help tourists recognise different facial expressions in monkeys - such as 2D images and information signs like those found in zoos or animal parks - were effective in reducing harm to humans and distress to primates in destinations where wild macaques freely interact with humans.The researchers found that tourists made significant mistakes in interpreting macaques' emotions - such

how hard is it to count up every single person in america?

On the giant list of problems facing the country compiled daily by stressed-out Americans, the fate of the 2020 census is perhaps not near the top. But no matter what you care about, if it has to deal with politics, you should care a bit about the census — especially since Census Bureau director John Thompson just resigned last week. Also, the agency's staff are expected to debut an entire new digital system for collecting the data without spending any more money than they did for the 2010 census. In short, things aren't looking too good at this exact moment for those hoping that the census paints an accurate portrait of America, as the framers of the Constitution demanded.A bad census (i.e., one that started with massive snafus that called into question the data, or that obviously under-

lemurs are weird because madagascar's fruit is weird

A collared brown lemur (Eulemur collaris), which is one of only two genera of lemurs that primarily eats fruit. To combat the lack of protein in Madagascar's fruit, these lemurs are active throughout the day and night to maximize the amount of time that they can eat to get enough nutrients. Credit: Marco CamperaLemurs are primates like us, but they're the weird cousins. They're found only on Madagascar off the coast of Africa, and they fight by secreting smelly paste from their shoulders and using their tails to waft the scent at their rivals. Some lemur species become inactive or hibernate when food is scarce, and other species eat all day and all night to get enough nutrients. Another thing that sets them apart is their diet—most primates eat a fruit-heavy diet, but lemurs primarily eat

how drones are being used in zanzibar's fight against malaria

Makame Makame from the Zanzibar Malaria Elimination Programme holds one of the drones used to map malaria vectors. Credit: Andy HardyOn a typically hot and humid July day in Stonetown, the capital of Zanzibar, a gaggle of children, teenagers and the odd parents watched our small drone take flight. My colleagues Makame Makame, Khamis Haji and I had finally found the perfect launch spot.
With a high-pitched humming, the drone took to the air. It sounded like a big mosquito – appropriate, since we were testing the use of drones for mapping aquatic malaria habitats. These shallow sunlit water bodies teem with mosquito larvae. In a matter of days, the larvae will emerge as adult mosquitoes in search of a blood meal. If one of those mosquitoes bites a human infected with malaria, it will becom
