Przewalski's horses are an iconic species that zoos have helped save from extinction. At Species360, we believe data and data sharing are critical to conservation science. Jim Guenter, Species360 CEO. As a global non-profit organization, Species360 and our nearly 1,300…
New research used ZIMS data to analyze factors that can influence reproductive success in flamingos.
University of Chicago researchers will use data aggregated across global populations of animals to study immunology in species of mammals. In particular, they will look at baseline neutrophil concentrations published in the Species360 Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS) to summarize order-level parameter values that approximate the magnitude of constitutive immunity across diverse mammalian taxa.
From Costa Rica to Papua New Guinea, Species360 members have been featured in more than 100 news articles this summer - in national, regional, and local news and via their own newsletters and blogs. The topic: the role of each institution in recording and sharing data used to study aging in species. These articles are the result of a press release reporting Species360 members' part in research conducted by the Conservation Science Alliance and published in Science magazine.
Data from the Species360 Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS) has enabled researchers from the Species360 Conservation Science Alliance and the University of Southern Denmark to investigate evolutionary aging theories in tortoises and turtles.
The Species360 Conservation Science Alliance (CSA) presents a unique opportunity for conservationists around the world to collaborate using one-of-a-kind data and professional expertise shared by Species360 members and partners to serve animal care and species conservation.
A new paper, co-authored by Species360 Director of Science, and of the Species360 Conservation Science Alliance Prof. Dalia Conde, published in the journal BioScience lays out a pathway to increasing collaboration between zoos and museums that would enhance our understanding of the animal kingdom.
Data from the Species360 Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS) has been crucial in enabling researchers to investigate the correlation between brain size and life expectancy in parrots.
Mote’s Center for Coral Reef Research & Restoration, Florida (United States), has become a new member of Species360.
The New Species 2021 report, released by the conservation organisation Shoal, shows just how diverse and remarkable the world’s often undervalued freshwater species are, and suggests there is plenty more life still to be discovered in the world’s lakes, rivers and wetlands."
