    Newswise imageUnlike other mosquito-borne outbreaks, Zika doubles as a sexually transmitted infection, with men retaining the virus 10 times longer in their semen than women do in their vaginal fluids. According to research initiated at the Santa Fe Institute, populations least likely to get tested for Zika could create a silent, sustained outbreak.

  • 09/06/17--15:05: How Monkey Fights Grow
  • Newswise imageNew research finds evidence for a complicated structure behind primate conflict. It is not individuals who control the length of fights, but the relationships between pairs of individuals.

    Newswise imageNo individual fish or bee or neuron has enough information by itself to solve a complex problem, but together they can accomplish amazing things. In research recently published in Science Advances, Eleanor Brush (University of Maryland), David Krakauer, and Jessica Flack address how this is possible through a study of the emergence of social structure in primate social groups.

    Newswise imageModels for extinction risk are necessarily simple. Most reduce complex ecological systems to a linear relationship between resource density and population growth--something that can be broadly applied to infer how much resource loss a species can survive.

    Newswise imageIn a new study published in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface, researchers Albert Kao (Harvard University), Andrew Berdahl (Santa Fe Institute), and their colleagues examined just how accurate our collective intelligence is and how individual bias and information sharing skew aggregate estimates. Using their findings, they developed a mathematical correction that takes into account bias and social information to generate an improved crowd estimate.
