What happened to all the large animals? (pdf)
The limited diversity of large mammals in the fauna of Europe, America and Asia is due to humans. A detailed analysis of the published data on late Quaternary large mammal distribution and extinction clearly shows that their disappearance is closely linked to the spread of modern man across the world.

Biology at work - Danish focus on synthetic biology (pdf)
At the border between old and new disciplines, a new field of research – synthetic biology – is under development. Here, scientists are attempting to build biological nanomachines that can, for example, harvest the sun's rays, and sensors that can detect minute quantities of chemical substances within cells.
