    Aging Cell 11:401-9. 2012

    Shinichi Nakagawa
    Department of Animal and Plant Sciences, University of Sheffield, Sheffield S10 2TN, UK

    Katie L Hector
    National Research Centre for Growth and Development, Department of Zoology, University of Otago, PO Box 56, Dunedin, New Zealand
    Biol Lett 8:790-3. 2012
    ..In summary, we can report that few species conclusively show life extension in response to resveratrol. As such, we question the practice of the substance being marketed as a life-extending health supplement for humans...

    Julia Schroeder
    Department of Animal and Plant Sciences, University of Sheffield, Sheffield, United Kingdom
    PLoS ONE 7:e39200. 2012
    ..Here, we examine three hypotheses on how noise might reduce reproductive output in passerine birds: (H1) by impairing mate choice, (H2) by reducing territory quality and (H3) by impeding chick development...
