    Ims, Rolf Anker; Kamenova, Stefaniya Kamenova; Devineau, Olivier; Soininen, Eeva Marjatta; neby, Magne (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-04-17)
    Herbivorous rodents in boreal, alpine and arctic ecosystems are renowned for their multi-annual population cycles. Researchers have hypothesised that these cycles may result from herbivore–plant interactions in various ways. For instance, if the biomass of preferred food plants is reduced after a peak phase of a cycle, rodent diets can be expected to become dominated by less preferred food plants, ...
  • Literacy overrides effects of animacy: A picture-naming study with pre-literate German children and adult speakers of German and Arabic 

    Dolscheid, Sarah; Schlenter, Judith; Penke, Martina (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-04-17)
    Animacy plays a key role for human cognition, which is also reflected in the way humans process language.

In the present study, we tested the ...

In the two consecutive cross-sectional analyses performed in this study, 163 second-year ...
  • Consequentialism and Its Demands: The Role of Institutions 

    Tanyi, Attila Geza; Miklos, Andras (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-04-17)
    Consequentialism is often criticized as being overly demanding, and this overdemandingness is seen as sufficient to reject it as a moral theory. This paper takes the plausibility and coherence of this objection—the Demandingness Objection—as a given. Our question, therefore, is how to respond to the Objection. We put forward a response relying on the framework of institutional consequentialism we ...
