    BeskrivelseIn an era of always-on information, it is surprising how little we know about key biological aspects of animal species worldwide. A paper published this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) reveals that fundamental pieces of information, such as fertility and survival rates - the building blocks of how populations persist - are missing from global data for more than 98 percent of known species of mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians.
