The unexpected advantage of laziness is called


Scientists of the Kansas university have found out that the laziness can be the successful strategy of survival of individuals, types and the whole communities of organisms. Biologists have come to such conclusion, studying two-fold and the Gastropoda of mollusks living in the Atlantic Ocean. It is reported in the press release on Phys.org. Experts have analysed metabolism speed at 299 species of the mollusks existing in the last five million years and have found out that the amount of energy necessary for metabolism maintenance correlates with probability of extinction of species. Thus, those organisms which have high rates of a metabolism most often die out. According to scientists, it shows that slow and sluggish animals are better adapted for survival. Researchers hope that results of work will help to define types which are most vulnerable to changes of the environment because of global warming. They note that the speed of metabolism isn't the only factor influencing survival, however high rates of a metabolism considerably increase probability of disappearance.
