Many Animals Staying Awake at Night to Avoid People
许多哺乳动物为躲避人类夜不能寐
Lions, tigers and other mammals are staying awake at night to avoid human beings, a new study finds.
一项最新研究发现,狮子、老虎等其他哺乳动物为了躲避人类,晚上都不睡觉。
Scientists have long known that human activity can lead to changes in nature. Many mammals may move around less or travel to distant places to avoid contact with people. By being awake at night, mammals can also be on guard against possible attackers and spend less time looking for food.
科学家们早就知道人类活动会导致自然界环境的变化。许多哺乳动物为了避免与人接触,可能会减少活动或躲到遥远的地方。通过在夜间保持清醒,哺乳动物可以防范可能受到的袭击,并且减少觅食的时间。
The latest research found even activities like hiking and camping can frighten animals and cause them to become more active at night.
最新研究发现,即使是徒步旅行和露营之类的活动也会使动物感到害怕,并使它们在晚上更加活跃。
Kaitlyn Gaynor of the University of California, Berkeley led the study. She said, "It suggests that animals might be playing it safe around people. We may think that we leave no trace when we're just hiking in the woods, but our mere presence can have lasting consequences."
加利福尼亚大学伯克利分校的凯特林·盖纳是这项研究带头人。她说:“这表明动物在有人的时候,会十分谨慎。当我们在森林里徒步旅行时,我们可能会认为我们没有留下任何痕迹,但是仅仅我们的出现与存在就会产生持久的影响。”
She and her team of researchers examined 76 other studies involving 62 species on six continents. Among the animals studied were lions in Tanzania, tigers in Nepal, and otters in Brazil.
凯特林和小组的研究人员调查了另外76个涉及6大洲62个物种的研究。研究对象包括坦桑尼亚的狮子、尼泊尔的老虎和巴西的水獭等。
Researchers compared how much time those animals were active at night in areas of human activity, such as hunting, hiking and farming. The team found that, on average, human presence caused an increase of about 20 percent in night time activity, even in creatures that usually sleep at night.
研究人员比较了这些动物在有人类活动地区(比如打猎、远足和耕作)的夜间活动的时间。研究小组发现,平均而言,有人类活动的地方会导致动物的夜间活动时长增加20%左右,即使是那些通常在晚上睡觉的生物也是如此。
Results were published in the journal Science.
研究结果发表在《科学》杂志上。
The findings are unusual because no one else has gathered all this information and looked at it in such detail, noted Ana Benitez Lopez of Radboud University in the Netherlands. She examined the research, but was not part of the study.
荷兰内梅亨大学的安娜·贝尼特斯·洛佩兹说,这项发现非同寻常,因为没有其他人收集到所有这些信息,并对其进行了如此细致的研究。她仔细查阅了这项研究,但她并没有参与研究过程。
Ecologist Marlee Tucker was surprised that any kind of human activity is enough for mammals to see people as a threat.
生态学家玛丽·塔克对于任何人类活动都足以让哺乳动物把人视为威胁感到惊讶。
It's a little bit scary, she said.
“这有点可怕了,”她说。
Tucker works at the Goethe University Frankfurt in Germany. She was not part of the study.
塔克在德国法兰克福歌德大学工作。她并没有参与这项研究。
Kaitlyn Gaynor said the change in hours will affect animals that have already have trouble in the darkness. But she said that the changes could also help other animals reduce conflict with people.
凯特林·盖纳说,时间的变化将会影响到那些有夜晚活动问题的动物。但是她表示这些变化也可以帮助其他动物减少与人类的冲突。
Humans can do their thing during the day; wildlife can do their thing at night, she said.
她说“人类可以在白天做自己的事情;野生动物可以在晚上做它们的事情。”
Gaynor added, that way, people would be sharing the planet with many other species.
盖纳补充说,那样的话,人们就可以和许多其他物种共享地球了。
