"Laziness" is not weakness, but the ancient strategy of our survival!


Works still.

Activity and commitment - not the only way to survive, writes Inquirer Technology.

Researchers from the University of Kansas (KU) studied fossils and remained two-fold and Gastropoda of mollusks in the Atlantic Ocean. They have found out that individuals with high metabolism had higher probability of extinction, unlike views with lower speed of metabolism.

the Research group headed by Institute of biological diversity of KU and the scientific researcher of natural historical heritage Luke Strots has analysed the speed of metabolism of 299 types, and has assumed that species of mollusks with higher level of metabolism died out quicker. Metabolic speed is amount of energy which the animal has to spend in the everyday life. High metabolic rate means higher power consumption. It also means need to consume more resources for replenishment of the lost energy used for continuation of life. On the other hand, lower level of metabolism will demand smaller power consumption. It means lower need for resources.

However researchers have noted that the level of metabolism is only one of factors which can lead to disappearance of types. They have also mentioned that the community is important, how numerous and densely populated.

For example if the view with the high speed of metabolism is in densely populated community, chances of disappearance increase.

the Co-author of a research Bruce Lieberman, professor of ecology and evolutionary biology, has told: "Perhaps, in the long term the best evolutionary strategy for animals is to be lazy and sluggish. Than metabolism speed, that high probability of survival is lower". "Instead of "survival the most adapted", perhaps, the best metaphor of a life story is "survival lazy" or, at least, "survival sluggish", - Lieberman has added. Researchers also considered these results as one more potential predictor of probability of disappearance. Further, indicators of metabolism of types can be considered to define probability of their disappearance.
