CityU researcher: desexing cats before 4 months can reduce the number of unwanted kittens
Big-data research led by a CityU researcher has found that although more than 80% of cats in Australia were desexed, only a fraction have had surgery before reaching puberty, thus creating a “pregnancy gap”. It is recommended that the age of desexing is before four months.
Study suggests safety is why crowds synch footsteps
Research co-led by academics at CityU has discovered that the phenomenon of human self-organisation known as synchronisation forms spontaneously when the safety distance between pedestrians seems insufficient.
