Senckenberg scientists have discovered that the Saiga Antelope, which is currently threatened with extinction, used to be much more flexible in its habitat and food choices in the past than previously assumed. Based on carbon and nitrogen isotopes in the collagen from the antelopes' bones, the scientists compared the diets of fossil versus modern-day Saiga. In their study, recently published in the scientific journal "Quaternary Science Reviews," they reached the conclusion that today's populations are not obligatorily bound to their current habitat. This insight offers new hope for this endangered species.

The Seat Ateca launched last year to critical acclaim Seat's new large SUV will be based on the Skoda Kodiaq; will sit alongside Ateca and the upcoming Arona in the brand's SUV line-up Seat has confirmed it will add a large SUV to its range in 2018, a new model that will further push the Spanish nameplate up-market. Based on the Skoda Kodiaq , the new Seat will have its own sheet-metal and unique interior with both five-seat and seven-seat layouts to attack a market segment above the new Ateca five-seater. Sized from around 4.7m-long, the new Seat SUV is relatively compact for a 5+2 seater – a characteristic that it shares with its platform twin, the Skoda Kodiaq. If Seat’s new SUV stays true to the satisfying dynamic characteristics of the Ateca , it could set new standards of agility for a seven-seat crossover. Based on the scalable MQB platform, the Seat SUV will also be powered by a range of VW group engines.
