Humans are influencing the behavior of wild animals, causing them to flee daylight and seek the cover of darkness for protection, according to a new study from UC Berkeley.

The study, published Thursday in the journal Science, offers powerful evidence that fearful animals are shifting their activities from daytime to night, when humans are quietly home in bed.

ďAs the planet grows increasing crowded, this represents a way for animals to adapt, living along humans, Ē said study lead author Kaitlyn Gaynor, a Berkeley PhD candidate with UCís department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management. But there may be profound ecological consequences, she warned.

Itís been well established that humans are causing shifts in where animals live. But this large-scale analysis of 76 studies of 62 species of large mammals from six continents represents the first effort to quantify the global effects of human disturbance on the day-to-day routines of wildlife Ė when they feed, mate and care for their young.

Incredibly sad. I'm continually dismayed at how much havoc the human race causes on a daily basis.
