Hawaiian Birds Rapidly Colonize Young Restoration Forest

Mon, 17 Jul 2017 08:40:00 EST

Forest birds on the island of Hawaii are responding positively to being restored in one of the largest, ongoing reforestation projects at Hakalau Forest National Wildlife Refuge, according to a new study released July 10 in the journal Restoration Ecology.Serving as pollinators and seed dispersers, birds have an important role in ecosystem function and their presence in restoration areas can be a measure of success for conservation efforts.(image)



Prelude to global extinction: Stanford biologists say disappearance of species tells only part of the story of human impact on Earth's animals

Changes in conservation planning can benefit vulnerable mammals

Thu, 06 Jul 2017 12:37:00 EST

Right now, a prairie dog in Colorado is busy increasing soil carbon retention, increasing water infiltration, and clipping vegetation that will help maintain local grasslands and provide nutritious forage for large herbivores like cattle and bison. And, somewhere in Mexico, a pollinating bat is ensuring agave plants make good tequila.(image)



'Weedy' fish species to take over our future oceans

Thu, 06 Jul 2017 12:34:00 EST

University of Adelaide researchers have for the first time demonstrated that the ocean acidification expected in the future will reduce fish diversity significantly, with small ‘weedy’ species dominating marine environments. (image)



Hot new imagery of wintering bats suggests a group behavior for battling white-nose syndrome

Thu, 06 Jul 2017 08:00:00 EST

Hot new imagery from temperature-sensing cameras suggests that bats who warm up from hibernation together throughout the winter may be better at surviving white nose syndrome, a disease caused by a cold-loving fungus ravaging insect-eating bat populations in the United States and Canada. The study by researchers with Massey University in New Zealand and the USGS was published in Methods in Ecology and Evolution.  (image)
