- A New Weapon In the Bark Beetle Fight: Pheromones Right now in California's Sierra Nevada, an estimated 66 million trees have died, due to a deadly combination of drought and bark beetles, which take advantage of dry, thirsty trees. But could we prevent beetles from ever attacking trees in the first place? Researchers have been asking this question for decades, and a new tool fends off bark beetles using the very thing that makes them so deadly.
- Iowa is losing millions of trees - and it's hurting water quality, experts say Iowa's thirst for new farmland helped drive the loss of 97,000 acres of woodlands in just five years, a new federal report shows.
- How William The Worm Got Himself Into A Pickle This week, a U.K. citizen named Wes Metcalfe discovered an 'unresponsive' worm stuck in the plastic packaging of a cucumber, which he had purchased at Tesco, a British supermarket chain.
- Climate Adaptation Leadership Award for Natural Resources The Climate Adaptation Leadership Award honors excellence by outstanding organizations and individuals to reduce climate-related threats and advance the resilience of fish, wildlife, and plants in a changing climate by helping to address the goals of the National Fish, Wildlife, and Plants Climate Adaptation Strategy. Forest Service researcher, Dan Isaak, was one of the recipients for incorporating climate vulnerability into over 185 forest management projects across the Midwest, Central Appalachians, and the Northeast.
- Finding Lessons on Culture and Conservation at the End of the Road in Kauai ...All of this is part of the larger trend of conservation biology that the U.S. Forest Service is exploring. ‚ÄúConservation biology is continually evolving‚ÄĒfrom protecting nature for nature‚Äôs sake to today supporting socio-ecological systems,‚ÄĚ says Christian Giardina, research ecologist for the U.S. Forest Service‚Äôs Institute of Pacific Islands Forestry, who is funding our research.
