Oysters raised in acidified seawater may or may not taste different, but there will certainly be fewer of them.
Climate change has already begun to affect many US coastal economies because of their reliance on shellfish. How can local communities react?

Just because a landscape looks intact doesn't mean it is.
Australia has been losing one to two mammal species per decade since European settlement. Why? And why didn't we notice until now?

Forest ecology turns out to be pretty neat.
Drought stresses California's forests but not how you might think. Thanks to historical records, researchers can understand modern shifts in forest ecology.

Cry “Havoc” and Let Slip the Bees of War!
I love the art that goes with my piece in the February issue of +Scientific American on a fascinating new discovery that bees have inter-species warfare!
Australian stingless bees stage strikingly rare interspecies battles

My latest exploration of the human body at +BBC Future.
Human beings are unusual in that our mouths are surrounded by hypersensitive, easily-hurt pink tissue – why? Jason G Goldman investigates.

You have turned my certainty on its head! I had no idea you liked military history. I feel so much closer with you!

Dingoes are to Australia as Grey wolves are to Yellowstone. Maybe. Let's find out.
A group of Australian researchers propose reintroducing dingoes to landscapes from which they've been extirpated. Could it end Australia's wildlife decline?

It's not as simple as Democrat and Republican.
Some have argued that the climate change divide can be reduced to one of political affiliation. But new research suggests that it's about identity.

+Donald Farmer Wrong again! Murray Salby is a PAID climate change denier. A tell-tale signature of human fossil fuel emissions is the large fraction of CO2 being driven into the oceans. According to Henry's Law, we would expect the oceans to absorb more CO2 as the air above it becomes increasingly saturated with CO2. In other words the CO2 must be coming from a source external to the fast carbon cycle. This is supported by measurements showing that CO2 is accumulating in the ocean, and is reflected in the declining oceanic pH, showing the ocean is actually gaining CO2 over the long-term, not losing it, as Salby seems to believe. 
Are there other drivers YES, methane emissions released do to Global Warming will make matters worse!
If you bother to look at  the Milankovitch cycles we should be in a COOLING period!

Can wildlife documentaries be tools for conservation? A young filmmaker named Dan Duran thinks so. He won last year's Nat Geo Wild "Wild to Inspire" film festival by creating a short film about a wolf sanctuary in California. I caught up with him after he collected his prize - an expedition to Tanzania to learn from one of the greats, Emmy award-winning wildlife filmmaker Bob Poole.
Dan Duran won Nat Geo WILD's 'Wild to Inspire' film festival last year with his short film, 'Wolf Mountain'. We chat to him about his winning project, the ins and out of wildlife filmmaking and his recent Tanzanian expedition with award-winning cinematographer Bob Poole.

I met Wian van Zyl while in South Africa earlier this year. I'm really happy I got a chance to interview him about his role in the war on rhino poaching.
South African poachers continue to use sophisticated methods to dehorn—and kill—rhinos while rangers are severely hampered in combatting the practice

This article by The Guardian on Virunga national park's first female rangers is also a good read [ www.theguardian.com/global-development/2015/jan/15/gorillas-guns-volcanoes-congo-virunga-park ]

Measuring lizard penises. For science!
Penises: they're not just for fun, they're also for science. And researchers studying the genitalia of male Anolis lizards have discovered something pretty interesting: their penises evolve at (relative) hyperspeed!

The Wild Life is back! On episode 10, I chat with +Aaron Pomerantz about insects from the Peruvian rainforest to the streets of LA. And we entertain each other with tales of eating unexpected things in the field.
New podcast: Having just returned from an expedition in the Amazon, entomologist and science reporter Aaron Pomerantz joins Jason Goldman to talk insects!
