Parasites & Diseases  - 
 
 
When researchers investigated how the stress hormone, corticosterone, affects how birds cope with West Nile virus, they found that birds with higher levels of stress hormone were twice as likely to be bitten by mosquitoes that transmit the virus. Their studies have implications for the transmission of other viruses such Eastern Equine Encephalitis, and perhaps even Zika, both known to be carried by the kind of mosquitoes used in this study.

Old villages and farmsteads that disappear from European landscapes are hot-spots of bird #biodiversity http://ow.ly/Kh7s303jlYY
Summary. To counteract the decline of farmland biodiversity in Europe, it is crucial to recognize habitats that are hot spots. Old rural settlements (e.g. villages) may be such important habitats, although these presumably biodiversity-rich habitats have received little attention.

"About 75 percent of deaths in the East Fork pack in the past year were caused by human trapping and hunting, park biologist Bridget Borg told Alaska Public Media."
For decades, the wolves of the storied East Fork pack were beloved by researchers and tourists alike at Alaska's Denali National Park. They frequented the park's entrance and roads and became the stars of family vacation photos.

Evolution & Taxonomy  - 
 
 
What really came first -- the chicken or the egg? Birds' reproductive biology is dramatically different from that of any other living vertebrates, and scientists have long wondered how and when the unique features of bird reproduction originated. A new review examines answers from three sources--modern birds, fossils of primitive birds, and fossils of the dinosaurs from which birds are descended -- to shed new light on the subject.

Introduction
I study how habitat fragmentation impacts extinction.

"In the end we will conserve only what we love. We will love only what we understand. We will understand only what we are taught."
 - Baba Dioum

"I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment... and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance than I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn."
 - Henry David Thoreau

"Living wild species are like a library of books still unread. Our heedless destruction of them is akin to burning the library without ever having read its books."
 - John Dingell
