Keep an eye on orange prices! The U.S. Department of Agriculture said, after years of decline, there would be an additional 20 percent drop in Florida’s orange production this season.
The USDA recently stunned growers when it projected the smallest orange harvest for Florida in more than 50 years. The culprit: A tiny insect that's killing off the state's trees — and industry.

The Golden state is bringing back the dam beavers.....sweet!

It seems that nature's most feared predators often mistake the vibrations in music for struggling fish, rockin out with their…uh…dorsal fin out.

Late last week Nature Abounds got some pretty good news. We had worked on a grant proposal for macroinvertebrate (insects in a stream) identification under Carnegie Mellon University, and the proposal has been funded. Work will begin in 2016.
