  3. Dear Colleagues, Most of you have probably heard about the explosive eruptions of La Soufriere Volcano on St. Vincent. They began on April 9th and have continued almost daily. The dome collapsed on April 12th and pyroclastic flows began. The volcano is decimating nearby towns, agriculture, and rivers, and has blanketed the entire country in ash. Right now the country is dealing with the humanitarian crises—evacuating people out of the danger zone and making sure that evacuees and all other residents have access to clean water and shelter. We have been in t

  16. Since 1993, 15 species of bird and mammal are thought to have gone extinct, including China's Yangtze river dolphin and the Pernambuco pygmy owl from Brazil. But these recent examples are a tiny fraction of what scientists estimate could disappear in the lifetimes of people living today. One million species spanning the full diversity of life on Earth are at risk of extinction. View the full article

  20. Avian brood parasites lay their eggs in the nests of other bird species, forcing the hosts to do the hard work of raising the unrelated young. A team of scientists wanted to simulate the task of piercing an egg—a tactic that only a minority of host birds use to help grasp and eject the foreign eggs. Their study offers insight into some of the physical challenges the discriminating host birds face. View the full article

  23. Ensuring sustainability of crop and timber production would mitigate the greatest drivers of terrestrial wildlife decline, responsible for 40% of the overall extinction risk of amphibians, birds and mammals, according to a paper published today in Nature Ecology & Evolution. These results were generated using a new metric which, for the first time, allows business, governments and civil society to assess their potential contributions to stemming global species loss, and can be used to calculate national, regional, sector-based, or institution-specific targets. The work was led by the IUCN
  24. Biologists set out to compare four main lists of bird species worldwide to find out how the lists differ -- and why. They found that although the lists agree on most birds, disagreements in Southeast Asia and the Southern Ocean could mean that some species are missed by conservation ecologists.http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/plants_animals/birds/~4/F-rcDy_HfHY View the full article

  27. The negative impact of metals in polluted lakes on aquatic organisms may also adversely affect insectivorous birds on land.
