Big Data Shows How What We Buy Affects Endangered Species

130082_web.jpg

The things we consume, from iPhones to cars to IKEA furniture, have costs that go well beyond their purchase price. What if the soybeans used to make that tofu you ate last night were grown in fields that were hewn out of tropical rainforests? Or if that tee-shirt you bought came from an industrial area that had been carved out of high-value habitat in Malaysia?

Climate Change Is Already Causing Widespread Local Extinction in Plant and Animal Species

vcsPRAsset_2239845_97477_df3bf002-bf7d-4201-8f6e-48cafe8b1b0d_0.jpg

Extinctions related to climate change have already happened in hundreds of plant and animal species around the world. New research, publishing on December 8th in the open-access journal PLOS Biology, shows that local extinctions have already occurred in 47% of the 976 plant and animal species studied.

Study Explains Evolution Phenomenon That Puzzled Darwin

Abrams-Taurusscarabbeetles.jpeg

Why do some animals have extravagant, showy ornaments -- think deer antlers, peacock feathers and horns on beetles -- that can be a liability to survival? Northwestern University researchers have a possible explanation for this puzzling phenomenon of evolution.

Songbirds Sound the Alarm About Traffic Noise

parusmajor.jpg

A new study led by Pacific University biologist Chris Templeton demonstrates that the alarm calls of songbirds are dramatically impaired by road traffic noise. Research by Templeton and colleagues has shown that signals critical for the survival of animals are compromised when birds live near even moderately busy roads.
