Why are some groups of animals so diverse?

...illion years, most of Australia changed from humid and tropical to bone-dry desert. Living in the desert is stressful for animals that are adapted for wetter habitats, says Rabosky. But somewhere in the distant past, a few skinks developed the ability to survive in their increasingly arid world. It is the d...

Human Induced Global Warming Drying Up Arctic Ponds

...seen, in our lifetime, in front of our eyes, some of these ponds dry up. It is quite striking," National Geographic quoted him as saying. "In wetter years the now-dry ponds may again fill with water. But they won't be the same again, since many of the organisms that once lived in the ponds have pro...

Wet Distiller's Grains Could Play a Role in Cattle Diets

...er loads to feed the cattle," Brown said. "That would certainly factor into decisions at a commercial facility." The distiller's grains rations were wetter and more dense than those without distiller's grains, he said. The data suggests a feedlot would need to deliver 10 percent more feed if feed trucks a...

Pacific Northwest forests could store more carbon, help address greenhouse issues

...arge amounts of carbon even at very old ages," said Beverly Law, a professor of forest science at OSU. "The forests west of the Cascade Range are also wetter and less likely to be lost to fire. We suspected these forests might provide more opportunity for carbon storage than has been recognized, and these d...

Ecologists question effects of climate change on infectious diseases

Scientists have used the fact that infectious diseases are most prevalent in the tropics to argue that warmer, wetter conditions that might occur under climate change would lead to an increase in infectious disease transmission. However, Lafferty points out that clim...

Researchers examine role of climate change in disease spread

...or midges (Bluetongue), creatures whose activity and population increase in warm, moist environments, one would suspect that a transition to a warmer, wetter climate could have opened the door for their spread to a new region.
