  • Save the charismatic megafauna! No, really. A thoughtful review shows that conservation research focuses on big mammals at the exclusion of most other taxa. And this study didn’t even consider invertebrates. As research leads to knowledge which leads to action, this bias could have large and long-lasting implications. (And see also.)
  • If you thought we were the only species on earth to have scientists squirreled away in labs developing antibiotics to keep us safe from infection, you’d be wrong. Wasps do it, too. Minus the labs. And the lab coats. Although, wasp in a lab coat! How cute!

    30. I’ve been surfing on-line more than three hours today, yet I by no means discovered any fascinating article like yours. It is beautiful value sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content as you did, the web will probably be much more helpful than ever before.
