UNH Research Uses Satellite Observation to Track Avian Flu
An international, interdisciplinary team of researchers led by professor Xiangming Xiao of the University of New Hampshire is taking a novel scientific approach in an attempt to understand the ecology of the avian influenza, develop better methods of predicting its spread, and provide an accurate early warning system. View News Article (2006-11-21)

On the track of tiny larvae, a new model elucidates connections in marine ecology
A computer model newly developed by researchers combines ocean current simulations and genetic forecasting to help scientists predict animal dispersion patterns and details of the ecology of coral reefs across the Caribbean Sea. View News Article (2006-08-22)

'Charismatic' organisms still dominating genomics research
Decades after the genomics revolution, half of known eukaryote lineages still remain unstudied at the genomic level--with the field displaying a research bias against 'less popular', but potentially genetically rich, single-cell organisms. View News Article (2014-04-30)

Monitoring farmland biodiversity across Europe: It could cost less than you think
How can we monitor Europe-wide farmland biodiversity so that it makes sense to farmers, is ecologically credible and scientifically sound and can be implemented for a reasonable price? Two new studies answer these questions. View News Article (2015-11-09)

UK butterfly populations threatened by extreme drought and landscape fragmentation
A new study has found that the sensitivity and recovery of UK butterfly populations to extreme drought is affected by the overall area and degree of fragmentation of key habitat types in the landscape.  View News Article (2012-11-02)

Timid jumping spider uses ant as bodyguard

The unique ecology of human predators
Are humans unsustainable 'super predators'? Want to see what science now calls the world's "super predator"? Look in the mirror. View News Article (2015-08-21)

Climate relicts may help researchers understand climate change
While hiking through the Ozarks' characteristic oak and hickory forests as a teenager, ecologist Scott Woolbright discovered something decidedly uncharacteristic for the region: prickly pear cacti growing on an exposed, rocky ledge.  View News Article (2014-08-13)
