Science Bulletins: Logger Imperil Monarch Butterflies
Most monarch butterflies that live east of the Rockies—up to one billion individuals—migrate to just 12 cool, high-altitude mountain forests in central Mexico every winter. The oyamel fir trees there act as a blanket and an umbrella, keeping the butterflies at a comfortable temperature and humidity until they leave in March to return north. The butterflies overwinter at these sites year after year, a migratory phenomenon unique among insects. Recent images from the high-resolution IKONOS sa
Science Bulletins: Light Pollution—Beyond the Glare
Scientists have long understood that artificial light can disrupt wildlife that takes cues from natural light. It's becoming increasingly clear that light reflected off shiny artificial surfaces such as cars, buildings, and roads can also disrupt animal behavior—sometimes fatally. A new review of research on light pollution by a team of Hungarian and American scientists describes a new concern with polarized light pollution. When light bounces off reflective surfaces, it can become polarized,

Science Bulletins: The Roots of a Malaria Menace
Malaria kills more than a million people every year. Recently, an international team of biologists used genetic techniques to trace how the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum first emerged to infect humans. In their study of chimpanzees in West Africa, the researchers discovered that P. falciparum evolved from Plasmodium reichenowi, a species of chimpanzee malaria. Malaria thus began much like many other modern pandemics such as HIV, SARS, and swine flu—it jumped from animals to humans.
