Because the herring play a very important part in both the local economy and the subsistence lifestyle practiced by the area's Alaska Native people, community members and scientists have sought to identify the cause of the virus. One hypothesis suggests that oil from the 1989 Exxon Valdez tanker spill, though not the direct cause of the virus, is a stresso
Jeremy Siegel: Interest Rates Look Stable, but Beware the China Bubble
The U.S. economy may be getting stronger, but that doesn't mean interest rates will go up when the Federal Reserve meets next week on January 31. According to Wharton finance professor Jeremy Siegel, interest rates should hold firm at their current level for quite a while, and "the big question for the market is whether there will be any drops at all this year." He believes there is "a balance in the economy between strength and moderate inflation," and the Fed is unlikely to move interest rates

Quantifying honey bee mating range and isolation in semi-isolated valleys by DNA microsatellite pate
Honey bee males and queens mate in mid air and can fly many kilometres on their nuptial flights. The conservation of native honey bees, such as the European black bee (Apis mellifera mellifera), therefore, requires large isolated areas to prevent hybridisation with other subspecies, such as A. m. ligustica or A. m. carnica, which may have been introduced by beekeepers. This study used DNA microsatellite markers to determine the mating range of A. m. mellifera in two adjacent semi-isolated valley
