Science Bulletins:Biodiversity Boosts Human Health
Hantavirus is an infectious pathogen carried by rodents and occasionally passed to humans, where it can be deadly. A new study led by researchers from the University of New Mexico demonstrates that when rodent biodiversity decreases in Panamanian forests, the risk of hantavirus transmission in these ecosystems increase. Since deforestation can reduce species diversity, the findings have implications for people who live at the fringes of fragmented woodlands.

Slinkies as Solenoids
In this activity, students use an old fashion children's toy, a metal slinky, to mimic and understand the magnetic field generated in an MRI machine. The metal slinky mimics the magnetic field of a solenoid, which forms the basis for the magnet of the MRI machine. Students run current through the slinky and use computer and calculator software to explore the magnetic field created by the slinky.
