Ecosystems have their own sort of immune systems, and healthier, more robust ecosystems are better equipped to minimize the rate of infection. And that’s good news not just for animals, but also for humans. After all, we all suffer from many of the same diseases.

The growth in tourism will be unsustainable against a background of climate change, and yet there is little chance that folks will stop going on vacation. But what if there was a way to go on vacation while helping fix the problem? According to new research, tacking on an $11 tax to each trip could do just that.

If long-distance migrants like humpback whales are going to be conserved, then it stands to reason that conservationists need a complete accounting of their annual movements – including when they’re a bit further from shore.

Want some golden bamboo? A live plant can be yours for just $17. Be careful though. If it spreads beyond your yard, it could build up dense stands that crowd out important native species. Moving live plants, even invasive ones like golden bamboo, around the world is easy. Too easy.

If eggs are too close to the water, they could drown, especially in high tides. Developing turtle embryos need to exchange gases with the outside world through their shells. That is, they need to breathe. If the eggs are immersed in water for too long, they might not be able to breathe as efficiently, and that could reduce their chances of survival. Field observations suggest that inundation can reduce egg viability, but nobody knows at what point inundation overwhelms the developing turtle. Is just a few minutes enough? Can the embryos survive a few hours underwater? What about a few hours every day?

When researchers have taken a close look at diseases at the wildlife-livestock interface, the focus has often been on the role of wildlife as a source for disease, perhaps owing to our own human bias favoring livestock while neglecting the inherent value in wildlife biodiversity... But the truth is that diseases pass between livestock and wildlife in both directions, both thanks to vectors like insects that move pathogens back and forth, but also because in many ecosystems, wildlife and livestock share resources like water and pastures.

The typical rhetoric around invasive species tends to suggest a certain set of values: that native species are inherently more valuable than introduced ones. “I think this is a problem,” says Pienkowski. Instead, he prefers to think of habitats in which non-native species have gained a foothold as novel ecosystems.
