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.

Chytrid fungus is a nasty pathogen that's slowly decimating our planet's frogs. It turns out that chytrid has a cousin that targets newts and salamanders too and it's spreading from Asia to Europe and the UK, likely thanks to the pet trade. The US is home to incredible salamander diversity, and many of our ~190 species are already struggling. That's why some conservation groups have petitioned the US government to block the import of pet salamanders.

Animals almost universally avoid threatening stimuli. But avoidance isn't necessarily proof that the animal feels fear, so a group of researchers creeped out a bunch of fruit flies to find out whether they, in their own way, can be afraid.

For each gram they weigh, the blackpolls flap their wings over some 233 kilometres (144 miles) of ocean.

An average human (who weighs 80.7 kilograms, or 80,700 grams, or 177 pounds) would have to trek more than 18 million kilometres (more than 11 million miles) without stopping to maintain an equivalent migration! That's one eighth the distance from the Earth to the Sun.
