Forest corridors prove critical to biodiversity and pollination success in the tropics (Phys. Org)

Researchers have found that forest corridors enable specialized hummingbirds that prefer such landscapes to travel longer distances from one patch of trees to another, increasing pollen exchange between forest patches. Such patches not only harbor more hummingbirds but also display greater rates of pollination than plants in areas that are isolated from each other. These are among the results published today in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B, a technical journal, by scientists from the College of Forestry at Oregon State University and the Georg-August University Gottingen in Germany. (see also Science Codex, Latin American Post)

Natural oil seeps in the Gulf of Mexico and the microbes who love them (Christian Science Monitor)

Benton County unemployment up slightly (Gazette-Times)

And Benton County’s economy is healthier than before the recession.

The findings were made by researchers from the Oregon Health & Science University and Oregon State University, and published in the journal Substance Abuse.
