World’s largest carnivores being pushed off the map (BBC News)

The Ethiopian wolf, red wolf, tiger, lion, African wild dog and cheetah have all been squeezed out as land is lost to human settlements and farming. Reintroduction of carnivores into areas where they once roamed is vital in conservation, say scientists. This relies on human willingness to share the landscape with the likes of the wolf. The research, published in Royal Society Open Science, was carried out by Christopher Wolf and William Ripple of Oregon State University. (see also MSN)

To save endangered whales, look at the poop (Popular Science)

And because collecting poop doesn’t bother the whale, scientists can harvest dung from the same animal repeatedly. “You can collect samples over and over again…without invasively harming them,” says Leigh Torres, a marine ecologist at Oregon State University in Corvallis. “It’s a biological goldmine.”

OSU names new species of fish after Irish singer Enya (KATU)

What does Irish singer Enya’s 1988 hit “Orinoco Flow” have to do with fish? There is the obvious lure of the catchy chorus she repeats (“sail away, sail away”) but now there’s a new line connecting the two. (see also IFL Science, Irish SunRTE)

Seafloor survey done for potential offshore renewable energy products (Coos Bay World)

A recently- published research paper based off of a study conducted by Oregon State University researchers on sediment and animals on the ocean floor in the Pacific Northwest could aid future renewable energy projects off the coast.

Amid nationwide bee decline, Portland Urban Beekeeping blooms (Oregonian)

Bee researcher Ramesh Sagili said Oregon’s honeybee loss rate is normally much lower than the national average. If not for a new mite infecting hives and longer periods of cold weather this winter, Oregon’s hives would have fared much better, Sagili said.

Experts with Oregon Sea Grant and the Oregon State University Extension Service will lead the tours. Unlike Newport, Clatsop County does not have as many fishermen selling directly from their boats, so the tours will focus on other types of sellers.
