The recent spread of coyotes across North America did not doom deer populations

Coyotes eat deer, but not enough to limit the deer population at a large scale. A new study of deer numbers across the eastern United States has found that the arrival and establishment of coyote predators has not caused the number of deer harvested by hunters to decline.

Study reveals that coyotes are not controlling deer populations in eastern US states

Coyotes expanded their range to colonize eastern North America over the last century, where their impacts on white-tailed deer populations are highly debated. In a Journal of Wildlife Management study, researchers conducted the first long-term, large scale assessment and documented no consistent decline in deer harvest numbers after coyote arrival.

U.S. floods kill three, cut off towns as rivers rise

The Missouri River, the longest in North America, has flooded much of Nebraska between Omaha and Kansas City at the Missouri state line. It was expected to crest at 47.5 feet (14.48 m) on Tuesday, breaking the previous record, set in 2011, by more than a foot, the Nebraska Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) said in the latest bulletin on its web page. "This really is the most devastating flooding we've probably ever had in our state's history, from the standpoint of how widespread it is," Nebr...

Clinical guidelines from specialty societies often biased

Clinical practice guidelines issued by specialty societies in North America often recommend health care services linked to their specialties, in contrast with European guidelines and those from independent organizations, argues a commentary published in CMAJ (Canadian Medical Association Journal).

Waterfalls Can Spring from Rivers Spontaneously

The breathtaking waters that cascade off of steep cliffs may be self-made productions.It was long thought that waterfalls needed an outside force to form -- such as an earthquake, landslide or changes in sea level -- that molds the rocky edges the water tumbles over.But a new study suggests that a waterfall can form without any external influence. A river's own chaotic nature can mold the bedrock beneath it and spontaneously create a waterfall, researchers reported yesterday (March 13) in th...

Snap Jumps to Highest in Six Months After Winning Over BTIG Analyst

"Virtually everything that could go wrong for Snapchat over the past couple years since going public has gone wrong," wrote analyst Rich Greenfield, who upgraded the stock to buy. Greenfield noted a surge in North America spending from advertisers based in the rest of the world, likely mostly Asia, during the second half of 2018 and should benefit revenue growth this year. Greenfield in September downgraded the stock to sell before growing more positive about three months later, raising the ra...

While the Bear Cam bears hibernate, the Trump admin weighs a big plan to mine their world

When the peak of summer arrives in Alaska and the radiant midnight sun hangs in the northern sky, tens of millions of salmon make their move. They race up rivers, leap over waterfalls, and clog narrow streams with their hefty, five-pound bodies. It is then that Alaska's Bristol Bay — home to the largest run of sockeye salmon on the planet — comes to life. Wolverines, foxes, lynx, and bald eagles descend upon this untrammeled realm. And the most dominant creature of the land, the brown bear,...

Sensory tests suggest 'liking' wines made with native grapes a learned response

Consumer preference or aversion to wines made from native grapes -- such as Concord, Niagara and Catawba, which are grown in North America -- may depend on early exposure to the fruits' sweet, ultra "grapey" taste and aroma, according to researchers who conducted sensory tests with wine drinkers in Pennsylvania and California.

The Bering Strait should be covered in ice, but it's nearly all gone

During winter, the Bering Strait has historically been blanketed in ice. But this year, the ice has nearly vanished."The usually ice-covered Bering Strait is almost completely open water," Zack Labe, a climate scientist and Ph.D. candidate at the University of California at Irvine, said over email.At its narrowest point, the Arctic strait between the U.S. and Russia is 55 miles across, and there's a prominent theory that people once crossed from Asia into North America across an exposed Beri...

Oldest Frog Relative from North America Could Fit on Your Pinky Finger

It's possible that during the Triassic period, the crocodile-like phytosaur snapped at a frog-like creature, but missed. It's a good thing it did, because 216 million years later, paleontologists have found the fossils of these tiny creatures, the oldest known frog relative from North America, a new study finds.This frog -- nicknamed the Chinle frog because it was found in the Chinle Formation of northern Arizona -- is a big finding, but the creature itself was small, just over 0.5 inche...

More promising news about phages, the parasites that prey on parasites

For many years, we've been following the research on phages, viruses that kill bacteria, once a staple of Soviet medicine and now touted as a possible answer to the worrying rise of antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria. Steffanie Strathdee is an infectious disease epidemiologist; she's written a book about her husband Tom Patterson's near-death experience: Patterson was nearly killed by a large ("soccer-ball sized"), infected cyst in his gut, and his life was saved by experimental phage...

Newly discovered Tyrannosaur species was just a little fella

The Tyrannosaurus rex may have been one of the mightiest beasts to roam the ancient Earth -- though whether he was more of a scavenger than a predator has been the topic of much debate -- but Rex might have never existed at all if not for his much smaller predecessors.A newly discovered species of Tyrannosaur found in Utah is helping scientists to better understand how Tyrannosaurs arrived on the continent and spread across North America. It's an ancestor of the Rex, but unlike its much larg...

Tiny T-rex ancestor discovered in Utah

A diminutive Tyrannosaurus Rex which was barely taller than a donkey has been found in Utah. The tiny dinosaur, which stood around three to four feet tall at the hip, lived 15 million years before its terrifying descendant, and has been named Moros Intrepidus, meaning ‘harbinger of doom.’ Large 20ft tall tyrannosaurus lived in the Cretaceous, from around 81 million years ago, but the new dinosaur dates to around 96 million years ago. However it was no less ferocious, according to experts and bas...

Humans Crossed the Bering Land Bridge to People the Americas. Here’s What It Looked Like 18,000 Years Ago.

During the last ice age, people journeyed across the ancient land bridge connecting Asia to North America. That land is now submerged underwater, but a newly created digital map reveals how the landscape likely appeared about 18,000 years ago.In fact, the map shows all of Beringia -- the sprawling region that includes parts of Russia, known as western Beringia; Alaska, called eastern Beringia; and the ancient land bridge that connected the two.The timing was nigh for a new Beringia map, said Jef...

The Opportunity rover is dead

The Opportunity rover is dead, at age 15.  After spending over 5,000 Martian days rumbling through the inhospitable red desert planet, NASA acknowledged on Wednesday that its sun-powered exploration rover hasn't responded to over 600 attempts at contact since June 2018, and is presumed dead.  "I’m standing here with a sense of deep appreciation and gratitude to declare the Opportunity mission as complete," Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator of NASA's Science Mission Directorate,...

Earth is greener than it was 20 years ago, but not why you think

Two NASA satellites have watched Earth grow greener over the last 20 years -- in large part because China is hellbent on planting millions of trees. Earth's greening -- meaning the increase in areas covered by green leaves -- has made the greatest gains in China and India since the mid-1990s. "The effect comes mostly from ambitious tree-planting programs in China and intensive agriculture in both countries," NASA wrote on Tuesday as it released maps of the planet-wide changes. China kickstar...

After escaping the Trump chopping block twice, NASA's carbon sleuth will get blasted into space

In early 2017, the Trump Administration tried to ax NASA's Orbiting Carbon Observatory 3, or OCO-3. It didn't work. Then, again in 2018, the White House sought to terminate the earth science instrument.  Again, the refrigerator-sized space machine persisted.    Now, SpaceX is set to launch OCO-3 to the International Space Station in the coming months, as early as April 25. Using a long robotic arm, astronauts will attach OCO-3 to the edge of the space station, allowing the instrument t...

Humans Are Eating Most of Earth's Largest Animals to Extinction

It's hard to argue that the world is not made more interesting by singing whales the size of school buses, dinosaur-footed bird monsters that can leap clean over your head or slimy, cannibal salamanders that grow as large as crocodiles. Giant animals like these are known as megafauna. Beyond being awesome in every sense of the word, these mammoth species are crucial to keeping their respective ecosystems balanced -- and, according to a new study, about 60 percent of them are hopelessly doom...
