Summary:Many commercial fisheries are threatened by overharvesting. However, they can’t address the problem because of inadequate scientific information, from overall population numbers to data on how fast fish grow and reproduce. Researchers have developed a model using information about landed fish catches and prices for any species. This… Read More

Summary:Cool-water corals can adapt to a slightly warmer ocean, but only if global greenhouse gas emissions are reduced, a study has found. Some corals in the normally cool waters of the Cook Islands carry genetic variants that predispose them to heat tolerance. This could help the population adapt more quickly to rising temperatures. But they may not adapt… Read More
Summary:A study of one Texas school district reveals one of the best evidence-based ways ever found to close the educational achievement gap between black and white students. The research found that teachers’ sense of collective efficacy in any one school — the belief that they had the capability and support necessary to educate their students… Read More
Summary:Forty years ago, the twin Voyagers spacecraft were launched to explore the frontiers of our solar system, and have since made countless discoveries, including finding magnetic bubbles around two of the outer planets.
Space may seem empty, but it’s actually a dynamic place populated with near-invisible matter, and dominated by forces, in… Read More
Summary:Previous studies have shown that animals can remember specific events, use tools and solve problems. But exactly what that means remains a matter of scientific dispute. Now one researcher suggests the evidence shows a wide range of animal species exhibit so-called ‘executive control’ when it comes to making decisions, consciously… Read More
