Dramatic changes needed in farming practices to keep pace with climate change
Major changes in agricultural practices will be required to offset increases in nutrient losses due to climate change, according to research published by a Lancaster University-led team. To combat repeated, damaging storm events, which strip agricultural land of soil and nutrients, farmers are already adopting measures to conserve these assets where they are needed.

Buried alive: Aquatic plants survive in ‘ghost ponds’ under agricultural fields
Aquatic plants in ‘ghost ponds' are able to survive more than 100 years buried beneath cropped agricultural fields, according to new UCL research. Ghost ponds are abundant across many agricultural regions, often visible as damp depressions, areas of poor crop cover, or changes in soil colour. Many UK ponds were filled-in during agricultural land intensification that took place after the 1950s.

Counting steps via smartphones reveals intriguing clues about obesity
A pedestrian walks across O‘Connell Bridge in Dublin, Ireland. Stanford researchers used data captured from smartphones of hundreds of thousands of people around the globe to discover a public health risk they call 'activity inequality.' (Image credit: Giuseppe Milo / Creative Commons) A global study based on daily steps counted by smartphones discovers ‘activity inequality.' It's similar to income inequality, except that the ‘step-poor' are prone to obesity while the ‘step-rich' tend toward fitness and health.

Evaluating approaches to agricultural development
Evaluating approaches to agricultural development
As the old saying goes, teaching someone to fish is far more helpful than just giving them a fish. Now, research from WorldFish and MIT takes that adage a step further: Better yet, the study found, is working with the fishermen to help develop better fishing methods. Involving local people in figuring out how to improve their farming and fishing methods provides more lasting and widespread benefits than just introducing new technologies or methods, the researchers showed.

Naturalness as a success factor
"Naturalness" is a construct - but according to a new study from the ETH Consumer Behavior group, a product's success on the food market is primarily defined by whether or not consumers perceive it as natural. The increasingly artificial and virtual nature of everyday life has now achieved broad acceptance, and the benefits that technological development bring to everyone cannot be denied.

High pregnancy failure in southern resident killer whales; links to nutritional stress and low salmon abundance
A multi-year survey of the nutritional, physiological and reproductive health of endangered southern resident killer whales suggests that up to two-thirds of pregnancies failed in this population from 2007 to 2014. The study links this orca population's low reproductive success to stress brought on by low or variable abundance of their most nutrient-rich prey, Chinook salmon.

N.Y. honeybees stung hard by varroa mite, researchers find
A small mite is causing big trouble for New York's honeybee population and putting in peril the fruit and vegetable crops that depend on these pollinators. Other beekeeper team findings ‘ A study of 30 apple orchards revealed a high level of pesticide exposure (five acute cases, 22 chronic). The majority of the high-risk insecticides appear to be coming not from the apples or the pollen that bees are collecting from the apples, but from wildflowers surrounding the orchards, which points to a potential issue in grower spray practices.

Shrubs, grasses planted through federal program crucial for sage grouse survival in Eastern Washington
The sage grouse is an exceptionally showy bird and an icon of the American West. But its sagebrush habitat is disappearing, and there is debate over how best to protect the populations in an increasingly developed landscape. A new study by University of Washington, state and federal researchers analyzed sage grouse in Eastern Washington and showed a surprisingly large benefit from a federal program that subsidizes farmers to plant year-round grasses and native shrubs instead of crops.

Recognizing food brands puts preschoolers at risk for obesity
ANN ARBOR'Young children who recognize food name brands, such as Lucky Charms, M&M's and Cheetos, often eat unhealthy items that lead to their high body mass index. The risk of this weight gain, according to a new University of Michigan study, occurs independently of other variables, including family demographics or TV viewing.
