U Maine Students Study Snow-Soil Connection
Maine Public Broadcasting - 5/10/2015.
By Jennifer Mitchell - While the past two winters have featured plenty of the white stuff, snow packs over the last couple of decades have dwindled, say climate experts.

Journal of Applied Ecology - 5/8/2015.
By Diego J. Inclán et al. - The researchers found higher abundance and species richness of tachinid parasitoids on organic than on conventional farms and on field margins than on field centres. At the landscape scale, the diversity of tachinids was higher in landscapes with higher proportions of organic land. At both scales, the positive effect of organic farming was clear for arable fields, while it was almost neutral for grasslands.
