A new study finds zero evidence that flies and cockroaches can carry the virus that causes COVID-19 from one surface to another—adding to a chorus of studies finding no role among arthropods in coronavirus transmission.
Could specialty cut flowers grown in high tunnels attract pollinators to nearby agricultural crops—and provide growers with a supplemental income source? A research team in Wyoming finds promising results.
A study looking at floral density and pollinators finds that some types of pollinating insects prefer dense flower patches more than others, but that preference can also vary by flower species, too. The complicated findings offer clues to how multiple pollinator species co-exist and compete for floral resources.
First arriving in California in 2014, the mosquito species Aedes notoscriptus, native to Australia and the southwest Pacific, has since established and spread to 44 cities in three counties. A new study examines the public health implications of this species and documents its likely arrival and expansion routes.
