As climate change drives weather trends like intense hurricane seasons, even regions as far north as New England are seeing changes in mosquito populations. A Massachusetts mosquito-control entomologist shares her experience.
Warmer winters are allowing lone star tick populations to expand northward in the U.S., but a new analysis of historical trends argues land management and deer numbers are the primary factors.
A partnership between the National Ecological Observatory Network and the National Phenology Network makes deep troves of ecological and phenological data available for a variety of uses, including predicting populations and dynamics of insects such as mosquitoes.
A new study finds that reduced water availability—even if not quite drought conditions—lessens the quality of floral resources for honey bees and bumble bees, in turn negatively affecting their survival and reproduction rates.
