In the News: Biodiversity Ancient and New

Bunny-sized dinosaurs are among the important paleontological studies released this week. We also read about rethinking human migration, the dangerous loss of biodiversity, a unique mushroom collection, and more:

  • Between rapidly disappearing species and an unclear picture of the number of species in existence, researchers are having trouble determining the state of Earth’s biodiversity: “Biodiversity: Life - a status report,” Nature (10 Dec 2014)

  • This amateur collector’s mushroom collection may be the envy of the forest: “The Mushroom Man,” Scientific American (18 Nov 2014)
