Overexploitation and population collapse pose significant threats to marine fish stocks across the globe. While certain fish populations have already collapsed, research indicates that nearly one third of fisheries worldwide are currently impacted by overharvesting. In “Meeting Yield and Conservation Objectives by Harvesting Both Juveniles and Adults,” published in The American Naturalist, Niklas L.P. Lundström, […]

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – For men and women affected with antiphospholipid syndrome (APS), blood thinners are the main treatment option. “Unfortunately, treatment with blood thinners does not prevent all cases of blood clotting in APS,” says Jason Knight, M.D., Ph.D., an assistant professor of rheumatology at Michigan Medicine. APS is an autoimmune condition characterized by […]

Credit: America’s Wildlife Values research team Abundant and healthy wildlife populations are a cultural and ecological treasure in the United States. Over time, however, the decisions about how agencies manage wildlife have become highly contested: How should managers handle human-wildlife conflict, endangered species restoration and predator control? A new 50-state study on America’s Wildlife Values […]
