For a best friend to Florida bees, each rescue is personal

Melissa Sorokin sees herself as "a bee advocate," deeply passionate about helping to rescue the at-risk creatures that play such a critical role in biodiversity.

Penn State study shows many causes of Honey bee colony loss

For years, honey bee colonies have been dying off at alarming rates. According to one study, between April 2019 and April 2020, there was a 43% colony loss across the United States. When you consider that one-third of the food we eat comes from crops pollinated by honey bees, “alarming” really is the right word for the situation.

Parasites, pesticides, climate change linked to loss of honey bee colonies

About 43% of honey bee colonies were lost in the span of one year, according to a new study that considered multiple factors that put a crucial part of the ecosystem at risk.

Honey bee colony loss in the U.S. linked to mites, extreme weather, pesticides

About one-third of the food eaten by Americans comes from crops pollinated by honey bees, yet the insect is dying off at alarming rates.

Staying home, primary care, and limiting contagion hubs may curb COVID-19 deaths

Staying home and limiting local travel, supporting access to primary care, and limiting contacts in contagion hubs — including hospitals, schools, and workplaces — are strategies that might help reduce COVID-19-related deaths, according to new research.

Unusual DNA folding increases the rates of mutations

DNA sequences that can fold into shapes other than the classic double helix tend to have higher mutation rates than other regions in the human genome. New research by a team of Penn State scientists shows that the elevated mutation rate in these sequences plays a major role in determining regional variation in mutation rates across the genome.

Scientists take a step toward understanding 'jumping genes' effect on the genome

Using state-of-the-art statistical methods, a team of researchers said they may have taken a leap closer to understanding a class of jumping genes, sequences that move to different locations in the human genome, which is the body’s complete set of DNA.

Hurricanes Wreak Greater Havoc as Temperatures Soar

Devastation caused by the most powerful hurricanes has increased by up to twentyfold, according to a newly-identified pattern in natural disasters.

Cost of natural disasters like hurricanes Katrina, Maria are increasing at high end

According to an international team of researchers, The costs of major disasters like hurricanes Katrina, Maria and Dorian or the massive tornado swarms in the Midwest have increased to a disproportionately larger extent than those of lesser events, and these major disasters have become far more expensive.

Data scientists put a staggering price tag on climate change's effects

Hurricanes, floods, and other natural disasters can destroy and displace communities. Beyond the human cost, this damage is unimaginably expensive for many who are affected. New research out Monday puts a price tag on how bad things might get.
