New model explains why costly insect 'outbreaks' hard to predict

...revailing but flawed insect-outbreak theories, and supplementing the combined theory with additional data, the researchers produced a mathematical model that reproduces the unpredictable outbreaks of gypsy moth populations more accurately than any model yet. "We used gypsy moths as our example, but this theor...

Hatchery salmon may threaten wild populations

...harm than good. Many salmon recovery plans include supplementing the wild population with hatchery-raised fish. But new research shows that hatchery salmon can readily adapt to captivity and transfer these traits to wild populations. "As the population adapts to the hatchery, its survival rate in the wild goes do...

Findings conclude sustained caffeine intake negates the benefits of creatine supplements

...udies have shown increased muscle PCr levels after supplementing with 20-30 grams of creatine monohydrate daily. Creatine supplementation has also been known to shorten relaxation time during intermittent maximal iosometric muscle contraction. This shortened time, coupled with a creatine loaded muscle facilitate...

Researchers call herbs rich source of healthy antioxidants; oregano ranks highest
