...ortant to soil fertility that they may be a better barometer of forest ecosystem health than the larger trees or animals which live there, researchers say. In natural forest communities there are more than 200 species of arthropods and more than 200,000 individuals in a square meter of soil, and the numbers of...

...ous rib fat. Intramuscular fat, or marbling, is a barometer of beef juiciness and flavor. Subcutaneous fat is waste and is removed before meat cuts hit store shelves. Marbling increased in the younger animals at a higher rate, and the layer of undesirable rib fat was smaller, Berger said. All animals were h...
