Early warning signals of the global warming that is predicted by many scientists could be found among musk oxen and caribou in Greenland, according to U.S. and Danish researchers. Though separated by 600 miles and a continental ice sheet, the populations of the two wild animals fluctuated in similar ways in response to natural changes in long-term weather patterns in the North Atlantic, according to an article in this week's Nature. Researchers from Penn State University and the University of Copenhagen say Greenland's herds of caribou and musk oxen increased and dropped based on weather conditions created by the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO)

For my husband and I, the moorland of Dartmoor National Park is our favorite place to hike in England. Famous as the setting for the Sherlock Holmes mystery, The Hound of the Baskervilles, the moor is actually a large granite plateau dotted with high rock formations called tors. It's mostly covered in gorse, heather and bracken, but also has a soft, marshy ground. The weather can be very unpredictable and storms can blow in without warning, causing you to lose your bearings in an instant.

Sport sunglasses have that cool wrap-around frame for better visibility and lightweight feel, but when you take them off and put them in your pocket, you run the risk of scratching those very expensive lenses. A Baltimore company has come up with the perfect solution. 180s Sunglasses have temples that fold in front of the lenses. The innovative design results in a more compact profile when folded, reduced risk of breakage at the temples and added protection from scratching since the temples, when folded, help protect the shatterproof polycarbonate lenses.

It was because of the goats, Marti Cook will tell you, that she and her husband Lee got into the soap-making business.And before you can even raise an eyebrow, she goes on to say, "About four years ago we had some goats and we thought, What are we going to do with all this milk? We can't give it away. We can't sell it. We're not a dairy. It's against the law to do absolutely anything with it."Then one day, she continues, they saw somebody selling goat milk soap. "And we thought that would be something to get into, something to do with our extra milk."

Mama, do you love me?Yes I do, Dear One.How much?I love you more than the raven loves his treasure, more than the dog loves his tail, more than the whale loves his spout.How long?I'll love you until the umiak flies into the darkness, till the stars turn to fish in the sky, and the puffin howls at the moon.Mama,what if I carried our eggs - our ptarmigan eggs! - and tried to be careful, and I tried to walk slowly, but I fell and the eggs broke?Then I would be sorry. But still, I would love you.What if I put salmon in your parka, ermine in your mittens, and lemmings in your mukluks?

Eric Hoberg knows a lot about parasitic relationships.Not people. Organisms.He is one of about two dozen scientists in the world drawn to the stomachs of sea birds, the intestines of sheep and the lungs of deer -- in short, to the haunts of creatures that live inside other creatures.The 43-year-old parasitologist has gone literally around the world in pursuit of lungworms, tapeworms, flukes and other dependent critters, returning, usually with his "souvenirs," to his cramped office in a chilly basement storage room of the federal Beltsville Agricultural Research Center.
