RESEARCH
Pollinators vital to food supply facing extinction, U.N. report warns
A growing number of pollinator species that are key to the world's food supply are headed toward extinction, warns a new United Nations report -- the first global assessment of pollinators. "If pollinator declines continue at this rate, it will have serious implications not just for human food security and economics, but also for biodiversity and the health of ecosystems in general," explains Emory's Berry Brosi, one of the lead authors of the report.

Quote

 

"The president certainly cares about his legacy, and successfully filling the [Supreme Court] seat, overcoming the impasse with the Senate, and placing a political moderate on the bench could go a long way to burnishing that legacy during his last year."
Tom S. Clark, The Guardian, Feb. 25, 2016
