Really interesting to read how the mite, fungus and virus may have come together in a 'perfect storm' for the poor bees. And good to hear that the organic bee keepers have an advantage in this fight! Here in Boulder (Colorado), most of our apiculturists are organic (as are most of our farmers).

what a great article on rats! I had no idea that "rat fancy" groups were so recent (now I'm wondering how new guinea pig fancier groups are!) (both species of great phenotypic plasticity, and both used in medical research for humans).

what a terrific article on stem cells! I went to graduate school in biophysics years ago, and I learned a lot from this. Thank you!

Another great website for people interested in keeping chickens is -- they have a good "breed selector tool" on their website, and excellent info on raising backyard chickens. Nice article!

Nice history, and a great Senegal photo! I've had parrots for years, and I learned a lot here. I hope all readers note the need for a specialized diet for their bird -- not seed only -- as this is a common, potentially fatal mistake on the part of the bird's caregiver. Thanks for a great column!
