Seabirds suffering massive population declines. The petrel, the albatross and other birds suffer when the oceans are polluted and overfished and a new study in PLOS One suggests they are paying a heavy price.

 

Starlings on Prozac: How pharmaceuticals may affect wildlife. Recent research suggests that the commonly prescribed psychiatric drug, Prozac, occurs at environmentally relevant concentrations that can significantly alter behaviour and physiology in wild birds.

 

Bird flu epidemic proves factory-farmed chickens have come home to roost. The outbreak has required that farmers resort to fire-extinguisher foam to kill off infected flocks. Can commercial farms protect themselves, or is U.S. chicken farming fundamentally unsustainable?
