With so many exciting and compelling things happening in the natural world and biology these days, it can be difficult to keep up with the latest natural science news. We at NATURE love reading all the latest reports, as well as keeping tabs on specific animals we’ve featured in our films. Here’s a round-up of articles we’ve been reading this week:

On the opposite side of the spectrum, a fungus threatens to decimate amphibians in North America, but this time, scientists stand ready.
Finally, read how this one odd bird embodies the Endangered Species Act debate, and be sure to tune in to watch our rebroadcast and streaming of The Sagebrush Sea on September 19!
