The Montana Conservationist November 2

This week in The Montana Conservationist:

  • An unlikely group of stakeholders is on the brink of an historic accord in the Kootenai National Forest, and they’re setting a collaborative example for others to follow
  • Take a look at the Colorado River delta, two years after groups engineered tackled an international project and started regular “pulse flows”
  • Modern Farmer takes a look at how the proposed Monsanto-Bayer merger would affect farmers
  • The parasite that killed thousands of fish in the Yellowstone this summer has been found in seven other Montana rivers, although no noticeable die-offs were reported in the others
  • The 2016 fire season is wrapped up, and experts are calling it “below-average”
  • A UC Davis study discusses why plant diversity can be a natural pesticide
  • And researchers in Australia have found that feeding cows a certain type of seaweed can reduce their methane production (this is possibly my only chance to put burps and farts in this newsletter)
  • SGI reports that songbirds are benefitting from the sage grouse conservation umbrella (ella, ella, ella, eh eh eh)

Phew! You read all that, and you’re hungry for more? All of this, and the details, in this week’s TMC: TMC-2016-11-02
