A groundbreaking study conducted by scientists in South Dakota has found that the world's most widely used family of pesticides — neonicotinoids — is likely causing serious birth defects in mule deer. And the Centers for Disease control finds it widespread in people.
In the past 50 years, North America has lost 3 billion birds. Luckily, we know how to reverse the decline.
Migrating songbirds exposed to small amounts of a neonicotinoid pesticide suffered weight loss and migration delays, both of which could reduce their chances of survival, according to a new study.
Excreted honeydew contains high doses of neonicotinoids.
If you find yourself sipping a cold brew with a piece of watermelon in your hand this summer, you can thank the bees for making that snack possible.
Bees exposed to neonicotinoid pesticide become hyperactive before crashing out, reducing their ability to forage
Harmful pesticides such as glyphosate, atrazine and neonicotinoids were found in nearly all samples of water from the St. Lawrence River and its tributaries, with many samples containing levels higher than the guideline to protect aquatic life, according to new research.
The bill, H.205, would curtail home use of neonicotinoid pesticides — a relatively new class of insecticides related to nicotine — by classifying them as "restricted use" pesticides, meaning only licensed applicators could buy and use them.
Lessons from environmental and economic restoration efforts in the Ruhr Valley could help usher Appalachia into a new era.
By keeping Americans focused on the climate benefits of gas vs. coal, industry seeks to delay a broader debate of the deficits of gas vs. renewables.
Study finds decreasing lead in topsoil coincides with reductions in children's blood levels, which suggests playing around the dirt may be an important source of the toxic for children
