ABSTRACT
The article offers science news briefs as of October 1, 2012. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) reported greater numbers of ducks in 2012 than 2011. Stanford University researchers Douglas McCauley, Paul DeSalles, and Hillary Young found that replacing native trees with nonnative trees led to marine life declines in the Line Island's Palmyra Atoll. Researchers at North Carolina State University found that a home's proximity to a U.S. national wildlife refuge can increase its value.
