Weekend update: Other things found this week:
After all those interesting reports out last week, not much in the way of research resources this week at all. A bit of a flurry on the Herald blog earlier this week, but seems like the inauguration quieted everything down. We'll try again next week....

  • Endangered by Sprawl Natl Wildlife Federation report on endangered wildlife in urban areas. Among the findings: "Under existing patterns of development, 18 counties are on track to use up all their non-federal farmland and habitat to accommodate projected growth by or before 2025. Examples include Cobb, Gwinnett, and DeKalb counties in the Atlanta area, Dallas and Tarrant counties in the Dallas area, Harris County in the Houston area, and Broward County in the Miami area...Other notable places where rapid growth threatens large numbers of imperiled plants and animals include the Las Vegas area (Clark County, 97 species), Phoenix (Maricopa County, 22 species), and Florida (the Miami, Orlando, and Tampa-St. Petersburg areas)."
