Greehouse Gas Feedback Loop Discovered in Freshwater Lakes
A new study of chemical reactions that occur when organic matter decomposes in freshwater lakes has revealed that the debris from trees suppresses production of methane - while debris from plants found in reed beds actually promotes this harmful greenhouse gas.

As vegetation in and around bodies of water continues to change, with forest cover being lost while global warming causes wetland plants to thrive, the many lakes of the northern hemisphere - already a major source of methane - could almost double their emissions in the next fifty years.

Blue-Green Algae a Threat to Hunting Dogs - With about 80,000 waterfowl hunters, Wisconsin has the third highest number of waterfowl hunters in the country. About 60 percent of those hunters use dogs to retrieve their harvested ducks and geese. Dogs don’t mind swimming in cold water, but take precautions against getting seriously ill from ingesting water contaminated with potentially toxic blue-green algae.
