Aquatic invasive species are short-circuiting benefits from mercury reduction in the Great Lakes

University of Wisconsin-Madison

According to a new study published today [Nov. 4, 2019] in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 40 years of reduced mercury use, emissions, and loading in the Great Lakes region have largely not produced equivalent declines in the amount of mercury accumulating in large game fish.

In Wisconsin, 3 in 5 people with Down syndrome diagnosed with dementia by age 55

University of Wisconsin-Madison

A new study of 3,000 people in Wisconsin aged 21 and older with Down syndrome, published today [Monday, Oct. 28, 2019] in JAMA Neurology by researchers at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, shows that by age 55, three in five will be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or a similar neurodegenerative condition. Meanwhile, people without Down syndrome are rarely diagnosed with dementia before age 65.

Deepest Look Yet at Brewer’s Yeasts Reveals the Diversity Harnessed by Humans

University of Wisconsin-Madison

In the deepest look yet at the diversity of these yeasts, scientists from the University of Wisconsin–Madison reveal the dizzying complexity found in bottles of beer, wine and cider. By sequencing the genomes of more than 100 hybrid yeasts, the researchers discovered seven distinct combinations of yeast species, many of them tied to unique fermented beverages.

Newly Discovered Virus Infects Bald Eagles Across America

University of Wisconsin-Madison

Researchers have discovered a previously unknown virus infecting nearly a third of America’s bald eagle population. Scientists at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, USGS and the Wisconsin DNR found the virus while searching for the cause of Wisconsin River Eagle Syndrome, an enigmatic disease endemic to bald eagles near the Lower Wisconsin River. The newly identified bald eagle hepacivirus, or BeHV, may contribute to the fatal disease, which causes eagles to stumble and have seizures.

Scientists Connected Fragments of Pine Savanna and New Species Keep Showing Up

University of Wisconsin-Madison

By connecting small, restored patches of savanna to one another via habitat corridors at an experimental landscape within the Savannah River Site in South Carolina, a nearly 20-year-long study has shown an annual increase in the number of plant species within fragments over time, and a drop in the number of species disappearing from them entirely.
