Biology in the news

Every day, newspapers print articles related to biology. Maybe someone has reported a previously unknown species, such as the Goodman’s mouse lemur, discovered in the island of Madagascar in 2005. Maybe it’s a story about the effect of a low-fat diet on the risk of developing cancer. Some articles discuss biology-related questions or problems, such as the use of a mercury-based preservative in certain vaccines. What biology news stories interest you? 

In this activity you will be using the biozine in our textbook to find articles about science and answer some questions regarding your article.
