Assessing the Arctic

Arctic researchers, including UT Arlington Biology Associate Professor Laura Gough, are studying the effects of global warming on songbirds, Audubon Magazine reported. Although the life histories of migratory waterfowl and other animals and plants have been more thoroughly studied in the arctic, "the migratory songbird picture is just a big hole in our  knowledge," said Gough, who is co-investigator in the research.

Trouble with prevention programs

A new UT Arlington study finds that students attending schools with anti-bullying initiatives may be more likely to be a victim of bullying than children at schools without such programs, Education News and All Voices reported. "One possible reason for this is that the students who are victimizing their peers have learned the language from these anti-bullying campaigns and programs," said Seokjin Jeong, an assistant professor of criminology and criminal justice at UT Arlington and lead author of the study.
