If you could produce the same amount of food with fewer resources, wouldn't you? That is the goal of new research led by Justin Gibson, a PhD student in the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's School of Natural Resources and a Robert B. Daugherty Water for Food Global Institute student support grantee. The research recently was published in the Journal of Hydrology and Earth System Sciences. UNL hydrogeophysicst and DWFI Faculty Fellow Trenton Franz is also involved with the project.

But a study from John Benson and colleagues provides evidence that the eastern coyote hunts moose and other large prey far less frequently than does the eastern wolf - instead preferring to attack smaller game or scavenge human leftovers.
