-- Cornell Q & A --

--------------------------------------------------------------------
Cornell has added a page to their website answering some of the more common questions concerning their search just ended; worth a gander:

...and since the summer will likely be slow for IBWO news I'll break my usual "ALL Ivory-bills ALL the time" rule to point to occasional other stories of interest, like the recent finding of 8 previously unknown species (crustaceans and invertebrates, just a few million years old!) in an Israeli cave (thought those caves had been pretty thoroughly surveyed since the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls decades ago -- hard to imagine that species could persist undetected by Man in an environment hardly considered life-sustaining... and for over 60 years, no less!
skeptics better jump on this one ; - ) :

Commenting on the find, Smithsonian Research Fellow Allen G. Collins said it "underscores how little we know about life on our planet and how important it is to keep looking." ...Amen to that.
