* Do fitness trackers really work? (2016-Apr-07) [ABC News]
Fitness trackers are the accessory of the moment for the aspirationally active — you can see them dangling from wrists and pinned to belts everywhere.

* The case of the zombie roadkill (2016-Apr-19) [Life on the verge]
Why is this interesting? Well, we’ve always known that counting roadkill for small animals was difficult. Squirrel gliders are small and, rather inconveniently, exactly the same colour as the pavement. This means they’re tricky to spot. Now that we know they can end up 100s of km from the place they’re hit, roadkill counts are looking like an even less reliable measure for this species. And it turns out that this isn’t unique to squirrel gliders. Animals as big as koalas have been found wedged under the bumpers of cars or trucks. So when it comes to understanding the impacts of roads, or selecting places where crossing structures should go, it seems that a carcass on the roadside only tells part of the story.
