50% Decline in Mallard Population Sparks Research Efforts

The U.S. population of eastern mallards - dabbling ducks with distinctive green heads - has plunged inexplicably by 50 percent in the last 20 years, causing scientists to launch research into the birds' productivity, changes in their habitat and their genetic diversity. Long-term data collected along the Atlantic Flyway indicates the birds' numbers are falling dramatically, but scientists cannot explain why.
