  1. http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0006320716301264 ~ This June, 2016 research article published in Biological Conservation presents findings from a comprehensive survey of the threats resulting in the collapse of vulture populations, primarily due to ingestion of dietary toxins. Declining vulture populations may result in trophic cascades within local ecosystems as well as disease outbreaks. Vultures are obligate vertebrate scavengers which is an essential service for eliminating decaying meat and entrails on carcasses.
