The Week in Pictures: International Year of Biodiversity, Sweden Allows Wolf Hunting, Frog Eats Snake, Geoglyphs Discovered, and More (Slideshow)

From the news that a single bluefin tuna has been sold for the highest price in the past nine years at a Tokyo fish auction to the government of Sweden allowing wolf hunting after a 45-year ban to dwindle the population of 237 down to 210 wolves, a lot happened this week in green. The United Nations has declared 2010 the Year of Biodiversity, WWF has released a list of the top endangered species to watch in 2010, researchers in California discovered a new red fox subspecies in the midst of the hyper-developed Sacramento valley, a new strawberry crab has been discovered off the coast of Taiwan, and readers sent in photos of their communities taking action against climate change for our weekly slideshow.

Find out what else happened in the world of green this week in our photo roundup of most popular, most important, and most oddball stories. And if you missed it, view last week's The Week in Pictures: Wind Turbine Christmas Star, 10 Years in Green, Mutant Superbugs, and More (Slideshow)
