The recent measurements of Z decay at the SLAC Linear Collider and the CERN e+e- collider LEP, when combined with nonaccelerator experiments, rule out various weakly-interacting-massive-particle (WIMP) candidates for dark matter including Dirac neutrinos, and strongly constrain all others. I discuss this, along with other implications of current Z measurements for the discovery of WIMPs in the laboratory.
