A University of Washington team is investigating an emerging solution to help achieve freshwater conservation goals by re-envisioning the ways in which water is released by dams
Even as researchers test poplars’ potential to morph into everything from ethanol to chemicals in cosmetics and detergents, a commercial-scale processing plant for poplars has yet to be achieved
Bacteria provide a microbial partner to help protect trees from the toxic effects of pollutants and break down the toxins plants bring in from contaminated groundwater
A University of Washington team has made new headway on a solution to remove beetle-killed trees from the forest and use them to make renewable transportation fuels or high-value chemicals
“We really need to think about people as we’re creating conservation initiatives," study's lead author says
A University of Washington study is the first to broadly examine the ecological and financial impacts of seafood mislabeling
The visualization draws upon flow models from electronic circuit theory, taking inspiration from existing visualizations of wind flow across the U.S.
Very little is known about how marine microbes interact and carry out fundamental processes in the ocean, particularly in deep, low-oxygen waters where the impacts of climate change are becoming significant
The method relies on small radio frequency (RFID) tags that are stuck on, printed, or drawn onto the paper to create interactive, lightweight interfaces
“We’ve shown that lead is harmful by eating the dirt, not from eating the lettuce grown in the dirt," researcher says.
