The Clemson University Wood Utilization and Design Institute continues to add to its cadre of founding partners and has received a $50,000 boost to help support the advancement of the South Carolina wood industry.
The emergence of microplastics as a pollutant-harboring hazard in the oceans is a hot topic in scientific circles, but recent research by a Clemson University scientist and his collaborators suggests there is another potential danger lurking in marine habitats that has been previously ignored.
A Clemson University professor has been awarded a $1 million grant to study movement patterns and at-sea habitat use of brown pelicans along the southeast coast of the United States to obtain baseline data that can be used to help researchers understand potential risks to birds in the marine and coastal environment.
Although fires have roared through the Appalachian Mountains devouring thousands of acres since October, a Clemson University professor wants people to understand not all fires are bad. Rob Baldwin, a forestry and environmental conservation professor, has received a three-year grant for $216,000 from the United States Department of Agriculture Forest Services to fund outreach activities for the Consortium of Appalachian Fire Managers and Scientists
Clemson University doctoral candidate Abby Lawson is helping lead a tracking study that could be instrumental in understanding how to effectively manage alligator populations.
For about 15 years, the state’s most destructive forest insect has been lying low in South Carolina. But damage caused by recent droughts, storms and fires raises the specter of a resurgence. Sizable infestations of southern pine beetles have been few and far between since the last major outbreak in 2000-2002, when the tiny but voracious creatures caused about $1.5 billion in damage in the southeastern United States.
A trio of Clemson University scientists has unveiled a groundbreaking computational software called “GFlow” that makes wildlife habitat connectivity modeling vastly faster, more efficient and superior in quality and scope.
Feral hogs are a $115 million problem for the state’s agriculture, livestock and timber industries in South Carolina, according to a Clemson University study on landowners’ perceived damages from the invasive animals. This is the first time a comprehensive dollar figure has been attached to the ecological and industry damages caused by wild hogs, which reproduce rapidly and are growing in numbers.
Researchers from Clemson University and the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources are determining how to bring back fox squirrels to the Midlands region of South Carolina. If successful, this project could become a model for the rest of the state.
Katie Teets of Lake Worth, Florida, a Clemson University master’s degree student in wildlife and fisheries biology, won the Best Master’s Student Poster Award at the recent 2016 annual conference of The Wildlife Society.
To help meet the expected high demand for graduates in agriculture, the Clemson College of Agriculture, Forestry and Life Sciences will hold its first-ever Ag Leadership and Advocacy Event to introduce students and others to the various job opportunities available in agriculture.
Clemson Professor Rob Baldwin is working to turn a piece of Kershaw County in to a nucleus for discussion and collaboration in a quest to encourage forest restoration, environmental understanding and economic growth. Researchers from Clemson, the Medical University of South Carolina and the University of South Carolina will use the property for collaboration and research.
