A renewable energy expert who has held several leadership positions in industry and academia will play a central role in building Clemson University’s new research and graduate education programs at its fast-growing site in North Charleston.
A rumbling robot and several high-flying drones recently made an on-site appearance at Clemson University to burrow through and buzz above 15 acres of experimental sorghum plots containing more than 2,800 replicated entries at Simpson Research Farm.
Bbioengineers are working to expand a Clemson program that teaches students how to clean, sterilize and design medical instruments so they can be reused, a practice at the center of a fast-growing industry that helps cut back on biohazardous waste and reduces hospital costs.
Inside the 11 stainless steel cylinders lined up in David Freedman’s lab at Clemson University are rock samples that were pulled from deep below the Earth’s surface and could help shed light on one of the world’s most widespread environmental challenges.
Millions of acres of magnificent longleaf pine forests that were nearly annihilated a century ago are making a slow yet promising comeback, thanks in part to a team of Clemson University researchers and their collaborators.
Trees that are removed during forest restoration projects could find their way into car bumpers and fenders as part of a study led by Srikanth Pilla of Clemson University
Clemson University associate professor and two graduate students are working with Tennessee State Parks to determine if there is such a thing as too many visitors in state parks. Their research aims to determine how an adjustment to management practices can keep three Tennessee state parks enjoyable while also allowing access to a growing number of park visitors each year.
A dangerously prolific invasive ant species called the tawny crazy ant has been spreading throughout the South and now appears to be on the verge of entering South Carolina for the first time. But a team of Clemson University scientists is hot on the trail.
Clemson University researchers are attempting to save South Carolina’s soybean growers millions of dollars each year by investigating alternative methods for reducing damage caused by white-tailed deer.
A team of Clemson University scientists recently conducted an onsite visit with representatives of the U.S. National Whitewater Center to discuss potential tactics to improve and maintain the water quality of the outdoor facility’s manmade whitewater river.
For the third straight year, a herd of hungry goats came to Clemson University to devour dense tangles of invasive plants that have plagued portions of the campus for decades.
Clemson University scientists Paul Leonard and Rob Baldwin are part of a collaborative study on how rising sea levels and increased urbanization — both now and in the future — are joining forces to fragment habitat connectivity across the region. Leonard, Baldwin and four other co-authors contributed to the paper, “Landscape Connectivity Losses Due to Sea Level Rise and Land Use Change,” about wildlife habitat connectivity in the Southeast that has been published in the journal Animal Conservation.
The first step of an ongoing-process designed to bring a valuable heirloom wheat back from the brink of extinction has been completed with flying colors.
Clemson's Coastal Research and Education Center, in conjunction with the Carolina Gold Rice Foundation, continues to expand efforts to revive nearly extinct crops tied through the centuries to the South.
When you’re dealing with something as invaluable as water, it’s good to hope for the best but plan for the worst. An ongoing collaborative effort involving Clemson University, two state agencies and one private company aims to do just that by conducting a surface water availability assessment that will eventually become a key component of a long-term, multifaceted state water plan for the rivers of South Carolina.
