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.
A large floating garden – shaped like a Tiger paw – was recently installed in a pond on the campus of Clemson University. The garden is laced with plants and flowers that will beautify the pond and benefit the environment.
One of the most effective methods for capturing carbon from the atmosphere in the tropics of Latin America -- allowing secondary forests to regenerate on their own -- is overlooked by global climate change policies. Scientists explain how these forests quickly become substantial, important players in the fight to slow climate change.
South Carolina farmers will soon get some help from an old friend to help in their fight against insects and nematodes. Aldicarb, a chemical many farmers relied on to help with control of early-season insect pests and nematodes, was banned by Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) six years ago. Formerly sold under the trade name Temik, aldicarb was discontinued in 2010.
The 2016 Sparkleberry Fair was held April 30 on the expansive grounds of Clemson University’s Sandhill Research and Education Center. The festive extravaganza featured about two dozen educational exhibits hosted by Clemson Cooperative Extension.
