The medal is the highest honor the space agency bestows to non-government personnel.
Researchers from Clemson University’s College of Science have shown for the first time that salamanders inhabiting the southern Appalachian Mountains use temperature rather than humidity as the best cue to anticipate changes in their environment. Significantly, the researchers observed that salamanders actually harness their unique ability to regenerate limbs to rapidly minimize the impact of hot temperatures.
An agreement between Clemson University and Erskine College will allow mathematics students at the Due West school to transfer to Clemson after three years and earn bachelor’s degrees from both schools in just two more years.
CLEMSON, South Carolina – College of Science undergraduate researcher Eugene Bishop is first author on a recently published article in the journal Genomics.
