As one of two states in the nation with both a 4-H and Future Farmers of America (FFA) team in the National Wildlife Habitat Education Program Contest (WHEP) and with both teams posting stellar scores, South Carolina’s young people made their mark on the national stage after an extended absence. For the first time in more than 20 years, South Carolina had two teams compete in the National Wildlife Habitat Education Program Contest at the Rock Springs 4-H Center in Junction City July 14-17.
New research by Clemson University scientists Shari Rodriguez and Christie Sampson in the open-access journal "PLOS Biology," examines the effects non-carnivorous species such as feral hogs and elephants can have on humans and livestock and the potential consequences of excluding these animals from research focused on mitigating wildlife impacts on livestock.
A Clemson University graduate student has found adding a little color to watermelon fields can attract pollinators which can help improve quality and increase yields of one of South Carolina’s most important vegetable crops.
Clemson University researchers Patrick Jodice and Yvan Satgé went on a trailblazing expedition among an international team of seabird experts to capture black-capped petrels at sea for the first time and outfit the endangered birds with satellite transmitters.
After nine years of what he called “two geeky nerds spending a lot of time and money looking for a snake,” Bryan Hudson watched the reptile named Russell slither off into the northeast Georgia landscape barely a week after it was captured. Hudson admitted he was unlikely to lay eyes on the five-foot-long snake again for a full year. But for the Clemson University doctoral student, his collaborators and a slew of stakeholders on hand for the July 12 release, that’s when the real research on Russell began.
Private owners hold 88 percent of South Carolina's forestlands — or about 11.3 million acres — and a recent Clemson Extension workshop offered state landowners an opportunity to learn more about the carbon market and how they can create a new revenue stream and help combat climate change through participation.

Clemson Cooperative Extension experts are holding a workshop in the Upstate to show South Carolina forest landowners how they can create a new revenue stream and help combat climate change by participating in the carbon market.
Researchers will spend the next few years on and off the trails of the Clemson University Experimental Forest to better understand its value to the numerous audiences that use it. Faculty and students from the parks, recreation and tourism management department expect to emerge with findings that will help illustrate how the forest is used and aid in its future management.
In collaboration with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources and U.S. Forest Service, a Clemson University assistant professor is leading a research team to better understand how coyotes are affecting deer in the state’s Piedmont region and inform management practices to conserve its deer population for future generations of hunters.
