There’s an environmental component to the research of amphibians and fish. By studying these animals and their behaviors and environments, we can understand what threats and harmful contaminants might exist.
The Ozarks are well-known for their lush forests and beautiful landscapes. But, have you ever wondered the names of certain trees? There are several easy identifying marks you can use to figure it out. “Once you have a leaf, the next step is figuring out if it is simple or compound,” said Dr. Michelle Bowe, […]
One expert shares how small amphibians and fish communicate on land and in the water.
Graduate biology student Zachary Harris won first place in the Bioinformatics, Big Data category at the International Symposium of Grapevine Physiology and Biotechnology in Verona, Italy. “We can think of the genome as the total genetic content of the organism. Embedded within that content is the instruction for making proteins,” said Harris. “Proteins are the […]
