Scientists from eight Ohio universities—including from Ohio State and specifically from CFAES—will lead the latest round of research supported by the Ohio Department of Higher Education’s Harmful Algal Bloom Research Initiative.
Elena Irwin, pictured, CFAES Distinguished Professor in the Department of Agricultural, Environmental, and Development Economics and faculty director of Ohio State’s Sustainability Institute, has been named one of the 47 members of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Science Advisory Board.
The Wooster Science Café resumes virtually from 7–8 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 30, when the College of Wooster’s Rick Lehtinen presents “Getting to Know the Neighbors: Squirrels, Obsessions, and Long-term Data.”
Doing good for bumble bees takes finding out what’s bad for them.
Sarah Scott, a CFAES entomology doctoral student, is studying how the fuzzy, buzzy, black-and-yellow pollinators get exposed to heavy metals in their environment—and what it can mean to their survival.

The Big Ten Network’s “Live B1G” series recently featured Ohio State’s Stone Laboratory on Lake Erie. The lab—located on Gibraltar Island, which you can see in the bay from the Put-in-Bay docks or as you enter the bay by boat—conducts research on water quality and teaches students about the lake, its water, and the creatures that rely on it, people included. You can watch the video above.
