If there’s one universal need in the animal kingdom, it’s the burning desire to reproduce. Robert Mason, a biologist who has spent years studying garter snakes, is featured along with an explanatory video taken in a Manitoba snake mating den.
Battery storage will play a major role in achieving our clean energy goals, but there need to be improvements to current capabilities. OSU chemistry professor David Ji is leading a team across the country using a $3 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to develop a sustainable, rechargeable battery.
Oregon’s commercial Dungeness crabbing fleet has the go-ahead to hit the water this weekend after repeated delays. Francis Chan, a marine ecology professor at Oregon State University who has done research on the changes in Oregon’s coastal waters for more than a decade, said there are number of causes for concern.
