Goldenrod Golf Balls

Wed, 11/08/2017 - 20:05
A few Thanksgivings ago, my then-ten-year-old daughter and I went for an afternoon stroll. Unseasonably warm weather made for a longer than planned walk through a power line right-of-way and on down through steeply sloping woods to the Winooski River. As we moved through the tall scrub, Lauren's interest was drawn to the golf ball-sized swellings on desiccated goldenrod stalks.

EPA awards UVM $598K to explore links among algal blooms, human health, community action

Thu, 11/02/2017 - 14:43
Cyanobacteria, also known as blue-green algae, are found naturally in freshwater in the U.S. and in Lake Champlain and other Vermont waters. Cyanobacteria grow well in water that contains high levels of phosphorous and nitrogen. Cyanobacteria can multiply quickly to form dense blooms, especially during warm days of summer and fall. In recent years, cyanobacteria blooms have occurred most often in northern sections of Lake Champlain, such as St. Albans Bay and Mississquoi Bay, where researchers at the Rubenstein Ecosystem Science Laboratory conduct ongoing studies of lake ecosystem health.
