By Sylvia Kantor, College of Agricultural, Human & Natural Resource Sciences SEATTLE – Washington State University aquatic ecotoxicologist Jenifer McIntyre will share her research on the lethal impacts of stormwater for fish as well as solutions that are within reach.
By Eric Sorensen, WSU science writer PULLMAN, Wash. – A Washington State University biologist has found the genetic mechanism that lets a fish live in toxic, acidic water. The discovery opens new insights into the functioning of other “extremophiles” and how they adapt to their challenging environments.
By Will Ferguson, College of Arts & Sciences PULLMAN, Wash. – Jesse Brunner did a double take as he surveyed a pond in southern Arizona’s San Rafael Valley. It was home to endangered tiger salamanders and, over the course of one week, every salamander Brunner could find was sick or dying.
By Eric Sorensen, WSU science writer PULLMAN, Wash. – Using fish bred at Washington State University, an international team of researchers has mapped the genetic profile of the rainbow trout, a versatile salmonid whose relatively recent genetic history opens a window into how vertebrates evolve.
