A project involving Purdue University led to the launch of a Lake Michigan nearshore buoy that will provide boaters and beachgoers with more real-time data on lake conditions.
Janna Willoughby developed a novel approach for identifying endangered species by the rate of geneti
A Purdue University study presents a novel approach for identifying vertebrate populations at risk of extinction by estimating the rate of genetic diversity loss, a measurement that could help researchers and conservationists better identify and rank species that are threatened or endangered.
This year's record rainfall across parts of the Midwest could make it more difficult for grain producers to determine a late-season irrigation strategy, a Purdue and Michigan State Extension irrigation specialist says.
