Seabirds and shorebirds, some of the most threatened animals on Earth, are dependent upon and contribute to robust ocean and coastal ecosystems. Invasive predators on seabird islands reduce their breeding success. Endangered seabirds, like albatrosses and petrels, are caught inadvertently in fishing gear on the high seas.
The PEN/E. O. Wilson Literary Science Writing Award celebrates writing that exemplifies literary excellence on the subject of physical and biological sciences. The winner receives a cash award of $10,000 and will be honored at the PEN Literary Awards.
From the natural sciences to the social sciences to the humanities to the arts, the availability of more data and cheaper computing is transforming research. As costs for sensors, sequencing, and other forms of data collection decline, researchers can generate data at greater and greater scale, relying on parallel increases in computational power to make sense of it all and allowing the ...
A deeper understanding of how plants function and respond to stress is essential to address global challenges such as climate change, the increasing demand for food and the consequences that both have for Earth?s environment and the quality of life. In collaboration with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI), the HHMI/GBMF Plant Biology Investigator Program seeks to improve this ...
An application for the DOE EERE (energy efficiency and renewable energy), Solutions to Improve the Energy Efficiency of U.S.
The Materials Research Institute (MRI) and Penn State Institutes of Energy and the Environment (PSIEE) have identified three themes of convergence where we are asking faculty to develop high risk, high impact, transformative ideas that will enable Penn State faculty to obtain preliminary data that can be used to pursue larger federal grants in the area of:
