The golden drool: Study finds treasure trove of info in saliva of foraging bears (Science Magazine)

“In the past, population estimates have been largely based on visual observations and on the analysis of fecal samples,” said Taal Levi, an assistant professor of fisheries and wildlife at Oregon State University and co-author on the study. “We found that using bear saliva is not only easier and cheaper as a research tool, it is more effective.” (see also UPI)

This is why you should stop chasing 10,000 steps a day (Women’s Fitness)

But to be honest, chasing that number can cause a lot of stress. With the popularity of fitness trackers, we’ve become more competitive with each other as we try to beat their number of steps, and when we don’t, we don’t feel good enough. Well, according to new research from Oregon State University, 3,000 steps a day is perfectly adequate – just as long as they’re at a higher intensity.

Weird and wonderful narwhals wield sonic ‘spotlight’ (Cosmos)

On Oregon campuses, Trump’s win leaves students ‘grieving’ but motivated (Oregonian)

Isamar Chavez, 21, another first-time voter and an Oregon State University senior, said she voted for Clinton even though she supported Sanders in the primary. She understands voter apathy. Young people saw two candidates who didn’t represent them, she said. (see also Gazette-Times)

Need a quick fix for poor garden soil? Build a raised bed (Oregonian)

“Raised beds are great, especially in western Oregon where gardeners deal with mud and rain,” said Brooke Edmunds, a horticulturist with Oregon State University Extension Service. “In urban areas, we typically have soils of poor quality. Raised beds allow you to build up and get a good root system despite that.”

Ice crawlers and drinking water (Corvallis Advocate)

Oregon State University professor Andy Moldenke will speak on the unique ecosystem at the top of Marys Peak, a location that is home to wingless grasshoppers, rare arthropods called ice crawlers, and other critters. Ken McCall, former Forest Service overseer of Marys Peak, will also be there to discuss the little-known story of why Corvallis has some of the purest, cleanest drinking water in the region.

The smartphone app accompanies OSU Extension’s 2013 publication, “How to Reduce Bee Poisoning from Pesticides.”

‘Heart of a Forest': Navigating environmental understanding (Oregon ArtsWatch)

Representatives from Spring Creek Project for Ideas, Nature and the Written Word at Oregon State University reached out to Miller after learning about his National Geographic Explorer Award and similar projects he’d shown at the Sundance Film Festival. They offered him an artist residency at the HJ Andrews Experimental Forest in the Cascade Range under the project’s Long-Term Ecological Reflections program, which for a dozen years has invited writers and artists to interact with environmental scientists, explore the forest, and write or create art. Beginning in fall 2015, Miller visited the forest in each season to get a sense of how the environment changed throughout the year.
