OSU study suggests rate of severe forest fires to increase (Jefferson Public Radio)

Lawsuit claims border wall would be bad for animals (Newsweek)

The lawsuit claims the 654 miles of existing walls and fences along the U.S.-Mexico border have already destroyed wildlife habitat and altered ecosystems. Clint Epps, a wildlife biologist at Oregon State University, told BBC News manmade barriers have stopped many animals, not just humans, from crossing the border. 

Why predators and prey should recover together (Futurity)

“You might think the loss of income associated with reducing harvest on both species at the same time would be greater than reducing harvest on one species after another, but our work suggests that synchronous recovery is ultimately better for recovering the ecosystem—and better from an economic perspective as well,” says coauthor Mark Novak of the Oregon State University College of Science.

Frequent PE helps adolescents to be better informed about physical activity’s role in health (Health Medicine Network)

Frequent, long-term instruction in physical education not only helps adolescents be more fit but also equips them with knowledge about how regular physical activity relates to good health, research at Oregon State University shows. (see also ANIMedical Xpress)

Study examines impact of common risk factors for outcomes on home and birth center births (Medical Xpress)

Women with some characteristics commonly thought to increase pregnancy risks—being over age 35; being overweight; and in some cases, having a vaginal birth after a cesarean section—tend to have good outcomes when they give birth at home or in a birth center, a new assessment has found. However, with some other , a breech baby and some other cases of vaginal after cesarean or VBAC, may face an increased risk of poor outcomes for themselves or their babies, researchers at Oregon State University have found.

Chapin family grows, dries hazelnuts (Capital Press)

“We are very thankful for the forward thinking at (Oregon State University) in starting a hazelnut breeding program. Without the resistant varieties recently developed our industry would be in a rapid decline rather than the growing, vibrant industry it is today.”

Researcher breeds better haksap berries (Capital Press)

Some people take up new projects in retirement. Golfing, say, or restoring old cars. But for plant breeder Maxine Thompson, retirement from her position as a professor of horticulture at Oregon State University offered the chance to focus on a pet project she’s been involved with for many years: haksap berries.

More than one ocean motion determines tsunami size (Science News)

Using two wave-making machines at Oregon State University in Corvallis, Song and colleagues revisited the decades-old experiment. Oarlike paddles pushed water upward and outward in some tests and just upward in others. Adding horizontal motion caused higher waves than vertical motion alone, the researchers found.
