Thousands of scientists issue bleak ‘second notice’ to humanity (Washington Post)

This letter, spearheaded by Oregon State University ecologist William Ripple, serves as a “second notice,” the authors say: “Soon it will be too late to shift course away from our failing trajectory.” (see also Chicago Tribune, Toronto Star, New Zealand Herald)

To predict what research will be transformative, a crystal ball might be your best option (Science)

Last year, marine ecology postdoc Sarah Gravem was having a routine discussion with her adviser and some graduate students about the experiments they were planning when the conversation took an unexpected turn. Gravem, who studies the ecological consequences of sea star wasting disease for intertidal ecosystems at Oregon State University in Corvallis, told them that she “didn’t think the experiment was ‘transformative’ enough,” she writes in an email to Science Careers. Her adviser, Bruce Menge, “bristled and said that he didn’t like that word, because he thinks scientists have no way of knowing if something will be transformative before performing an experiment,” she recalls.

Hate smoky summers, Portland and Seattle? Here’s how the crisis in the woods is really a social problem (Investigate West)

Can Portland expect more smoky summers? Absolutely; it just depends how the winds blow, says Philip Mote, director for the Climate Change Research Institute at Oregon State University.

Going in for the Krill (Terra)

Count Oregon State University marine ecologist Kim Bernard among those who are beginning to hear faint warning bells. It isn’t just an increase in human harvesting of krill — which also are used for aquaculture feed and pet food — that concerns the native of South Africa. It is what humans are doing to the planet that may be the biggest threat to the Antarctic krill, she says.

Dr. Kathryn Linder discusses online learning efficacy and OSU’s new database (ELearning News)

Dr. Kathryn Linder is a Research Director at Oregon State University’s Ecampus Research Unit. Last week, they announced the launch of the Online Learning Efficacy Research Database.

Woman’s garden full of flowers from Shakespeare’s plays (Statesman Journal)

“Plants meant so much to people who went to see his plays,” said Rhonda Nowak, an Oregon State University Extension Service master gardener since 2011. “People then were more connected to plants then we are; they used them for medicinal purposes and knew the tales behind them.”
