The spring 2019 issue of ecoNEWS VT is here! In this edition, some of the research we highlight includes a survey of Vermont residents’ intention to adopt green stormwater infrastructure and a new tool showing how the local climate has changed. We hope you enjoy!
Researchers from the University of Vermont examined genetic structure of martens in the northeastern US to determine whether a reintroduction attempt was successful.
A recent study by researchers from the University of Vermont looked at key factors that influence residential intention to adopt specific green stormwater infrastructure (GSI) practices and barriers to this adoption.
Decisions farmers make over the spring and summer can dramatically increase greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions later in the winter. That’s a key takeaway from a new University of Vermont study that shows, for the first time, that the impacts of farmers’ manure use decisions extend beyond the growing season to influence emissions on warm winter days.
