Warnell researchers awarded multiple grants to work on creating stress and disease-resistant trees

Researchers at the Warnell School think they’ve come up with a system to identify the genes in trees responsible for stress tolerance, which includes everything from extreme temperatures to disease. Now they’re using a new $490,000 grant to identify those genes and figure out how they work. Identifying those stress-control genes and understanding their function could help us create trees that can resist the very things that can kill them, said C. J. Tsai, the lead researcher on the project. Full story

Warnell researchers identify, name toxic cyanobacteria killing American bald eagles across the Southeast

In a paper published recently in Phytotaxa, they named it Aetokthonos hydrillicola and lay out evidence that it is responsible for the eagle deaths. Full story
