For Princeton students interested in the environment, the diverse world of environmental studies can encompass a variety of intersecting passions. For Candice Chow-Gamboa, that intersection was sustainable agriculture and global poverty.
“The impetus for my career path is the issue of how to feed the world without depleting its resources, and I discovered how those two things work together during my time at Princeton as an under
David Medvigy is lead author of a study highlighting how destruction of the Amazon rainforest could affect climate elsewhere.
"The Matriarch" follows the life of Jada, an elephant and the matriarch of her family who has survived a brutal poaching attack.
“Curse of the Gazelle King” investigates the elusive lives of Grant's Gazelles through one man's story about a young gazelle named Lenana.
The mystery surrounding the Southern Ocean is just one of the research projects being conducted out of a Princeton University laboratory at the Forrestal Center.
Civil and environmental engineering professor Eric Wood and his research team have developed a drought monitoring and forecast system for sub-Saharan Africa.
Princeton University research examined the effects of bird-song recordings known as "playbacks" on birds in the wild. Used by birdwatchers to draw reclusive birds out of their hideaways, the playbacks could have potentially negative consequences, especially in terms of diverting a bird's energy from essential tasks such as tending to its nest. The research is out of the lab of David Wilcove, professor of ecology and evolutionary biology and public affairs.
Film explores the ways in which the clubs are using experiential learning to educate students about local conservation issues, and how the students then share what they've learned with their families and villages as well.
