For students who work in the University of Georgia’s Deer Research Laboratory, the concept of face coverings is not new.
In the lower Missouri River, a fish with prehistoric ties has learned to live hard—and, too often, die young.
Now, a new study by a University of Georgia professor details the ways pallid sturgeon have adapted to less-than-ideal conditions. Fish that live where their habitat has substantially changed have responded by growing faster and reaching sexual maturity at an earlier age, resulting in a shortened lifespan.
Though perhaps not ideal, this typically long-lived fish has found a way to persist while facing extinction due to widespread changes in its river system.
Keeping up with changes in Georgia’s property tax laws is a full-time job, and a new book shows the fruits of these efforts.

Allowing interstate travel would provide many benefits for timber industry
Logging trucks crisscross roads across the southeastern United States every day, bringing more than 200 million tons of timber from forests to mills every year.
Researchers find many travelers are looking for an ‘experience’
When contemplating a destination, some travelers look to how the experience might translate to social media when making their decision, according to a new study by University of Georgia researchers.
They found that the motivations behind where travelers choose to stay while on a trip can go beyond customer service or cleanliness into what they can post online.
As humans stayed home, early research hints at increased animal movement
In late March, as communities began to issue shelter-in-place orders, it seemed animals came out of hiding.
Across the globe, reports began to surface of wildlife taking to the newly deserted streets. Even in Georgia, people reported foxes in shrubbery, yips of coyotes or, in one case at the University of Georgia, deer walking across campus. But were animals relishing in fewer humans around, or were we just noticing them more?
'Little Foresters Adventures' teaches kids, parents about fun in forestry
Growing up, Dana Bloome didn’t understand why the other kids at school couldn’t look at trees and see what she saw.
USDA grant calls for review of new ‘shared stewardship’ land management strategy
When former Gov. Sonny Purdue came to Athens last fall, the first item on his agenda wasn’t the University of Georgia football game (although it was a close second).
