TERRA 613: Biofilm

"Biofilm" is an introduction to a relatively new field of medical research that investigates bacteria colonies known as biofilm.

TERRA 540: Feeding the Problem

Feeding the problem explores the historical and ecological impacts of the century-old artificial feeding program for elk in Western Wyoming. What began in 1912 as a gracious effort to save the Jackson Hole elk herd from harsh winters, shrinking habitat, and dwindling forage, has morphed into the largest wildlife feeding program in the United States. This biological experiment has created a petri dish for wildlife disease and is now one of the most contentious, fiercely debated issues in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
