August 29, 2013 – From Iceland to the Beltline

Thursday, 29 August 2013 | Science

Highway roadsidesas place! And not just any place but habitat, buffer, and potential! Sound crazy? Normally don’t give roadsides a second thought? Am excited to share an interview with Joslyn Mink about her research on WI highways, native plants, restoration, and how to think about the 100,000+ miles of road — and thereby roadside — in the state.

And my other guest studies insect food webs in Iceland. Jamin Dreyer shares stories of “the living smoke” and what the rest of us can learn from flies that hatch in the water and die on the land.

Can’t imagine how these two early career scientists’ work can be related? Tune in and turn it up to find out!

Permanent streaming audio will go here. And here it is!
