  • Drexel Students Study Environment on Gunnery Range

    May 30, 2012

    A military combat training base may seem like an unlikely venue for environmental research, but that’s precisely where Drexel biologist Dr. Walter Bien has set up shop. Beyond the runways, control towers and air-to-ground weaponry of the Warren Grove Gunnery Range in Burlington County, NJ, there are over 9000 acres of pristine wilderness, uninhabited by humans. The expansive buffer zone is the perfect location to study plants and animals in their natural habitat—a project Bien has been part of for more than a decade.

  • African Monkey's DNA Points to Climate Change, Drexel Researchers Find

    May 29, 2012

    Drexel biologists Dr. Gail Hearn and Dr. Shaya Honarvar, along with a team of nine other researchers, have been studying a rare and endangered monkey whose DNA could provide insight into the effects of climate change on rainforest-adapted species. The Mandrillus leucophaeus, or drill monkey, is a large-bodied primate that dwells in the African equatorial rainforest. The study found that the species, which is already threatened by poachers and habitat destruction, might not be able to survive the imminent atmospheric warm-up.

  • El Niño Weather and Climate Change Threaten Survival of Baby Leatherback Sea Turtles

    May 24, 2012

    When leatherback turtle hatchlings dig out of their nests buried in the sandy Playa Grande beach in northwest Costa Rica, they enter a world filled with dangers. This critically endangered species faces threats that include egg poaching and human fishing practices. Now, Drexel University researchers have found that the climate conditions at the nesting beach affect the early survival of turtle eggs and hatchlings. They predict, based on projections from multiple models, that egg and hatchling survival will drop by half in the next 100 years as a result of global climate change.
