Northern Research Station
October Feature - Spooky Science
It may not be a dark and stormy night, but it is October, so the Northern Research Station is dishing up some of our spookiest science. Meet a scientist who works to help bats (an important and not spooky species) survive a fungal disease that strikes during hibernation; discover what terrifies bird parents, and what the consequences are for nestlings; and learn about a partnership that sought to solve the mystery of dying beech leaves.
