Homogenization of northern U.S. Great Lakes forests due to land use
Human land use of forested regions has intensified worldwide in recent decades, threatening long-term sustainability.

Bend, Twist and Break: Beyond the Laboratory
Dr. Chris Muhlstein explains that when scientists study fracture surfaces from controlled experiments to understand the resulting shapes and features, they can use their understanding to deduce what happened when they were not around to see the material fail or break. Further they can predict what will have to a larger or smaller piece of material under stress. This process is how scientists and engineers translate a lab experiment into a design for an airplane, bridge or even a bike frame.
