How will maple products adapt to a changing climate? ESF's Dr. Diane Kuehn was one of the co-leads on a study that looked at maple producers, the changes they've seen to their businesses in the past few years, and the measures they're taking or planning to take to assist the resiliency of their trees.

Dr. Karin Limburg's discovery of the properties of otoliths--fish ear stones--may revolutionize our understanding of fish ecology and conservation. PhD student Ted Hermann has published a paper using the tree-like growth rings of otoliths to uncover the secret lives of fish in the Amazon basin. His work has pulled back the curtain on the mysteries of their migrations and shone new light on hidden portions of these species' life cycles. The new information could help to shape effective conservation agreements for economically important fish, and may even lead to improvements in dam siting so as to minimize disruption to wildlife.

ESF quietly serves a very important role in protecting water quality in the US. We house one of the few labs in the country capable of testing for a full range of algal toxins.

The lab performs testing for the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, the NYS Department of Health, the US Environmental Protection Agency and Environment Canada, and serves as one of NOAA's rapid-response labs. In 2015 alone, a research team headed by Dr. Gregory Boyer, professor of biochemistry and director of the ESF-based Great Lakes Research Consortium, analyzed over 2000 samples from across the state, including 750 that were found to be toxic.
