    How to talk about the environment with people of either political leaning

    Mar 16, 2020

    It seems intuitive: A social media post or an ad about an environmental issue written in a way that appeals to conservative values will likely persuade conservatives.  But more often than not, messages about environmental issues are framed to resonate primarily with liberal-leaning individuals, said Kristin Hurst, a postdoctoral research associate with The Ohio State University College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES).

    Attracting more farmers to participate in water quality efforts

    Aug 28, 2019

    COLUMBUS, Ohio—Skepticism, more than anything else, is keeping farmers from changing how they apply fertilizer to their fields, according to a behavioral scientist at The Ohio State University.

    Many farmers question whether the conservation measures they are being asked to do, such as applying fertilizer underground rather than on the surfaces of fields, will actually improve water quality in Lake Erie, said Robyn Wilson, a professor in the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES).

    New songbird research featured

    Jun 19, 2019

    Research led by School of Environment and Natural Resources faculty member Christopher Tonra is featured in the June 19 Ohio State News release, "A songbird’s fate hinges on one fragile area." The news release highlights the findings of a study published by Tonra and colleagues in the journal The Condor: Ornithological Applications. Using geolocators the team tracked Prothonotary Warblers (a migratory songbird experiencing population decline) from six breeding sites in North America to determine where they go and what challenges they face during their annual migration.

    Read the full Ohio State News release to learn more about their findings here and the implications for bird and habitat conservation. 

    The Ohio State News release was authored by Jeff Grabmeier.

    Americans' beliefs about wildlife management are changing

    Apr 30, 2019

    Abundant and healthy wildlife populations are a cultural and ecological treasure in the United States. Over time, however, the decisions about how agencies manage wildlife have become highly contested: How should managers handle human-wildlife conflict, endangered species restoration and predator control?   A new 50-state study on America’s Wildlife Values — the largest and first of its kind — led by researchers at Colorado State University and The Ohio State University describes individuals’ values toward wildlife across states
