Early Signs of Environmental Damage and Recovery
S. Marshall Adams
Measurable changes in wildlife species can be early predictors of unwanted environmental and health effects, as well as indicators of ecological recovery in streams such as Oak Ridge creeks.
East Fork Poplar Creek: Signs of Ecological Recovery
Technical Highlights--Removing ink from waste newspapers; chemistry lab on a chip; radiation-hardened memory chip; fast-growing grass developed as biofuel feedstock; liquid-metal car engine conceived at ORNL
