U of I Researchers Chase Balls of Moss Called ‘Glacier Mice’ Across Alaska Glacier

Glacier moss balls — nicknamed “glacier mice” — are globs of dirt and moss found on glaciers and important habitat for invertebrates to colonize. Department of Geological Sciences’s Tim Bartholomaus and Department of Fish and Wildlife Sciences’s Sophie Gilbert teamed up with Washington State University to study these rolling stones on Root Glacier in Alaska. They found the mice move an average of 2.5 centimeters a day in a herd-like fashion, but their movement doesn’t coincide with prevailing winds, downslope or sun angle. See the story NPR wrote about the project.

  • Virus Dashed Multiple Career Opportunities, by Stella Davidson: As I sat on my bed in my parents’ home in Boise, I fielded a traumatic WhatsApp call from my best friend, who was studying in Lyon, France, for the school year.
  • Phone Calls of Concern Recalled, by Stephanie Lazaro: In early March, as news was surfacing that universities outside Idaho were going to online classes and in some cases shutting down because of the coronavirus, parents of University of Idaho students started becoming concerned.
  • Virus Dashed Dreams of Germany, but New Doors Opened, by Anteia McCollum: The coronavirus dashed my hopes of going on an exciting Idaho National Guard adventure to Germany, but I ended up doing something even more worthwhile — helping hungry Idahoans fill their stomachs.
  • Three Adults at Home; Two Without Incomes Because of Outbreak, by Julia Moore: Before the coronavirus surfaced, I was covering my University of Idaho living expenses with a job that I loved and obtained creative satisfaction from – eyelash extension artist.

U of I Researchers Estimate Photosynthetic Carbon Uptake Efficiency from Evergreen Forests

Andrew Maguire, Jan Eitel, Ryan Long, Lee Vierling, Jyoti Jennewein, William Weygint and colleagues studied how efficiently evergreen forests use variable light conditions to power photosynthetic carbon uptake. They found that accounting for changes in leaf shading and sun exposure along with fluorescence — light reemitted by chlorophyll — led to 70-80% accurate estimates of sub-canopy partitioning of photosynthetic efficiency. The findings from this field-based study in Idaho and Alaska will help researchers estimate photosynthetic carbon uptake by forests from satellite-based measurements of fluorescence. This leaf-scale information is needed to understand ecosystem responses to changing climate conditions.

The study, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, found the amount of area burned across Africa declined by 18.5% between 2002 and 2016, and this reduction was likely driven by an increase in plant-available moisture and not solely changes in human behavior, as previous studies have found.
