Under this activity, I will work with a panel of scientists appointed by the Secretary General of the United Nations to monitor the achievement of global goals of sustainable development and the lessons that can be drawn for policies worldwide
The comparative study is to see how American historical archaeologists have studied religious sites and sacred sites.
It is to investigate how the study, research questions, and interpretations of religious sites and sacred sites has changed over the last century.
As a cell biologist and biochemist, Dr. Emr’s research has focused on uncovering the molecular mechanisms responsible for the biogenesis of specialized compartments, called organelles, which are present inside all cells. These organelles perform key biochemical functions that keep cells alive.
Growing season temperatures are projected to
increase in corn production areas. In previous work,
we have identified responses and possible
adaptations to increasing temperature that minimize
negative impacts of high temperatures on corn yields.
We will extend this work to identify adaptation
opportunities and improve yield predictions for
projected changes in future corn production climates.
My mission is to work with beekeepers in New York State to understand the factors affecting honey bee health, with a focus on pathogens, pesticides, and management practices. I provide extension and education through the NYS Beekeeper Tech Team, the Cornell Master Beekeeper Program, the Pollinator Network Website, and a variety of workshops. The overall goal of beekeeping extension is to improve honey bee colony health and the profitability of the beekeeping industry.
The website provides knowledge about poverty risk for the individual, and for individuals in other categories of risk. This permits individuals to know their risk in comparison to others. The website has been viewed 758,000 times as of February 12, 2017
My goal is to increase honey bee health by educating beekeepers, gardeners, the public, government, and pesticide applicators. I use a variety of avenues and platforms to educate and inform these individuals including the following:
• Advising particular groups, such as the NYS Pollinator Task Force Team and the Apiary Industry Advisory Committee
• Creating a brand new pollinator website for anyone to access: www.pollinator.entomology.cornell.edu
In November 2015, the two co-leaders for Cornell Garden-Based Learning (CGBL), Marcia Eames-Sheavly and Lori Brewer, hosted a three-day partnership convening at Light on the Hill, a retreat center in Van Etten, NY; we received a CALS diversity grant to offset the cost of this retreat. We invited representatives of the New York State Food Banks, Cornell Cooperative Extension educators, and community members and campus-based professionals with important perspectives.
New York sod producers are tasked with meeting high consumer expectations of pest and pathogen-free turf. Current options for pest control in sod are limited, and sod producers have voiced a need for improved alternative pest control options. Entomopathogenic nematodes (EPNs) have shown promise in biological control of turf pests, and there are many species available commercially. Commercial EPNs, however, exhibit poor persistence in the field, require multiple applications, and are typically too costly for use in sod production.
Drilling the Marcellus shale for natural gas extraction consists of many disparate actions by multiple mining companies, including drilling process, leasing and contracts, spills and violations and water withdrawals. Assembling this data in one model can help make transparent the collective or aggregate impacts (positive and negative) of this industry operating in rural Pennsylvania. Many impacts are felt north of the border in New York State.
