In Astoria, a lizard frequently finds its way into our ground-level apartment, coming in through the adjacent garage. It's been relocated to various places several yards away, and within a week or so, it's back. We're here twice a year for a total of about four to five months each year, and at least twice have found skin it has shed. Do you have any idea what it is and what it is looking for inside the house?
Researchers are chipping away at solving a biological mystery on the central Oregon coast: the existence of an isolated population of a small but fierce forest predator that makes its home in the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area.
New Oregon State University research shows that juvenile northern red-legged frogs that have experienced climate-related stress as tadpoles are less likely to move on land, putting their survival at risk.
Low-cost, extreme draining of Fall Creek Reservoir aided downstream migration of juvenile chinook salmon – and led to the gradual disappearance of two species of predatory invasive fish in the artificial lake.
West Coast forest landowners are expected to adapt to climate change by gradually switching from Douglas-fir to other types of trees such as hardwoods and ponderosa pine, according to a new Oregon State University study.
While it can be challenging to find the balance, there is much that we can do to meet our objectives for wildlife while controlling weeds and reducing fuels. Recent research at OSU can help us make informed decisions about some of the tradeoffs.
