DOINews: "Hands-on Discovery in Portage Valley" - AK CSC Affiliates' Research Featured by Alaska Public Media
Douglas Causey, Professor of Biological Sciences at the University of Alaska Anchorage, and Maio Nishkian, Alaska Climate Science Center fellow, were recently featured in a radio interview by Alaska Public Media. The story, "Hands-on Discovery in Portage Valley", describes a research project that Causey is currently working on that involves "catching juvenile fish in the Portage area. The idea is to find out what kinds of fish are living there, and how those fish are reacting to factors like wintering and climate change."
Causey engages his undergraduate students, such as Nishkian, in collecting information for the project.
