First CU Engage research project examines campus experience for students of color

Rather than just absorbing research by others, a group of CU-Boulder undergraduates embarked on their own research-based inquiry into what motivates students of color to fully participate in campus activities – or to hold back.

Warm winters mean more pine beetles, tree damage

Some populations of mountain pine beetles now produce two generations of tree-killing offspring annually, dramatically increasing the potential for bugs to kill lodgepole and ponderosa pine trees, CU-Boulder researchers have found.

Because of the extra annual generation of beetles, there could be up to 60 times as many beetles attacking trees in any given year, the study found. And in response to warmer temperatures at high elevations, pine beetles also are better able to survive and attack trees that haven't previously developed defenses.
