ARPA-E encourages outstanding scientists and engineers from different organizations, scientific disciplines, and technology sectors to form project teams for a planned program focused on the development of technologies that measure structural and functional properties of plant roots and soils that lead to the development of improved root traits. Specifically, ARPA-E is interested in traits that...
A research team led by Win Watson, professor of zoology in the department of biological sciences, has shown that using ventless traps — those with blocked escape vents — helps biologists improve their understanding of lobster populations, the size range of lobsters on the ocean bottom, and how long it takes for a trap to saturate, or reach its maximum capacity of lobsters.
These data are crucial...
