Stony Brook University President Samuel L. Stanley Jr. Represents SUNY as Panelist at 2018 Higher Education Climate Leadership Summit Feb. 5 & 6 in Arizona

Tue, 2018-02-06 16:00
With climate change atop the global agenda and one of the top concerns of municipalities across the country, according to the just published findings of the 2017 Menino Survey of Mayors, universities are expanding their roles in taking meaningful action on addressing the problem. In fact, Stony Brook University in New York, has already achieved national and international recognition for its comprehensive academic and campus-wide sustainability initiatives, which date back to 1967, when the Environmental Defense Fund, which advocates using science, economics, and law to tackle environmental problems, was co-founded by a Stony Brook professor. It is more than appropriate, therefore, that State University of New York (SUNY) Chancellor Kristina Johnson has tapped Stony Brook President Samuel L. Stanley Jr., to represent the SUNY system as a keynote speaker at the Second Nature 2018 Higher Education Climate Leadership Summit Feb. 5 and 6 in Tempe, AZ.

A Survival Lesson from Bats - Eating Variety Keeps Species Multiplying

Wed, 2018-01-17 13:48
Diet is an important factor influencing the survival and evolution of all species. Many studies have shown that when species evolve from being a predator or insectivore to being a vegetarian, the rate at which new species arise increases. But a new study published in Ecology Letters reveals that omnivorous New World noctilionoid bats, those species with diets including both plant and animal materials, produce more generations in the long run than specialized vegetarian or insectivorous species.
