Climate change and the chaotic properties of dynamic systems. Sounds pretty imposing huh? Ok, how about instead of that, we talk a little bit about the game of billiards? That was the idea Professor of Mathematics Victor Donnay came up with several years ago as he tried to create a lesson in which he could […]

Not every dominant plant today will be dominant under climate change–but some may because of an advantage. Plants better at altering their anatomy and physiology can come out ahead under a wide range of environmental changes, according to a study by Bryn Mawr Assistant Professor of Biology Thomas Mozdzer. Mozdzer worked with ecologist Patrick Megonigal […]
