Are rivers big streams or flowing lakes?

New research published in the journal Biogeochemistry focuses on how mid-sized river nutrient cycling works. Is it more like a big stream or a flowing lake? Dr. AJ Reisinger, assistant professor of urban soil and water quality in the UF/IFAS Soil and Water Sciences Department, wanted to find out. He and colleagues spent four summers collecting data from 15

Florida-grown coffee? How UF scientists are using AI to serve up the possibilities

Most of the world’s coffee is grown in tropical regions. However, a changing climate could allow coffee to grow farther north — for example, in Florida. To understand how that might work, scientists with the University of Florida are already growing coffee plants at the UF/IFAS Plant Science Research and Education Unit, about 30 minutes south of the main UF campus in Gainesville. This research could one day produce a morning cup of joe

World Seagrass Day: Seagrasses and Carbon

By Alexandra L. Bijak, Ph.D. Student UF/IFAS Soil and Water Sciences Department World Seagrass Day (March 1st) raises awareness of seagrasses and the ecosystem functions and services they provide. Seagrasses are flowering marine plants that inhabit coastlines worldwide, except for in Antarctica. They evolved from land plants approximately 100 million years ago. Seagrasses have adapted to living and reproducing in the marine environment:
