Researchers discover potential solutions to New England roadside erosion
Erosion is a significant problem on highway embankments in New England. To mitigate erosion on the regions' highways, slopes are seeded with a grass-legume mixture that usually including red fescue, a grass preferred for its drought-tolerance and ability to thrive in acidic, infertile soil. View News Article (2011-01-03)

Coral reef decline-not just overfishing
