For nearly 20 years, Dr. Bradley Reynolds has been a member of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Department of Biology, Geology and Environmental Science faculty. It is virtually impossible to talk to him without asking about the nickname he bestowed upon himself: The “King of Environmental Science.”
Professor David Aborn started his bird banding project in 2003.
UTC students are teaming up with researchers from Cornell Lab of Ornithology to examine tree swallows in a nationwide study.
A 17-acre wetlands donated to UTC about two years ago is now an outdoor laboratory for students. But first on the agenda is trash pickup and, so far, about two tons have been hauled out, including TVs, tires, car parts and lots of plastic and glass bottles.
