Agroborealis vol. 43 no. 1
This issue of Agroborealis looks at global climate change, food security, wildlife management and tourism, water resources and knowledge generation, and the potential for Alaskans in the peony market (both in the flower's demonstrated ornamental demand and its potential as a medicinal plant). Our professors went to Taiwan, China, and Namibia on their sabbaticals and returned with valuable insights on alleviating stormwater flooding and soil erosion, marketing and researching peonies, and developing and managing communal wildlife conservancies.
