After closely studying wandering salamanders for four years, a doctoral candidate at the University of South Florida discovered the amphibians have mastered “parachuting” down the world’s tallest trees. Christian Brown’s study, published in Current Biology, is the first to reveal aerial behaviors in the species.
Three University of South Florida students — Siegrid Pregartner, Mitchell Harrah, and Frank Nunez — won first and second place and Judge's Choice awards in the ninth annual Florida Blue Health Innovation Challenge. Florida Blue Health Care, one of the largest health care providers in Florida, awarded a total of $23,500 to Florida college students at the April 29 competition.
