Austin Peay State University (APSU) 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – When the corpse flower blooms, it emits an intense, foul odor. “We’re used to flowers with sweet smells that attract bees and butterflies,” Dr. Carol Baskauf, Austin Peay State University (APSU) biology professor, said.

“The nickname for this plant is ‘corpse flower’ because it smells like rotting, dead meat. It stinks terribly,” stated Baskauf.

APSU biology grad students continue to excel in their research

October 28, 2016

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Since about 1950, the small-scale darter—a tiny fish that lives in tributaries of the Cumberland River—has existed in relative obscurity. Few scientists have heard of the darter or checked to see if the fish is in danger of disappearing.

But for the last year and a half, Joshua Stonecipher, a graduate student with the Austin Peay State University Center of Excellence for Field Biology, has waded into local streams, trying to get an accurate estimate of the darter’s population size.

APSU Field Biology graduate student Joshua Stonecipher has received three grants to study the darter fish that lives in tributaries of the Cumberland River.

APSU professor Stefan Woltmann featured in National Geographic article on Gulf of Mexico oil spill

May 28, 2015

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Five years after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, which flooded nearly five million barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico in 2010, scientists are still struggling to unravel the mysteries of a natural habitat deeply impacted by the largest oil spill in U.S. waters.

National Geographic recently published the first part of a five-part series marking the incident’s fifth anniversary. In the first installment, titled “Is Gulf Oil Spill’s Damage Over or Still Unfolding?,” the magazine probed the minds of scientists and researchers devoting their time to discovering the way millions of gallons of oil has changed, or will continue to change, the Gulf of Mexico and the creatures that call that landscape home.
