Scully, Malcolm G Title: Taking the pulse of the Kalamazoo Source:
Chronicle of Higher Education 47, no. 38 (Jun 1, 2001): p. B16
Scully discusses the work by Jay C. Means, Charles F. Ides, and their
colleagues at Western Michigan University to reclaim the Kalamazoo
River. They are monitoring how contaminants flow through the river's
watershed and are using sophisticated genetic techniques to study
the effects of the contaminants on the organisms--including humans--that
live in and around the river.
