ESE INSTITUTE NEWSLETTER
Dr. Mitchell Irwin , Anthropology professor and Environmental Studies faculty member, conducts research in Madagascar each summer and often takes students with him, many of which are typically from Environmental Studies. This year, those students included Carla O’Leske, Laura Hardy, and Sam Rorie.
Dr. Irwin has been studying the eastern grey bamboo lemur (Hapalemur griseus). This lemur's diet is mostly bamboo that contains cyanide, which makes the lemur poisonous to humans. Next year, he will also study the brown lemur (Eulemur fulvus), who is a true frugivore - mostly eating ripe fruit.
This trip is open to advanced undergraduate students. The next trip will be in June 2017. Applications will be available in Spring.

GREEN LIVING COMMUNITY GOING TO MUSEUM OF SCIENCE AND INDUSTRY
The students on this floor have gone to the Museum of Science and Industry, learned about local food while enjoying pumpkin pie (Illinois is the largest producer of pumpkins in the US), and will be making their own air fresheners to keep their rooms smelling fresh all winter.
