Art meets science: UNT students and faculty combine their talents to find out what bird feathers reveal about air quality
DENTON (UNT), Texas—The University of North Texas Departments of Studio Art, Geography and the Environment, and Biological Sciences are exploring how birds can offer insight on air pollution.
The two-year study is one of the first to use bird feathers as biomonitors of soot in the air. Biomonitors allow scientists to determine both the amount and the potential effects of a substance accumulated in or on an organism. The UNT study is also among a growing number of scientific research projects to incorporate the arts and sciences.
