The University of Arizona has a commitment to supporting, collaborating and working with the vibrant communities that make up Southern Arizona, especially when it comes to the stewardship of our environment.

Arizona still in a mega-drought

Arizona’s in the midst of perhaps the worst drought in 1,200 years, regardless of the blessings of a relatively normal winter, according to study published in the peer-reviewed journal Science.

Salt, Verde watersheds may prove less vulnerable to drought

Arizona’s already hot and dry. So if it gets hotter and drier – we’re toast. Right? Well, not necessarily – leastwise, not on the Salt and Verde watersheds.

Trees remember everything—even the fall of the roman empire

The timeline of the failure of the Roman state is fairly well established and accepted, thanks to the Romans' love of writing. The circumstances contributing to its disintegration, however, have long been debated among historians and archaeologists. There is no consensus about the relative role of internal failures, such as escalating corruption and civil war, versus external factors, such as the barbarian invasions and pandemics.
