Welcome to CALS Sustainability  | CALS Sustainability Task Force
The CALS Sustainability Task Force was established to explore how the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences could become more engaged in sustainable agriculture efforts, including highlighting what it has already accomplished, identifying additional opportunities to invest in research, teaching and extension and understanding how the college can lend its leadership to the national conversation on sustainable agriculture.

Orth Research Group

Orth Research Group
Our Theoretical Condensed Matter Research Group is based at the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Iowa State University, and embedded in the lively condensed matter research environment of Iowa State University and the Ames Laboratory. We investigate non-equilibrium dynamics of strongly correlated quantum materials and the effects of competing interactions and emergent order on the electronic properties of solids. To approach these questions we employ a combination of analytical and numerical techniques from field-theory and statistical mechanics.

Iowa Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program

Iowa Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program
The Iowa Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program (CREP) is a joint effort of the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship (IDALS) and the USDA Farm Service Agency in cooperation with local Soil and Water Conservation Districts that provides incentives to landowners to voluntarily restore wetlands targeted for water quality improvement in the heavily tile-drained regions of Iowa.

Laboratory of Marit Nilsen-Hamilton
A fundamental feature of life is the interaction between its component parts, without which life would not exist. Interaction occurs at all levels. At the molecular level, proteins and nucleic acids form complexes that create the structural and functional entity, which is the cell. Cells interact to form multicellular organisms (eukaryotes) or communities (prokaryotes). At both the molecular and cellular levels, interaction involves communication in addition to association. It is by way of these communications that most of the miracles of nature are achieved.

North Central Regional Aquaculture Center (NCRAC)

North Central Regional Aquaculture Center (NCRAC)
The North Central Regional Aquaculture Center (NCRAC) is one of the five Regional Aquaculture Centers established by Congress that are administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Cooperative State Research, Education, and Extension Service. NCRAC is an administrative unit that serves the twelve states in the North Central Region: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.
