Blueberries are one of the few fruit crops native to North America. Wild blueberries were utilized by Native Americans for making medicines, dyes, and flavorings, as well as for direct consumption. Once a small-scale crop produced within limited regions, blueberries are now grown throughout the United States and the rest of the world.

Authors: Tom Barnes, Ric Bessin, Jeffrey Bewley, Roy Burris, Tim Coolong, Lee Meyer, Joe Taraba, Paul Vincelli, George Wagner

Nearly all climate science experts agree that global warming is occurring and that it is caused primarily by human activity.

The future impacts of global warming are difficult to predict, but the changes caused by greenhouse gases are expected to increasingly affect Kentucky agriculture.

Snakes: Information for Kentucky Homeowners

5/1/1999 (minor revision)
Authors: Tom Barnes

Of the 33 snake species found in Kentucky, only four are poisonous. These are the Northern copperhead, Western cottonmouth (water moccasin), timber rattlesnake, and pygmy rattlesnake. While venomous snakes should be respected and approached with caution, most snakes a homeowner encounters in an urban environment are harmless and beneficial because they eat mice and other rodents. This publication seeks to dispel much of the misinformation about snakes and to help homeowners effectively reduce opportunities for accidental encounters with these legless reptiles.

Eastern Bluebirds Nesting Structure Design and Placement

5/1/1999 (minor revision)
Authors: Tom Barnes

Colonial settlers called the eastern bluebird the harbinger of spring or "blue robin" because of its chestnut orange breast and iridescent blue back and tail. One of Kentucky's common resident passerine birds, this strikingly elegant bird is admired most for its beauty, gentle disposition, family devotion, and delightful call. It is also easily attracted to homeand farm surroundings when nesting structures are correctly constructed and well placed.
