Wesleyan created the College of the Environment with a belief in the resilience of the human spirit and a desire to develop a long-term vision of human and ecosystem health.
coexist is the blog of our COE (College of the Environment) community–a vibrant group of students, faculty, alumni, and others interested in exploring our natural world and our place in it.
Our mission, simply stated: to change the world.
Schistosomiasis (a disease caused by parasitic worms) affects 200 to 300 million people worldwide. On December 3, the COE welcomed evolutionary biologist Dr. Armand Kuris of University of California, Santa Barbara to campus, for a discussion about his research on the disease in Kenya and Senegal. Dr. Kuris’s work has shown that transmission control through predation on snail intermediate hosts may be necessary to achieve elimination of schistosomiasis in Africa.
