Honors senior, Eva Scott, is majoring in nutrition science in Falk College and studying the interconnectedness of individual, communal and environmental health. Inspired by the work of scientists at the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry to develop a blight-tolerant line of the American chestnut tree, Scott studies uses of the chestnut as food. The return of American chestnut trees to the forests where they were once abundant would contribute to healthy forest ecosystems. And the nuts, which could be harvested with minimal environmental impact in many areas, can be used to produce a range of nutritious foods.
