First, a quick note about the difference between "venomous" and "poisonous". Venom is injected via a bite or sting. Poisons are ingested or absorbed. Therefore snakes, bees, scorpions, spiders, etc. are venomous, and toads, mushrooms, and household chemicals are poisonous. Remember, venom = active, poison = passive.
An article published recently in the peer-reviewed journal Science of the Total Environment found the University of Arizona to be the most productive university in the United States for top-cited publications pertaining to the field of "environmental science"—and the fourth most productive institution in this regard worldwide.
