Kudos to Ben Roe, a first-year graduate student with
SEFS, who was recently selected as the District 1 Student Representative for
the Society of American Foresters’ National Student Congress. Congratulations,
Kudos, as well, to everyone who helped organize the 2013 Sustaining Our World Lecture last Thursday, April 4, and to everyone who came out to hear Thomas Knittel’s great talk—despite some seriously unaccommodating weather! And though a recording hiccup may have cost us the final eight minutes of his talk and Q&A, we should have the bulk of it available online very soon.
Also, seminars are in high gear for the Spring 2013 Quarter, so check out the schedules for the Wildlife Science Seminar and the SEFS Graduate Seminar Series!
Professor Sarah Reichard recently contributed a chapter to the book Invasive Plant Ecology, set to come out this year (“Economic Analysis of the Invasive Plant Problem Associated with the Horticulture Industry in North America”). With Professor Kern Ewing, she also co-authored an article, “The University of Washington Botanic Garden and Restoration Ecology,” in the January 2013 issue of BG Journal, the journal of Botanic Gardens Conservation International.
On Friday, April 5, The Daily featured Professor Susan Bolton’s fog-catching research on the front page, “UW team harvests fog for national competition,” written by Amy Busch, a junior linguistics major at UW.
