About This Blog
“They walk among the stately trees. They know the secrets of the breeze.” – Bob Dylan
1) To serve as a teaching tool, particularly to augment courses in Biodiversity & Conservation (EES-28), Ecology (EES-152), and Wetland Ecology (EES-386 & EES-395). Content related to these courses is tagged with course number, and can be found in the “Categories” drop down menu to the right.
2) To discuss emerging scientific research and teaching experiences in a manner accessible to interested non-specialists. This includes occasional posts related to my research, or the research of my students, and descriptions of educational activities in the classroom, laboratory, and field.
3) To encourage and share a passion for ecology and natural history with anyone willing to listen! Related to this objective, I occasionally share thoughts and stories that are more personal – typically these are focused on things that I do in my spare time to more deeply connect with nature and the outdoors.
Occasional guest posts by students do not necessarily reflect my own opinions.
