You've probably never seen a bird like this before.
SNRE students have -- during a three-hour ornithology lab (EEB/NRE 433) where each student got to prepare their own study skin, the technical term for an animal that is prepared and stored for the purpose of scientific research.
Unlike taxidermied mounts, study skins are unposed and arranged in neat rows inside of airtight cabinets, usually inside of a natural history museum where they can stay for 200 years or more.
Back alleys, vacant lots and underutilized urban spaces hold great potential for fostering more sustainable cities, if they can be reimagined and transformed into multidimensional green infrastructure that simultaneously delivers environmental, social and economic benefits, says Joshua Newell, assistant professor at the School of Natural Resources and Environment.
SNRE’s Brad Cardinale is one of eight U-M scientists and engineers who have been elected as 2013 fellows of the American Association for Advancement of Science. Cardinale and the other seven chosen University of Michigan researchers were among 388 new fellows announced today by AAAS.
On what was scheduled to be the final day (it was not) of this year's United Nations climate change negotiations, I arrived at the Warsaw stadium ready for a day of negotiations and (hopefully) finalizing last minute deals. Unfortunately, I was not immediately so fortunate. First, only a limited number of non-governmental organization (NGO) delegates were allowed in the negotiating room, which was full when I arrived, so I had to wait in a line and was soon informed that it could take a while before I would be allowed entry.
SNRE is honoring Professor Bob Grese on being named the Theodore Roosevelt Professor of Ecosystem Management.
