Conferences near and far
Ryan Johnson (Environmental Studies graduate student ) and I are heading to MEDECOS XIII in Olmue, Chile where Ryan will present a poster on his thesis research, "Responses of native California sage scrub plants to experimental coastal and interior meteorological conditions". MEDECOS is the Mediterranean Ecosystems conference that takes place only once every three years.
Later this month, Ignacio Vera (Biology undergraduate student) will present results from his independent study " Comparing Seed Viability and Harvest Consistency Across Sites and Years for the Federally Endangered Plant Eriastrum densifolium spp. sanctorum" at the Society for Advancement of Chicano and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) annual conference in Los Angeles. Iggy will be one of 13 scholars from the Southern California Ecosystems Research Program (SCERP) participating at the conference. SCERP is an #NSFfunded scholars program that supports research, training and scholarly activities for undergraduates in environmental biology.
