Peacock and collaborators receive Carson Award
Congratulations to EECB faculty member Mary Peacock, who was awarded the 2014 Rachel Carson Award for Scientific Excellence along with the Lahontan National Fish Hatchery Complex and the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe. Their reintroduction program for Lahontan cutthroat trout has resulted in natural reproduction of this iconic subspecies for the first time in the Tahoe and Truckee Basins in over 70 years. Learn more about this successful conservation initiative.
EECB members in The Auk special feature
Congrats to EECB student Dan Gibson, professor Dr. Jim Sedinger, and alumnus Dr. Erik Blomberg, whose new paper received a special feature by The Auk. This is a useful contribution toward understanding the degree to which researchers inadvertently affect their study organisms in the field (Gibson et al., 2015).
