Congratulations to the EECB students who won awards at the 2015 Graduate Student Association banquet: Carrie Branch (research grant), Josh Harrison (paper competition), Angela Hornsby (scholarship), Nick Pardikes (research grant), and Ali Urza (research grant). Another great showing by EECB!
Jenkins publishes second book
Dr. Steve Jenkins, professor emeritus in Biology and EECB, has released his second book, Tools for Critical Thinking in Biology, now available through Oxford University Press. This book follows the AAAS's recommendation of greater emphasis on critical thinking in core (nonmajors) courses, and uses examples from ecology to medicine to illustrate how the process of science works. Congratulations on this major accomplishment, Steve!
