News and Announcements
High profile EECB research
EECB Professor Franco Biondi recently co-authored a detailed analysis of how ecosystems recover from drought, which was published in the journal Nature. In this important paper, the authors show that as droughts increase in frequency with global warming, many ecosystems will no longer be able to recover fully.
Biology Dept. honors EECB scholars
The UNR Biology Dept. recently awarded merit-based scholarships to several EECB students, including: Su'ad Yoon (Brussard Scholarship), Angela Pitera and Jessica Reimche (Jerry and Betty Wilson Scholarships), and Heather Slinn (Diana Hadley-Lynch Scholarship). Congratulations!
