We have just begun the new academic year and we are already getting orientation meetings together for the next set of incoming students.
You’re about to be told one more time that you’re America’s most valuable natural resource. Have you seen what they do to valuable, natural resources? Have you seen a strip mine? Have you seen a clear-cut in a forest? Have you seen a polluted river? Don’t ever let them call you a valuable natural resource! They’re gonna strip mine your soul! They’re gonna clear-cut your best thoughts for the sake of profit, unless you learn to resist, ‘cause the profit system follows the path of least resistance, and following the path of least resistance is what makes the river crooked!
Congratulations to the latest member of the PhD club, Dr. Cathy Viverette! Today, she became the 14th graduate student to graduate from the lab and the very first doctoral student. Take a break, relax, and then let’s get to those revisions! ;-).
Previous Dyerlab member, Anna Tucker, just got her thesis work accepted for publication in Auk. Be on the lookout for the following:
Opportunistic conspecific brood parasitism in a box-nesting population of Prothonotary Warblers (Protonotaria citrea)
We have added a new member to our lab, Jane Remfert. She is an incoming ILS PhD Student who is going to work on pollen movement in dogwood. Very exciting!
It looks like I will be moving into the position of Assistant Director for the Center for Environmental Studies this year! Should be fun!
I just received verification that Jane Remfert has decided to join the Dyer lab in the fall as a new PhD student! AND she is interested in working on dogwood! Welcome!
