Research in Iowa State’s Department of Ecology, Evolution and Organismal Biology (EEOB) has been garnering a lot of attention — and support — from the National Science Foundation (NSF) this past year. In 2016, eight faculty received grants from the NSF to support their exciting research in evolutionary biology.
Dr. Kirk Moloney recently presented a keynote talk at the First IUFRO Landscape Ecology Latin-American Congress/Second IALE Latin-American Congress in Temuco, Chile. His talk was entitled ‘Landscape Ecology and the management of exotic species.’
Dr. Brian Wilsey recently presented a keynote talk at the Society of Ecological Restoration Europe 2016 Conference in Freising, Germany. His talk was entitled ‘Ecology of novel and native grassland ecosystems: Implications for restoration.’
EEOB graduate student, Daniela Flores, received the Outstanding Presentation Award for the Biological Sciences during the Graduate Minority Assistantship Program (GMAP) annual symposium.
Dr. Barbara Pleasants was honored by Science Bound for inspiring, mentoring, and directing ethnically and racially diverse Iowa youth towards discovery and success in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields.
