Happenings at The School of Graduate Studies at the University of North Dakota

Wonder what grad students do in the summer? Part 1.

leave a comment »

The days are long, the weather is warm and sunny, and it seems like the natural thing to do in the summer is escape the city and take on some kind of travel adventure. Some grad students from UND are probably doing that right now. But one group is preparing to present their research at the 24th Annual Meeting of the Society for Conservation Biology. Their own travel adventure will take them to Edmonton this weekend, in Alberta, Canada. For these Earth System Science and Policy students, it’s an opportunity to meet and mix with peers and colleagues at their professional conference, discuss their research and learn what others in the field are also working on.

Seven students from the University of North Dakota  contributed to the presentation, “Threats to grassland conservation on the Northern Great Plains: agriculture and oil development”. It will be presented on Sunday at 2.30pm.  You can read the abstract here as well as see other presentations scheduled. ESSP faculty member, Dr. Rebecca Romsdahl, will join them and present her research at the poster session.

We wish you all a productive and enjoyable conference, and best of luck with the paper!
