Wisconsin Ecology 22nd Annual Fall Symposium



Dr. Susan P. Harrison

We are pleased to host Sharon Collinge, Ph.D., a professor in the Environmental Studies Program at the University of Colorado-Boulder, as keynote speaker at the 25th Annual Wisconsin Ecology Fall Symposium. The Symposium will take place on Monday, October 14 and Tuesday, October 15 in the Great Hall of the Memorial Union.

Dr. Collinge's research focuses on how ecological process of individual organisms, populations, and communities respond to changes in landscape structure. She integrates theories and techniques of multiple disciplines, including conservation biology, restoration ecology, landscape ecology, and disease ecology to assess human-induced ecological consequences to natural systems. Dr. Collinge's research team centers primarily on a long-term, large-scale restoration experiment in a California vernal pool ecosystem. Dr. Collinge's first lecture, "Community engagement for sustainability in Boulder, Colorado," will focus on how she gets citizens, including children, involved with ecological research. Her second lecture, "The magical world of California vernal pools: Lessons from a long-term restoration experiment," will explore the vernal pool field experiment and restoration project she leads at the Travis Air Force Base in California. Read more about Dr. Collinge and her research.
