Faculty note: Forsythe, Draney publish with students
Natural and Applied Sciences faculty members Patrick Forsythe and Michael Draney have published a paper in the Journal of Arachnology with four UW-Green Bay undergraduate co-authors. The paper is the result of a Fall 2012 course called Ecological and Environmental Methods and Analysis, taught by Forsythe, with help from Draney, who served as project consultant for the course. Students Jennifer Hegnet, Ashley Johnson, Brooke Porter, and Clarissa Justmann contributed to the article, titled “Microhabitat distribution of Drapetisca alteranda, a tree trunk specialist sheet web weaver.” Draney also gave a talk with the same title and co-authors at the Annual Meeting of the American Arachnological Society at East Tennessee State University in July 2013. The two professors are continuing this research with a new class and new students this semester.
