U.S. Forest Service spotlights recent Howe (and company) research
In a recent news release, the U.S. Forest Service praised the work of Prof. Bob Howe, Director of UWGB Cofrin Center for Biodiversity, and his research collaborators. The release describes recently published results from the Nicolet National Bird Survey (NNBS) and parallel studies in other western Great Lakes national forests. For more than 25 years, an estimated 700 birders, including more than 150 UW-Green Bay students, staff, alumni and their families, have volunteered their time or worked as paid field researchers to inventory bird species for the NNBS. The most recent report will serve as a useful reference for forest managers identifying how species respond to forest management and what species need attention. Two former UWGB students, Erin Giese (now Cofrin Center for Biodiversity Data Manager) and Nicholas Walton, are among the co-authors. See the full news release here.
