For Immediate Release:
Science teachers can hear the latest at UW-Green Bay ForumGREEN BAY-Middle- and high school teachers are invited to hear about some of the latest research on interactions between humans and animals in the region at the Northeastern Wisconsin (NEW) Science Forum from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday, March 6 in the 1965 Room of University Union at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, 2420 Nicolet Dr.
Prof. Robert Howe, director of the UW-Green Bay Cofrin Center for Biodiversity, will present the program, "The Ecological Interaction Between Humans and Birds in the Great Lakes Basin." Forum organizers note that while much published research has explored interactions between plants and animals, little attention has been devoted to population-level interactions involving humans and other species.
Howe, whose advanced degrees are from UW-Madison, has conducted extensive research in the Great Lakes region since joining the UW-Green Bay faculty in 1984. In 2001 he was a co-principal investigator on a three-year, $6 million grant from the Environmental Protection Agency to develop and test environmental indicators for the coastal and near-shore regions of the Great Lakes. The UW-Green Bay portion of the project specifically looked at birds and amphibians.
The forum is free, but participants are asked to register by calling (920) 465-2052 or by e-mailing to firstname.lastname@example.org. Refreshments will be served starting at 4 p.m. and the program is scheduled for 4:30 p.m.
NEW Science Forum originated at UW-Green Bay in the mid-l980s as a way to bring middle- and high school science teachers together to participate in a science presentation and to network with teachers from other schools.
