USD Well Represented at WSN

Message

The Annual meeting of the Western Society of Naturalists (WSN) was held in San Diego, November 11-14, 2010. WSN is a scientific society with a focus on ecology, evolution, natural history, and marine biology. This conference is most important and respected annual meeting in ecological science to be held on the Pacific coast, and is attended by many of the biggest names in the field from around the globe.

This year, more USD faculty and students attended the conference than at any time in at least three decades. Importantly, most of these faculty and students were presenting their research findings, in doing so not only exchanging ideas and information with colleagues, but also raising the scientific profile of USD in the scientific community. Talks and poster presentations ranged from studies of the effects of ocean acidification on crab larvae to sediment movement near coral reefs and how to better manage terrestrial invasive species. In total, there were presentations from four faculty members, five graduate students, and seven undergraduates at this yearʼs meeting.

The students and faculty did a tremendous job of representing USD, and it was great to see our logo so ubiquitously displayed.
