In August, Dr. Keith Johnson and Dr. Mark Norris took several students to the 100th Ecological Society of America meeting that was held here in Baltimore. The students presented posters of their research as part of the meeting and were able to attend talks by leading scientists and network with professionals in the field. Pictured here is one of the students, environmental science major Bethany Liberto, in front of her poster. Bethany worked with Dr. Norris to study "Oak forest characteristics and functioning along an urban-rural gradient."
