Stable Isotope Theory and Methods (Biol 540) Spring 2021

Tu, Th 10:35 – 11:50

Course Description: Students will learn to design, interpret, and critically evaluate the use of stable isotopic tools. Specifically, we will focus on terminology and notation, sources of variation, models of isotope composition, and key applications of stable isotope techniques. Topics address the isotopic composition of plants, animals, soils, water, food webs, advanced techniques, plus any topics of interest to students.

The course is offered online this year without the lab section. We will accommodate students enrolled this spring in future lab instruction.

Call for abstracts for the 11th Northwest Climate Conference

 11th Northwest Climate Conference

Abstracts are due Friday, November 27

The 11th Northwest Climate Conference will take place online on April 6-8, 2021.

Special Sessions Abstract Submission

Oral Presentation Abstract Submission

Poster Abstract Submission

The Program Committee welcomes submissions on a range of themes and topics related to climate science, impacts, adaptation and management decisions. We welcome presentations on work that links science, decision makers and communities.

The Northwest Climate Conference (NWCC) is committed to building equity and diversity in climate science, policy, and adaptation practice and supporting equitable climate adaptation outcomes. Abstracts related to these topics are strongly encouraged. If you know of organizations involved in this work, please share the call for abstracts with those organizations.

In addition to soliciting presentations that specifically address climate justice and equitable climate outcomes, all submitting authors are asked to consider how their work connects to issues of diversity and equity, and how the conference can better support equity and diversity in climate science, policy, and adaptation practice.

The Program Committee will group abstracts primarily by theme and secondarily by topic. Topics include drought, wildfire, extreme events, coastal flooding, human and ecosystem health and resiliency planning. Topics of broad interest that are approachable for a wide audience are strongly encouraged. Visit the Northwest Climate Conference website for more information about themes and topics.

The Northwest Climate Conference provides a unique opportunity to learn from and connect with a diverse community of experts fostering a more climate-resilient Northwest. The event brings together practitioners, scientists, tribal communities and decision makers to share knowledge, ideas and best practices related to climate change science, impacts and adaptation in the Pacific Northwest.

Brown Bag Webinar: Water for Nature: University of Arizona Resources Research Center

Date: Thursday, October 22, 2020

Time: 12:00 – 1:15 p.m.

Location: Webinar Only

Speaker: Kristen Wolfe, Coordinator, Sustainable Water Network

Kristen Wolfe will be presenting Water for Nature, a talk focusing on environmental water, the forgotten/ignored stakeholder in water policy, management, and law. Leaving water for nature out of water laws and management has had dire consequences for our rivers, streams, and springs. Climate change and unsustainable growth are accelerating river depletion. It is time to find ways to allow for water for nature. Human uses depend on healthy, flowing rivers.
