Congratulations to the recipients of the AY 2015-16 Faculty Excellence Awards!
Congratulations Dr. Buma - Recognition 2016-17
Dr. Brian Buma, Assistant Professor of Forest Ecosystem Ecology, was recently recognized for his research documenting new evidence of significant changes in our coastal temperate rainforest linked to climate change. This research was published in an article entitled "Emerging climate-driven disturbance processes: Widespread mortality associated with snow-to-rain transitions across 10 degrees of latitude and half the range of a climate-threatened conifer" for the journal Global Change Biology.
This recent publication and research prompted a story in the November 26 Alaska Dispatch News, bringing widespread public attention in Alaska to this cutting edge research that has national and international interest.
