Faculty David Tallmon had a paper accepted in the journal The Auk showing that we have a genetically distinct subspecies of spruce grouse, found only on the islands of Southeast Alaska. Tallmon was invited to teach at a workshop in May in Bhutan to build the capacity of Bhutan’s biologists to undertake long-term, non-invasive genetic monitoring of their biodiversity.
The UAS Marine Biology club is going to Sitka June 11- 13 for the BioBlitz and still has spots available for interested students. Students can contact Sherry Tamone, David Tallmon, or Carolyn Bergstrom for more information.
