K-State receives more than $780,000 to fund graduate students studying ecology, evolution, genomics
Date:10/20/2009

students from groups traditionally underrepresented in these research areas and fosters the development of skills to effectively communicate biological science issues to the public.

The training program also will use the resources of K-State's Ecological Genomics Institute, Institute for Grassland Studies and the Konza Prairie Long Term Ecological Research program to develop an interdisciplinary breadth and depth of scientific expertise that is required of the next generation to meet the environmental challenges of a rapidly changing planet, in addition to linking complementary disciplines of ecology, evolution and genomics to existing areas of strength within the Division of Biology.

Principal investigators on the award include Johnson; Herman; Anthony Joern, professor of community ecology; and Brett Sandercock, associate professor of avian ecology. Twelve additional faculty are involved as mentors for the new students. Student applications for fall 2010 admission are due Dec. 15.
