Stanford's Woods Institute awards new round of Environmental Venture Projects
Date:5/27/2009

EVP Symposium

To encourage campus-wide participation in the EVP program, the Woods Institute will host the first Environmental Venture Projects Symposium on Oct. 7 from 1 to 6 p.m. at the Arrillaga Alumni Center. The event will feature faculty updates on several recent EVP projects and a panel discussion on how to recruit and work successfully in interdisciplinary teams.

"We warmly encourage those to attend who want to learn more about the program and about how to submit a successful proposal," Kennedy said. "We are especially keen on engaging researchers from outside the usual environmental sciences who can bring to bear fresh perspectives on environmental issues."

The EVP Symposium will include time for faculty to pitch research ideas to their colleagues, followed by a networking reception and poster session. For more information on this free event, contact Paula Wetzel at pwetzel@stanford.edu.

Here are the four projects awarded EVP grants this year:

An Interdisciplinary Approach to Understanding the Role of Anthropogenic Fire in the Desert Grasslands of Australia: Intentional burning is increasingly being recognized as an important force in shaping ecosystems over time. In Australia, the impact of anthropogenic fire has been particularly significant, with indigenous burning hypothesized to have radically altered the continent's biogeography. This EVP will investigate temporal and spatial variability in fire, resource management and habitat modification in Australia's Western Desert. Examining how these practices have changed may better inform models of fire management in arid regions throughout the world.

Principal Investigator (PI): Douglas Bird (Anthropology). Co-PIs: Rebecca Bird and James Holland Jones (Anthropology), Page Chamberlain (Environmental Earth System Science), Katharine Maher (Geological and Environmental Sciences
