NRES Seminar Series Update

Dr. Keith Gido presents "Groundwater Loss, Dams, and Drought:  Ratcheting Down Great Plains Fish Diversity" during the Spring 2015 semester.

Dr. Keith Gido discusses changes in Great Plains fish communities due to groundwater loss, dams, and drought.

The Spring 2015 NRES Seminar Series featured guest presentations by five K-State faculty and staff.  Special thanks to Lisa Harrington (Geography), Bruce Snead (Engineering Extension), Robert Atchison (K-State Forest Service), Saugata Datta (Geology), and Keith Gido (Biology) for their terrific talks.

The seminar series helps us achieve our student learning outcomes by expanding students broad-based knowledge of natural resources/environmental science and by illustrating the commonalities (and differences) in academic perspectives for studying and solving contemporary natural resources issues.

This series, which continues to grow in popularity since its inception in Spring 2014, is focused on undergraduate students and was established to help build a sense of community, an appreciation for the breadth and depth of issues and approaches, and awareness of current research in natural resources and environmental science fields.
