Field position in the Byrne lab at Teakettle Experimental Forest, near Shaver Lake, CA. Applications due no later than March 6. See attached PDF for more details!
Allison (MS Summer, 2021) has accepted a position with Jodi McGraw Consulting in Santa Cruz Co., CA. Congrats, Allison!
A HUGE congratulations to Sam Kelly and Cessair McKinney, who completed their senior capstone in the Byrne lab during the 2020-21 Academic Year. These two senior ESM students were such a pleasure to work with - their capstone expanded into a presentation, then a manuscript, which was just accepted to the journal Ecological Restoration. We'll post an update once the article is in press. Congratulations, Cessair and Sam!
We haven't updated the lab website in awhile. Here's what we have been up to:
Allison will have a public talk for her thesis research this Friday at 10 am PST. Send an email to Kerry Byrne (email@example.com) if you'd like the link to attend. All are welcome!
Congratulations to Sam Kelly and Cessair McKinney, who gave an oral presentation on the research that they completed as part of their capstone experience at HSU. The title of their talk was "Innovation in Restoration: Estimating Seed Counts Using a Photography App." See their abstract here! We're so proud of their hard work this year!
We're so pleased to share that first year graduate student Sean Stewart has been selected as the recipient of the 2021 Humboldt State University Alistair and Judith McCrone Graduate Fellowship Award. This award recognizes one outstanding graduate student each year to acknowledge their potential and encourage their continued achievement in their graduate program. Congrats, Sean!
The Byrne lab is hiring! See the attached job announcement for a forest restoration field technician at Teakettle Experimental Forest in the Southern Sierra. Check back in March for additional summer research technician position(s).
Big congratulations to Sarah, who was recently awarded a fellowship to study differences in phenology among California poppies in a common garden study. We're so proud of you, Sarah!
Congratulations to Allison, who just found out her talk was accepted to the 2021 Society for Range Management annual meetings [virtual edition]. Allison's talk is titled "Drought alters soil seed bank composition within a sagebrush community: decreasing native forb seeds and increasing invasive grass seeds."
