Prof. Nancy Langston is recruiting a MS student in Energy and Environmental Policy (Dept of Social Sciences, Michigan Tech) for a collaborative NSF-funded project on climate change, animal migrations, and the history of wildlife management. Funding covers tuition and stipend for 2 years.
Project description: Woodland caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou), coaster brook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis), and common loons (Gavia immer), migratory species that breed in the boreal north, have been the focus of decades of restoration efforts. Yet all three species remain at risk in northern landscapes. The project seeks to understand what we can learn from past efforts at understanding and managing migratory species, with the ultimate goal of contributing to more sustainable strategies for the Anthropocene. http://www.nancylangston.net/climate-ghosts.html
