2018 Research Tour

Friday, November 30, 2018
1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Duke Forest Maintenance Shop
207 Lemur Ln.
Durham, NC

It’s that time of year to bring the community to the Duke Forest to learn about what goes on behind-the-scenes. Researchers come from all over Duke and the world to study in “Duke’s largest laboratory”. To highlight some of their incredible research, we are presenting our 2018 Research Tour next Friday November 30th.

We will visit three research sites–two in the Durham Division close to campus and one in the Blackwood Division in Orange County, which is usually off-limits to the public. All the projects examine aspects of ecological change in response to environmental conditions. Each presenter will also highlight how their research connects with climate change. The following projects will be presented: 

  1. The “5-Pines Study” – Ram Oren, Nicholas Professor of Earth System Science (Principal Investigator and Presenter)
  2. Genotype – Environment Interactions –  Kathleen Donohue, Professor of Biology (Principal Investigator), Brandie Quarles (Ph.D. Student, Presenter) , Michelle D’Aguillo, (Ph.D. Student and Presenter)
  3. Biodiversity and Global Change – Jim Clark, Nicholas Professor of Global Environmental Change (Principal Investigator), Jordan Luongo, Clark Lab Manager (Presenter)

Meeting details will be sent to all registrants two days prior.
