Congratulations to CBHR's own Dr. Alphus D. Wilson (Dan) who recently received notification from the international journal Sensors (Basel, Switzerland) that his 2009 review article Applications and Advances in Electronic-Nose Technologies published with Italian cooperator and coauthor Dr. Manuela Baietto was awarded 1st prize of "Sensors Best Paper Award 2013". This international review article summarizes research and applications of electronic aroma detection (EAD) technologies, primarily electronic-nose technologies, that have been developed and utilized within many industrial sectors (worldwide) over the past 30 years.
Congratulations to CBHR's own Dr. Mel Warren for being part of the team of co-authors receiving the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency 2011 Scientific and Technological Achievement Award Level III for “development of a novel indicator of ecosystem function: microbial acquisition of carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorous.” Their paper, Microbial enzyme activity, nutrient uptake and nutrient limitation in forested streams , was part of a trio of articles on which the award was based.
We welcome Dr. Jiaen Zhang, a visiting scholar from the South China Agricultural University, Guangzhou, China, who will be working this next year with host Dr. Ying Ouyang of our Starkville, MS staff and Dr. Prem Parajuli of the Mississippi State University Agricultural and Biological Engineering Department. Dr. Zhang's study areas include agricultural ecology, soil ecology and ecology of invasive plants and animals, green house gases emission in wetlands and global changes, ecological effects of acid rain, as well as ecosystem services and other related global enviromental issues.
CBHR's .Dr. Emile Gardiner has been appointed to succeed Dr. John Stanturf as the U.S. National Representative to the International Poplar Commission, a technical statutory body of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United States dedicated to the conservation and management of the Salicaceae family of trees, which includes poplars and willows.
Yazoo Darter researchers now have a new tool in their arsenal thanks to EATF team members Dr. Mel Warren and Ken Sterling (now with Utah State University). All known collections of fish within the range of the Yazoo Darter (Etheostoma raneyi), have been compiled into a single "published" map which can be interactively explored by researchers using free ArcReader software. The data can be viewed in a variety of different ways, with and without supporting layers such as ecological levels and hydrologic unit codes, and expanded habitat attributes are included where available. For more information contact Dr. Mel Warren.View all spotlights
