Faculty Kevin Soland, Lucy Kerhoulas, Nick Kerhoulas, and Jason Teraoka, Foresty and Wildlife

Kevin Soland (MS student in Forestry), Lucy Kerhoulas (Forestry), Nick Kerhoulas (Wildlife), and Jason Teraoka (Redwood National Park) published a paper in Forest Ecology and Management: “Second-growth redwood forest responses to restoration treatments.” (https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0378112721004588)

Student Frank Shaughnessy, Susannah Ferson, Adam Frimodig, Daniel Barton, Mathew Hurst, Jeffrey Black, Biological Sciences

Students and faculty from several departments have been studying the effects that grazing by brant geese have on a widespread marine plant, eelgrass, which provides numerous ecosystem services within estuaries. Using an experimental approach, they found that brant enable greater productivity and sexual reproduction of eelgrass, therefore potentially contributing to ecosystem resilience.

Faculty Jasper Oshun, Geology

Jasper won a 3-year National Science Foundation GEOPATHS Award ($145,352). This education award links faculty and students at SDSU, CSUS, and HSU and is titled ‘Collaborative Research: Developing a diverse hydrology workforce through an undergraduate hydrological research experience in a coastal California watershed’. The award provides opportunities for 10 rising sophomores per year to participate in course and summer immersion focused on interdisciplinary water science, hydrology field techniques, and the challenges of water management. A primary goal is to build community across 3 CSU campuses and train a diverse cohort of hydrologists to inform water management in California.

Faculty Jill Beckmann, Rosemary Sherriff, Lucy Kerhoulas, Jeff Kane, Geography

Jill Beckmann (MS 2019), Rosemary Sherriff, Lucy Kerhoulas and Jeff Kane published a new paper on conifer encroachment on oak woodland drought resistance in Forest Ecology and Management: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.foreco.2021.119543
