A new paper is out from our research describing an uncommon bee in Mississippi. It is the first record of a specimen from this species displaying morphological characteristics of both males and females. And perhaps most unique about this finding is that the bee was found using sunflowers (mid-June 2016) planted for dove or other hunting the following fall.
Future Waterfowl Professionals Visit DU NHQ
Posted on 11/25/2009 by
Drs. Richard Kaminski, Brian Davis and a dozen Mississippi State University students engaged in a morning's discussion about the challenges facing waterfowl managers in North America.
Presentations by Dr. Scott Yaich, Ken Babcock, Jamie Brown, and Dale Humburg of DU’s staff in National Headquarters were used to initiate a great dialogue about the complexity of waterfowl conservation challenges, the range of solutions from science to policy needed to address them, and the diversity of new skills that will be required to solve them.
While the students, who ranged from upper level undergraduates to Ph.D. candidates were well grounded in basic biological education, they demonstrated interests that also included economics, business, and sociology. The future of waterfowl management will require these diverse skills to address emerging issues of waterfowl habitat loss, water quality, climate change, and public engagement in conservation issues. However, it was clear that the future of waterfowl management has a cadre of new professionals that will be up to the task.
