Here is the link to our paper, check it out!

Congratulations Hannah and Genelle!

Hannah and Genelle successfully defended their research proposals last week – congratulations! Genelle’s research is titled “Community-based management of mangrove forests in Pemba East Africa”.  Hannah is working “Towards a Hawaii soil health index: Indicator development for soil health and carbon sequestration potential and application of farmer perspectives”.  Both projects are based in social-ecological principles of natural resource management, we look forward to the results of their hard work.
