Asks the Science Journal for Kids, on our behalf. This amazing outreach resource just completed the transformation of the thesis work of Meghan Pawlowski (Lind), first published in the peer-reviewed journal PLoS ONE. Using the high school AP Environmental Science curriculum as their guide, this team translated our tech talk into an accessible format ready for teachers and students! Here is the link to our paper, check it out!
Christine and Casey represent the Crow Lab in the Manoa Christmas parade by marching with their Be Ready Manoa disaster preparedness group.
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.
Students will contribute to building a soil carbon knowledge hub, database, and visualization tool in development for the USGS Powell Center Working Group, What lies below?
Hawaii Public Radio short on our recent papers about the role healthy soils can play in mitigating climate change.
Two papers (in Global Change Biology and Annual Reviews of Ecology, Evolution, and Systematics) with a Crow Lab link are out this week demonstrating the critical role of soil organic matter in climate change mitigation and building resilience in managed ecosystems.
Beautiful red clay soil, collected for Fundamentals of Soil Science greenhouse experiment, thanks to Dan and Jonathan.
At least, Hannah loves it! Thanks go to Daniel Richardson who led the crew, and to all who helped. Especially, the to Lyon crew who assisted with backhoes and machetes.
