During the week of August 6th 2017, Dr. James E. Moore (Chair and Associate Professor of Biology) is attending the Annual Ecological Society of America (ESA) meeting in Portland, Oregon. At this conference he is presenting data on community succession titled “Effect of Disturbance Intensity and Frequency on Old-Field Community Diversity, Composition and Functional Groups.”
In addition to presenting his research, Dr. Moore also serves on the executive council for ESA.
