Environmental Science & Ecology Professor Emeritus & Alum Publish Paper
Department of Environmental Science and Ecology Emeritus Professor Doug Wilcox and alum John Bateman published a peer-reviewed paper in Wetlands.
Dr. Douglas Wilcox (Professor Emeritus) and John Bateman (BS and MS in the Department of Environmental Science and Ecology) published a peer-reviewed article in the journal Wetlands that used vegetation sampling and aerial photointerpretation to describe how wetland topography coupled with lake-level history to determine the percent of a Lake Michigan wetland in sedge/grass meadow vegetation in years dating back to 1965. The results apply to many wetlands across the Great Lakes basin.
