I'm happy to announce that I have become an Associate Editor for The Condor: Ornithological Applications. I'm looking forward to getting to peek behind the curtain and better understand the editorial process, and will do my best to shepherd papers through the system quickly!
I'm getting excited for the upcoming IUCN World Conservation Congress in Honolulu! Opening ceremonies are on Thursday, September 1. Follow me @KristenDybala and #IUCN2016 for updates!
This month, I was honored to be invited to speak at this year's Watershed Week training for local teachers involved in the STRAW program! It was fun to meet some of the many educators who are dedicated to habitat restoration with their students, and to share with them some of the early results of our global meta-analysis of carbon sequestration rates in riparian zones. Spoiler alert: There is a lot of carbon in those trees!
Today I'm also celebrating the overhaul of this website! I'm hoping to regularly post news and updates about my adventures in conservation research, mostly to remind myself to stop and reflect every once in a while. I was never much of a journal-keeper, but here's to a new beginning!
