Tarleton wins top award at international research conference
Jordan Giese, who recently finished his master’s degree in Tarleton’s Wildlife, Sustainability and Ecosystem Sciences program, received honors for the best oral presentation in the Animal Science Division at the 6th International Conference for Young Researchers. Jordan’s research on the environmental factors that limit the reproduction the White-tipped Dove will help the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department maintain stable populations of the bird. Jordan’s faculty mentor is Dr. Heather Mathewson. Jonathan Baker, an undergraduate student in the university’s Department of Animal Science and Veterinary Technology, also presented at the conference.
“We are extremely proud of Jordan and Jonathan for conducting the kind of quality research that merits international attention and honor,” said Dr. Barry Lambert, Associate Vice President for Research and Dean of Tarleton’s College of Graduate Studies. “They represented Tarleton well and had opportunities to connect with like-minded young scientists from several European countries during the conference.” Source
