Congratulations to GILLIAN BOWSER, research scientist in the Natural Resource Ecology Laboratory at Colorado State University, on the #ESA2017 COMMITMENT to HUMAN DIVERSITY in ECOLOGY AWARD

The Ecological Society of America’s Commitment to Human Diversity in Ecology Award recognizes long-standing contributions of an individual towards increasing the diversity of future ecologists through mentoring, teaching, or outreach.

ESA honors Dr. Bowser for her joyful and successful recruitment and retention of under-represented students to ecological research, to public service in support of the natural world, and to empowerment of women and minorities worldwide.

Click to learn more about Dr. Bowser's Pollinator Hotshots, opportunities for undergrads with her Rocky Mountain Sustainability and Science Network, and her work for gender equality internationally.

“Diversity and gender issues are really being challenged right now. It's important for ESA to honor the importance of gender and diversity in scientific research and leadership and, in particular, ecology as a discipline needs to reflect the diversity of the human spirit. We need to make sure everybody feels included in ecology and be aware of the internal and external biases that may exclude some segments of our society,” said Dr. Bowser.

“It's not as easy as throwing out a program and hoping somebody applies for it. We have to be mindful and inclusive, and try to understand the barriers to ecology viewed through the student perspective, that may highlight biases internal to ecological discipline itself.

Arctic SDI Pilot Demonstration: Pan-Arctic Map of Thermokarst(Public domain.) The USGS, Natural Resources Canada and the Open Geospatial Consortium invite you to the final demonstration of the OGC Arctic Spatial Data Pilot, Wednesday, March 15, 2017, 10am  - 12:30 pm (Eastern Time). The presentation will be held at the USGS Auditorium, Reston, VA and also via WebEx. The ArcticSDP, an 18 month study, was initiated to demonstrate the diversity, richness and value of providing geospatial data using international standards in support of spatial data infrastructures. It will show how they help stakeholders to gain new perspectives into social, economic, and environmental issues by providing an online network of resources that improves the sharing, use, and integration of information tied to geographic locations in North America, the Arctic, and around the world. The Pilot is organized by the OGC and is being sponsored by the Federal Geographic Data Committee and the USGS National Geospatial Program along with Natural Resources Canada Centre for Mapping and Earth Observation. The Pilot is being conducted in support of US and Canada domestic priorities around open standards and interoperability. The Arctic SDI is based on a memorandum of understanding involving the eight Arctic countries' national mapping agencies. Countries involved: Kingdom of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Sweden, Canada and the United States, The March 15 demonstration will feature an overview of Arctic SDI and USGS Alaska mapping priorities, by Kevin Gallagher, Associate Director, USGS Core Science Systems and the Canadian perspective from Prashant Shukle, Director General, Canada Centre for Mapping and Earth Observation, Natural Resources Canada. The Pilot demonstration will follow. Register Agenda & Logistics Pilot Background Arctic SDI Fact Sheet Caribou herd traveling on snow.
