Accomplishments

Jackie Schnurr, Professor of Biology and Environmental Science, attended the Ecological Society of America meeting in Portland, Oregon in early August. She presented a poster called “Invasion is not a monolith: invasion effects by Vincetoxicum rossicum (Kleopow) Barbar. differ based on background environment” with her coauthors Jeremy Biazzo and Lindsey Milbrath from the USDA.

Jackie Schnurr, Professor of Biology and Environmental Science, presented a poster “The impacts of a perennial, summer growing invasive species, pale swallowwort (Vincetoxicum rossicum (Kleopow) Barbar.), on spring ephemeral populations” with coauthors Jeromy Biazzo and Lindsey Milbrath from the USDA-ARS at Cornell, at the Ecological Society of America meetings in Montreal.

Jackie Schnurr, professor of biology and environmental science, had another multiple-author paper based on research conducted by students in her Ecology and Evolution course (BIOL 119). The paper is titled “Correlates of Bird Collisions with Buildings across Three North American Countries” and was published in Conservation Biology with J.A. Elmore as primary author.

Jackie Schnurr, professor of biology and environmental science, served as a panelist for the National Science Foundation’s Graduate Research Fellowship Program, reviewing grant applications for ecology.

Jackie Schnurr, professor of biology and environmental science — along with 40 coauthors from colleges and universities across North America — published a paper in Conservation Biology called “Correlates of Bird Collisions with Buildings across Three North American Countries.” The data that were included in the paper were collected by students in the fall 2012 Ecology and Evolution course (BIOL 119), and this is the second publication resulting from that work.

Jackie Schnurr, professor of biology and environmental science, served as a graduate research fellowship program reviewer for the National Science Foundation, reviewing 30 applications in the “Ecology” section.

Jackie Schnurr, professor of biology and environmental science, served as a graduate research fellowship program reviewer for the National Science Foundation, reviewing 28 applications in the ecology section.

Jackie Schnurr, Professor of Biology and Environmental Science, along with her colleagues Dylan Parry at SUNY ESF, Andrea Davalos at SUNY Cortland, and Carrie Brown-Lima at Cornell University, have been awarded a $450,000 3-year grant from the NYS Department of Transportation to study the Field Evaluation of Hypena opulenta for Biological Control of Invasive Pale and Black Swallow-Worts in New York State.

Jackie Schnurr, Professor of Biology and Environmental Science published an article, “Linkages among canopy tree neighborhoods, small mammal herbivores and herbaceous communities in temperate forests,” was published in the Journal of Vegetation Science. Charles D. Canham, 2015 Wells College Scholar-in-Residence, was a coauthor.
