Three named Research Development Fellows
Yi Qi, Jess Corman, and Andrew Little have selected to participate in the 2018-’19 Research Development Fellows Program.

The RDFP is designed to help jumpstart research programs by providing access to information, resources, and practical experiences faculty can leverage to maximize their competitiveness for external grant funding.

The 2018-2019 RDFP cohort is the most diverse and multi-disciplinary group to date, involving 21 faculty members representing the College of Architecture, College of Arts and Sciences, College of Education and Human Sciences, College of Engineering, College of Journalism and Mass Communications, and the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources, according to Bob Wilhelm, vice chancellor for Research and Economic Development.

Both Qi, a spatial scientist, and Little, a wildlife ecologist, joined SNR in July. Corman, a limnologist and aquatic ecologist, joined SNR in January 2017.

'Three-Minute Outdoorsman returns' released
“The Three-Minute Outdoorsman returns,” a compilation of Robert Zink’s short essays, was released by University of Nebraska Press this month.

The book includes over 70 three-minute essays in which Zink, a conservation biologist and animal ecologist with the School of Natural Resources, responds to nature-driven queries that have yet to cross a readers’ mind, such as can a sheep’s horns be too big? or Was the Labrador duck a hybrid? Other essays explore land, aquatic animals, and humanity’s relationship with nature, thus making this book of wild science an essential for any outdoors person.

The book is available in the Nebraska Maps and More Store in the first-floor lobby of Hardin Hall, or online through UNL Marketplace or Nebraska Press.
