Eleven new Ph.D. students will join the Interfaces of Global Change IGEP this fall.  Their fields of study include freshwater ecology, soil biogeochemistry, environmental education, macroevolutionary dynamics, and more. We look forward to their positive contributions, engaging questions, and new ideas.  Welcome!
