    Message from the Chair

    Greetings from the Department of Biological Sciences! Since July 2013, I have been serving as department chair, but I am no stranger to Michigan Tech. I have spent 17 years in the School of Forest Resources and Environmental Science before coming to biology.
    It’s been an exciting time in the department with grants, awards, events, and publications. But, more importantly, it has been a year of success for our colleagues and friends—a quick glance at the stories in this newsletter will tell you that.

    On the cover: Our lab experience includes getting hands-on in the field.
