Ecology Short Course for Graduate Students

The Jornada Basin LTER hosts a “Desert Ecology Short Course” each summer for graduate students and visiting scientists. The objective of the course is to orient attendees on the history of research at the Jornada, the science currently being conducted, and emerging scientific questions that need to be researched in the future. The short course is a great opportunity for interactions between students and the PIs.

The next Desert Ecology Short Course is tentatively scheduled June 28th-June 30th. Contact Dr. Niall Hanan ( for more information
