Engaging the Public in Science- Benefits and Pitfalls on the Path to Stewardship
Engagement, the two-way, mutually-beneficial interaction between the university and other communities, is consistent with MSU's land grant mission. This LRES seminar begins with a panel presentation by 4 LRES faculty with experience in engaging the public, and opens up to a discussion of what has worked or failed in the experience of the audience, as a way to better understand how to successfully engage the public with the goal of environmental stewardship.
Host: Dr. Cathy Zabinski
Dr. Clain Jones
Professor, Ph.D. 1998, Montana State University; M.S. 1988, University of Washington; B.S. 1986, Cornell University. Developing educational resources and materials on soil fertility and nutrient management for county agents, crop advisers, producers and other agricultural professionals; current primary research emphasis on soil fertility in cropping systems, nutrient management in conservation tillage systems, and soil testing.
Dr. Bruce Maxwell
Professor; Ph.D. 1990, Oregon State University; M.S. 1984, B.S. 1977, Montana State University. Agroecology and weed biology research on the design and development of sustainable production systems and adaptive management strategies for annual and perennial weeds in crop and natural ecosystems. Includes modeling and identifying measures of invasive plant population dynamics and impacts, crop-weed competition, herbicide resistance evolution and economic thresholds of weeds.
Dr. Perry Miller
Professor, Ph.D. 1992, University of Minnesota; M.S. 1989, University of Guelph; B.S. 1984, University of Saskatchewan. Development of diversified cropping systems under water-limited conditions to maintain or improve soil quality, economic returns and sustainable practices. Resource-use-efficiency in no-till and organic systems, spring and winter pulse crop agronomy, annual pea forage and green manure systems, and farming strategies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Dr. Adam Sigler
Research Associate, Ph.D. 2020, Montana State University; M.S. 2008, Montana State University; B.S. 2001, Utah State University. Interdisciplinary water resource research focused on addressing questions for improving water resource management with sound science.
