Released today, Dr. Rooney and colleagues Dr. Robinson and Dr. Petrone from the University of Waterloo have a comment piece in Nature Climate Change detailing their framework for integrating reclamation planning for megaprojects at the landscape scale with future climate change projections. Reconciling reclamation plans with climate change is necessary to give us our best hope at achieving self-sustaining reclamation targets.
Canada Research Chair in Physical Hydrology and professor at the University of Calgary Dr. Masaki Hayashi will be visiting the Rooney Lab on October 27th and will be presenting as part of the Department of Biology 2015 Seminar Series his talk titled Eco-hydrology of prairie wetlands and management implications: synthesis of a 50 year study.
Congratulations to Dr. Rooney who will join the board of IAGLR (International Association for Great Lakes Research). Dr. Rooney is honoured to serve the IAGLR membership and hopes to see you all in Guelph next June.
Congratulations today to Dr. Rooney, who received a University of Waterloo Outstanding Performance Award. The award was created by the university to reward faculty members for outstanding contributions to scholarship and teaching.
Our latest paper, published in the journal Water Research, is available for free download for a limited time. The paper combines a biophysical comparison of natural wetlands and storm water management facilities with a comparison of their perceived social values.
