Past Resident Distinguished Ecologists

While the Distinguished Ecologist Series brings internationally-known scientists to CSU, the series was expanded in 2007 to include one Resident Distinguished Ecologist and one GDPE Honor Alumna/Alumnus. These ecologists are nominated by GDPE faculty and students, and chosen by the GDPE Executive Committee.
