Summer 2018

We were saddened about the passing of our colleague, Dr. Brian Maurer, who played an instrumental role in obtaining the funding for our current project on the roles of American kestrels in fruit-production regions. Meeting with Brian was always a mixed bag; he was unfailingly friendly and hospitable but, on the flip side, he would find every flaw in your proposal or paper or plan for analysis and back to the drawing board it was! I also laughingly remember Brian's advice about child-rearing..."divide and conquer" which, he mentioned, becomes much more difficult once the offspring outnumber the parents. We will miss Brian.
