Biological Sciences Newsletter, Spring/Summer 2018
Welcome to the Biological Sciences newsletter for spring/summer 2018! Another academic year is in the books and it has been another terrific success. In this issue we highlight one of the department’s little-known gems, the Massey Herbarium, and a number of exciting initiatives launched by its new curator (page 2). We also have much to celebrate in the way of new grants in support of research, several of which you can read about on page 6. And we reflect on a lifetime of achievement and the remarkable career of University Distinguished Professor Emeritus, John Cairns, a pioneer in the fields of freshwater ecology and restoration biology, who passed away in November (page 3).
