Can we do more to develop data analysis skills in undergraduate conservation students? The CBC’s scientists along with colleagues from around the country developed teaching materials to promote data analysis skills in college students and assessed performance before and after their use. Students improved their skills in a single semester while also learning about ecological principles! Read all about it here

CBC researcher Dr. Mark Weckel’s paper "Urban Conservation: the northeastern coyote as a flagship species" uses the natural history of this wild canid as a lens by which to approach and understand the issues and challenges that face the emerging field of urban conservation. It was recently chosen as the Editor’s Choice for Landscape and Urban Planning's 150th volume. Read it here
