Nathan Schumaker of NHEERL’s Western Ecology Division (WED) was part of the research team for the project "Forecasting the Effects of Multiple, Interacting Stressors on At-Risk Populations," which was awarded the best U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) project in the area of Resource Conservation and Climate Change for 2011. The award was made at the 2011 Partners in Environmental Technology and Toxicology Symposium and Workshop in Washington, DC, that was sponsored by SERDP and the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program. The team leader, Josh Lawler of the School of Forest Resources at the University of Washington, accepted the award, and Dr. Schumaker received a certificate as a co-performer on this research. EPA’s role in this research was to develop the HexSim wildlife simulation model and to contribute to the three case studies being run by the project’s graduate students and postdoctoral fellow.
