Texas Tech Annual Biological Sciences Symposium – congrats to Joe

Last weekend was the Texas Tech Annual Biological Sciences Symposium. Julie, Ain and Joe all gave oral presentations. Joe won the Warren Ballard Award for best oral presentation in the Resource Management and Conservation session for his paper entitled “The ecology and potential value of bat coffee in biodiversity conservation in southwestern Sumatra”. Well done Joe! Maria and Julie both served as judges. It was a super event, and it was delightful to have Dr Richard Stevens return to Tech to give the plenary talk.
