The public is welcome to take Kathleen’s Global Change Biology course on-line! It’s free– no strings attached.
In this class, students take a series of self-guided field trips to ecosystems of their choice. We provide resources to help the students learn about their ecosystem. The students then use this knowledge to take a series of actions to protect the environment:
Actions to reduce plastic pollution on our coast
Actions to protect local species for our climate
Actions to remove nitrogen pollution from our water
Actions to restore invaded ecosystems
Actions to take going forward
You can access the course here:
You can take as much or as little of it as you’d like– it’s all up to you.
Kathleen taught this class last quarter for non-science majors at UCI. Since we’ve already put the effort into video recording the lectures and posting the activities, we might as well make it available to the public. Please keep in mind that you won’t be able to access the Discussion boards and Quizzes, as those are only available for registered students. Everything else is freely available.
We hope you like it!
David Bañuelas has just been named a Newkirk Center for Science & Society Community-based Research Fellow for the 2020-2021 year. He’ll be collaborating with Orange County Environmental Justice on a Community Science Organizing Case Study. Congratulations, David!
David is a PhD student in Treseder Lab. He’s studying the role of mycorrhizal fungi in ecosystem restoration.
Congratulations to Treseder Lab alum Dr. Linh Anh Cat and current Treseder/Huxman Lab PhD student Evelyn Valdez Ward!
After receiving a very strong pool of applicants this year, we are excited to announce our winners of our inaugural Best in Practice @ESA_SciComm Award!

Congratulations to David Bañuelas for being awarded a Ridge to Reef Graduate Fellowship from UCI! It will fund his stipend, tuition, and fees. David is a PhD student in the Treseder Lab, and he researches how to leverage mycorrhizal fungi in restoration work.
Congratulations to Evelyn Valdez-Ward for being awarded a UCI Latino Excellence and Achievement Award! She is the School of Biological Sciences recipient. Well-deserved, Evelyn! We’re proud of you.
The Treseder Lab at @UCIEEB donated their gloves, masks, and face shields to the UCI Medical Center. We are proud they are helping first responders!@wardofplants @DavidBanuelas @CharlotteAlster @DrTreseder #GivingTuesdayNow #AGUGivesBack
