The collection of articles, essays and reflections published in this year’s issue share the insights, opinions and experiences of undergraduate and graduate students involved in biodiversity conservation research at universities worldwide, including Texas A&M and its Applied Biodiversity Science Program, said Dr. Jason Martina, program coordinator.

The current issues bring into focus conservation topics such as the human-wildlife interactions of people and elephants in Myanmar and Botswana,

the dynamics of environmental history and wildlife disease on the Central Asian Steppe.

Other articles offer a reflection on students’ graduate research experiences, domestically and internationally, and the issues women face in conservation as both students and scientists.
