Biodiversity in the Suburbs
Clinical Associate Professor Michael Rubbo, PhD, and students Angelica Arocho ’22, Environmental Science, and Morgan Kelly ’20, MS in Environmental Science, presented their research entitled “Biodiversity in the Suburbs: The Pocantico River Watershed as a Hotspot for Natural Resources” at the 2019 Student and Faculty Research Days.
Their work included a habitat assessment and mammal survey of the watershed, and they used the data to identify priority areas for conservation.
Keep up with the work being done by Pace students, faculty and volunteers in the organic vegetable garden on Pace’s Pleasantville campus.
