Thanks all for the support! It will be a mixed flock joining in so the seminar will be presented in a way that people with different levels of education can understand what I am talking about! :-)

Best,
EV

Great News EV!! 

 

Just wanted to say your presentation was excellent and really addressed a very interesting suite of nutritional/ecological Psittacine topics! 

 

I did think of a couple questions but will follow up with you later… (and I didn’t know you had been a member of the Alaska (Amber) Bird Club in a previous life 😊!)

 

All the Best, Ron

Dear Elise,

  Congratulations on your great work and defense!

  I have been asked by people who tried to listen to your presentation but had audio problems. Is there a recording of it somewhere? Or do you have any publications summarizing this work?

   Thanks so much,

    LoraKim Joyner

Hi LoraKim,

Thank you so much! Were you able to get in to listen? I have heard that several people had issues getting in and when they did (took about 20 minutes apparently), many had various problems. My advisor was going to record it but was told by the Dean that he was not allowed to without getting permission from the entire audience. :-(  

I am possibly going to be giving the seminar split into two parts in the next month or so for the Schubot Center's Fall Seminar Series. Otherwise, I am thinking about doing the presentation again and recording it for those who wanted to listen in but could not for whatever reason.

I have 8 first author publications in the works but that won't be done for a while. What are your thoughts?

Thanks!
EV

 All those avenues for getting out your work sounds wonderful. Do keep us all informed so we can make sure to get the word out.

Thank you all so much for your kind words and interest! I will let you know when I get it recorded so that I can share it with you all! I am sorry to hear that several people had trouble accessing the meeting - please accept my apologies for that inconvenience. I can provide the link to my powerpoint presentation to anyone who wants to look at it in the meantime - please email me at evvo...@gmail.com so I don't take up any more of the group's time.

Best,
EV
