UND Professor Joins First National Nature Assessment

Dr. Bob Newman will join the inaugural National Nature Assessment (NNA). Announced by the White House's Office of Science and Technology Policy, the NNA is the first comprehensive evaluation of the United States' biodiversity and natural ecosystems. Newman will co-author a chapter of the United States Global Change Research Program's report, collaborating with experts nationwide to deliver an evidence-based overview of America's wildlife and ecosystems, evaluate emerging trends, and identify effective strategies to mitigate the challenges posed by the nation's rapidly changing natural landscape. "The idea with the National Nature Assessment is that we're trying to figure out what we've got before it's gone," said Newman.
