Dan Coleman is a PhD student at the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque. His research interests focus on molecular microbial ecology, especially microbial diversity and productivity in extreme environments such as those found in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. He is part of a project that is conducting a microbial inventory of the thermal features of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. The overall objective of the project is to survey the microbial phylogenetic and physiological diversity of one hundred sites within Yellowstone National Park. Dan was also a 2008 Sevilleta LTER REU Student!! and we are always excited to have him come down and visit!

Talks are followed by a potluck - so bring something to share if you'd like to stay and mingle with Dr. Fawcett and students.
Driving Directions to the Station: The UNM Sevilleta Field Station is located - on South I-25, Exit 169 (50 min. south of ABQ, 20 min. north of Socorro) After you exit the interstate, you will turn WEST at the stop sign. Follow the paved road all the way up and you'll see a small brown sign on the right - that directs you to the UNM Sevilleta Field Station. (As you pass from a paved to gravel road, the Fish & Wildlife Visitor Center should be on your Left - if it is not - you are on the wrong road). SERF Conference Room is located in the Sevilleta Education and Research Facility. This building is the first Large building you will see after you pass from the paved to gravel road.
Hope to see you there!
