HECL Lab student John McGreevy recently presented at the University of Georgia's Symposium on Integrative Conservation. This event encourages graduate students and faculty from different disciplines to exchange ideas and help facilitate integrative approaches to future research. The presentation brings together McGreevy's research from Source Chaude, Haiti that began in 2012 and collaborative work with Elkins Voltaire (State University of Haiti) in 2016 as part of Mark Schuller’s (Northern Illinois University) NSF CAREER funded study in Haiti’s Southern Peninsula. A combination of in-depth interviews, participant observation, and remote sensing illuminate trends that question common narratives of environmental degradation in Haiti.
