UW PiE and Berry Center open Jackson Ecology Library

Dr. Steve Jackson's numerous contributions to the Program in Ecology (PiE) were recognized last Friday when PiE and Berry Center named their Ecology library in his honor.  

The Jackson Ecology Library, located on the 2nd floor of the Berry Center, is intended to be a shared resource for graduate and undergradaute students who study ecology and biodiversity.  

Each semester PiE and the Berry Center will each add one new book, selected by students, to this collection.  Students can borrow books that are not readily available on campus libraries.

Acknowledging this recognition as "a great honor", Dr. Jackson thanked the faculty, staff and students for their hard work that has resulted in the growth of PIE over the past 10 years. Dr. Jackson is confident that great future lies ahead of PiE and believes that "more of our students graduate and get placed in good postdocs and positions, more papers published with the PiE address, and more people aware of what a good thing we’ve got here... we’re developing a national and international reputation as a top graduate program".

More information about Dr. Jackson's research accomplishments can be found on the Quaternary Plant Ecology Laboratory (QPEL) website.

Donations to the Jackson Ecology Library in the form of books pertinent to ecology students are welcome.  Please contact Ms. Brenna Wanous for further details.
