The start of September marks a temporary change in leadership for the Biological Station. Professor and Director Knute Nadelhoffer begins a year-long sabbatical that will take him to Copenhagen, Denmark, among other places. UMBS alumna, Dr. Linda Greer, will serve as interim director through the end of August, 2017.

Greer is a Senior Scientist at Natural Resources Defense Council. She was profiled on our website in March when the LSA Dean Andrew Martin approved her appointment. In addition to her Interim Director duties, Greer will take on projects from Dean Martin in her role as Special Assistant to the Dean.
