A team of researchers, co-advised by Dr. Pam Templer of Biology and Dr. Lucy Hutyra of Earth & Environment, were selected to receive the 2021 Campus Sustainability Research Award. This award is given by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) and “honors higher education institutions for successful implementation of projects that advance sustainability”. Among the researchers on this team were several alumni of the Templer Lab including Marissa Lee, Vivien Chen, and Ashley Bang. Wiley Hundertmark was another BU alum on this project and was supported by a BU Urban Climate Initiative grant.

The team’s paper is titled, “Influence of landscape management practices on urban greenhouse gas budgets”. You can read the paper here and learn more about the AASHE award here.
