Alumni & Friends
Welcome to the School of Natural Resources Alumni and Friends page! While the School itself is young, formed in 2003, the departments that came together to be a part of the School have a rich history and tradition in the University dating back over 100 years.
Whether you are a graduate from one of our programs or someone interested in natural resources, we greatly appreciate your interest and support as we strive to be an international leader in natural resources education and provide natural resources information to those both in Nebraska and around the world.
From drilling into the soil and groundwater below the surface, to conserving and sustaining the flora and fauna on the surface, to studying the climatological aspects of the atmosphere around us, to humans interacting with it all, we really do encompass “From Earth to Sky and Everything in Between.”

It darts through the near-total darkness of a chilly night in the Nebraska Panhandle, drawn across the short-grass prairie by the wafting stench of a skunk.

If you could produce the same amount of food with fewer resources, wouldn't you? That is the goal of new research led by Justin Gibson, a PhD student in the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's School of Natural Resources and a Robert B. Daugherty Water for Food Global Institute student support grantee. The research recently was published in the Journal of Hydrology and Earth System Sciences. UNL hydrogeophysicst and DWFI Faculty Fellow Trenton Franz is also involved with the project.
It may have replaced the dwindling eastern wolf atop many food chains, but the eastern coyote lacks the chops to become the big-game hunter of an ecosystem, new research led by a University of Nebraska-Lincoln ecologist shows. But a study from John Benson and colleagues provides evidence that the eastern coyote hunts moose and other large prey far less frequently than does the eastern wolf - instead preferring to attack smaller game or scavenge human leftovers.
