UGA ecologists contribute to report on the state of river restoration
Top river-systems experts, including two UGA ecologists, report on the state of efforts to restore U.S. streams and rivers in today's issue of the journal Science. About three years ago, researchers from eight universities and river conservation groups formed a partnership to improve the �science and practice of river restoration.� The group began by compiling the first comprehensive database on nationwide river restoration projects. Judy Meyer, UGA Distinguished Research Professor of Ecology, and Elizabeth Sudduth, a master's degree graduate from the UGA Institute of Ecology now at Duke University , led the effort to collect and analyze data for the Southeast.

AMAZING STUDENT: Angela Aifah
UGA was not senior Angela Aifah's first choice. Her parents picked the university for her because her brother had attended, but now she holds a fondness for her experience here. In her time at the university, she has become a leader in the Model United Nations program and the Model African Union program. She has been a member of the UGA Black Affairs Council since she was a freshman, and she worked as an intern for District Attorney Ken Maudlin. After graduation, she wants to take a year off and then go to law school.
