Birds, Climate Change and Human Nature


Eric Anderson recently retired after 30 years of college teaching/researching at the Univ. of Wisconsin - Stevens Point. He earned numerous awards including the UW System Regents' Teaching Excellence Award.  An active researcher, Eric has authored 5 books and more than 26  scientific publications  on topics ranging from turtles to small mammals. In 2016 he     received the "Wisconsin Award" from the Wisconsin Chapter of the Wildlife Society " in recognition of exceptional contributions to the conservation of  Wisconsin wildlife".



Dr. Alan Haney, an Emeritus Professor of Forestry at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, and an ecologist with over 40 years of field experience. Alan and his colleagues     initiated research in the southern boreal ecosystem in 1976, focusing on how the forest communities respond to disturbances, including fire, wind and logging. This research    continues and has resulted in the compilation of the largest database in existence on birds of the Great Lakes Region and habitat relationships. Alan has authored or co-authored 7 books and over 50 scientific papers.


Eric & Alan will explore the landscape and biodiversity of the northern Midwest in the face of climate change and other human caused disturbances. Drawing upon their forty years of field research they will discuss how relationships between nesting birds and their habitats are affected by natural and manmade disturbances.


Funding for Science on Tap—Minocqua is provided by: a grant from the Brittingham Fund to the        University of Wisconsin-Madison, the UW-Madison Speakers Bureau - Office of University Relations, the College of Letters & Science and the College of Agricultural & Life Sciences.

Wonderful World of Wood


            From Africa to Wisconsin




Michael C. Wiemann, is a Wood Technologist and Botanist with the USDA Forest Service Forest Products Laboratory. At the turn of the 19th century, logging had proceeded across much of the eastern United States and demands for wood products were rising rapidly. In 1910, the Forest Products Laboratory (FPL) was established in Madison, Wisconsin, to find ways to conserve scarce timber resources.  For almost 100 years, our mission has been to use our Nation's wood resources wisely and efficiently, while at the same time keeping our forests healthy. Our research began with preserving railroad ties, and now we are venturing into      nanotechnology and finding ways that our research can contribute to mitigating the impacts of climate change.

The range of FPL wood research spans from fiber and chemical science to composites. Whether it's putting a self-adhesive, environmentally friendly stamp on an envelope or walking on a hardwood floor, FPL has in some way contributed to making those products and innovations.

"Throughout history, the unique characteristics and abundance of wood have made it a natural material for homes and other structures, furniture, tools, vehicles, and decorative objects.

Join us to learn more about the science of wood research and how it helped solve the Lindberg         kidnapping case.!
