Grads Present Research at 2014 Council of Educators in Landscape Architecture Annual Conference

Graduate students Sara Lamb and Yalcin Yildirim presented research at the 2014 Conference of Educators in Landscape Architecture (CELA) annual conference in Baltimore, Maryland this past April. CELA is an annual gathering of landscape architecture faculty consisting primarily of peer-reviewed conference presentations, but also including tours of important sites and keynote addresses by notable designers and educators. Lamb and Yildirim's presentation proposals were accepted following review by subject area experts. Sara Lamb, who is from Jackson Mississippi, presented preliminary findings of her thesis which explores the habitat implications of green roofs. Her presentation, "Examining the Role of Green Roofs as Supplemental Habitat for Avifauna Especially Migratory Species" included discussion of her methodology and preliminary findings. Yalcin Yildirim, who is originally from Ankara, Turkey presented "Soundscape Evaluation on Mississippi State University Campus" which investigates the effect of sound on students' landscape enjoyment. Both students anticipate completing their thesis research in the fall.
