Our webmaster expands his horizons
Alan D. Thornhill, Ph.D., who initially conceived this website and continues to oversee it and has great personal involvement in it, has recently taken the position of Director of Learning and Communications for the Conservation Science Division of The Nature Conservancy— the largest environmental conservation organization in the world. Formerly, he was an Assistant Professor of Biology in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Rice University, Houston, Texas.
Dr. Thornhill is an award-winning instructor who has taught courses in general biology, ecology, genetics, evolutionary biology, tropical biology, botany, biodiversity, environmental science, and conservation biology. He is on the Board of Directors of the Society for Conservation Biology, and is actively involved in research exploring the ecological effects of human encroachment on natural ecosystems and the use of technology in education and communications.
In his capacity as a biologist he teamed with Daniel Quinn to create the video Food Production and Population Growth, which is available at New Tribal Ventures.
Though he has left Houston for The Nature Conservancy's headquarters in Arlington, Virginia, and a host of new responsibilities, Dr. Thornhill will continue to be the webmaster for all Quinn websites.
