A blog series by Stan Temple, a professor emeritus of forest and wildlife ecology and a senior fellow with the nonprofit Aldo Leopold Foundation, highlights the lives and contributions made by some of Aldo Leopold’s 26 graduate students.

They were the privileged few who had the opportunity to be mentored by Leopold during his 17 years as a professor and pioneer of wildlife management at CALS. Following Leopold’s example, these students went on to make significant contributions to the field.

Check out the first three blog posts featuring Antoon deVos, Bob Ellarson PhD’56 and Dick Taber MS’49.
