Local governments, counties, and regional planning entities throughout the US have been developing new strategies and implementation plans for sustainability. Sustainability planning often integrates areas such as green building standards, urban redevelopment and regeneration districts, smart growth policies, public and pedestrian/bike friendly transportation, local food supply and area food policies, and more. This panel will discuss major trends and needs for sustainable communities in Kansas as well as how higher education is involved and how it can be more involved.

Kansas is the third windiest state in the nation and is centrally situated geographically for providing access to commercialized wind energy. Kansas wind could be a major contributor to an energy future for the United States that is renewable, efficient, and home-grown. Yet, there are many steps to go from here to there. This panel will feature experts in wind energy technologies and development from around Kansas. They will discuss some of the technical hurdles and workforce needs if this development is to take place.

The introduction of non-native species has been one of the most damaging human impacts on specific ecosystems and the environment in general. Invasive species, such as the Zebra Mussel (Dreisenna polymorpha), are often introduced into an ecosystem inadvertently, but with negative and far-reaching effects on native species. D. polymorpha, since its introduction, has exhibited a devastating propensity for altering the trophic state of lakes and rivers, and has rapidly populated many waterbodies throughout North America. Two rules added to a genetic algorithm rule-set prediction (GARP)model reflect the temporal dimension and the spatial extent of spread. Utilizing GARP, TableCurve, and GIS, I modeled several possible scenarios. Results of the models illustrate the potential for D. polymorpha to continue spreading deeper into the United St...
