Studying bison -- Southern Illinois University Carbondale graduate student Julia Brockman, left, works with two others to prepare special collars fitted with global positioning system technology.

The data will help SIU researchers learn more about how the newly reintroduced bison manage the prairie where they live. Brockman will earn her master’s in forestry during the next two years in part by assisting in the research for The Nature Conservancy. (Photo provided)
