Prof. Laura Gough, Biology, was invited by the Library to choose an item to add to the Library's collection on the occasion of their Promotion to Professor.
Prof. Gough chose Land of Extremes: A Natural History of the Arctic North Slope of Alaska by Alex Huryn and John Hobbie, Fairbanks, AK: University of Alaska Press, 2012.
Prof. Gough's remarks on this item:
"This book was produced by two colleagues of mine and presents a wonderful overview to the natural history and ecology of the North Slope of Alaska where I’ve been conducting research for 15 years. I hope it will help educate the general public about the beauty and fragility of this American resource."
