Brian Obermeyer, who graduated from Emporia State University with a bachelor’s degree in biology in 1994 and a master’s degree in biology in 1996, was featured in the Nature Conservancy quarterly magazine [2012(2): 21] for his article “A Good Place for Wind,” which describes the research done by Obermeyer and his colleagues for “Development by Design: Mitigating Wind Development’s Impacts on Wildlife in Kansas” published in Public Library of Science (PLoS) ONE journal in 2011. The article was a highlight of the Nature Conservancy’s efforts to lower the risks of wind development to the tall grass prairie and other crucial habitats.
