We are thrilled to announce that Professor Dave Owen has joined us as co-editor of Environmental Law Professors Blog! Dave will be a fantastic addition to our line-up, and we look forward to his weekly contributions. If you do not already know Dave, here is a brief introduction:
Dave teaches courses in environmental law, natural resources law, water law, coastal zone law, and administrative law. His scholarly interests range from the study of ecosystem restoration to climate change, and he is particularly interested in legal responses to environmental uncertainty and change. He's also a water law geek, and many of his posts are likely to relate to water resource management. Some of his recent research has involved the Endangered Species Act's critical habitat protections and, before that, the impacts of urbanization upon water quality, which is a nice way of saying that he's spent a lot of time pondering the law and ecology of shopping malls. He lives a few blocks from the ocean in Maine, where he spends most of his time chasing his 15-month old son in circles and reading Angelina Ballerina over and over and over again to his three-year-old daughter.
We expect Dave's first post will be later this week.
