John Sabo
Associate Professor, School of Life Sciences
Arizona State University
April 22-23


John Sabo is the GDPE Rising Star for 2009. He is an Associate Professor in the School of Life Sciences at Arizona State University. He is a river and riparian ecologist interested in questions that link methods and concepts in the fields of hydrology and ecology. Prior to holding his post at Arizona State University, Dr. Sabo was a National Research Council postdoctoral fellow at the Northwest Fisheries Science Center in Seattle, Washington and at the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis
in Santa Barbara, California. His current research quantifies links between ground water, species interactions and biodiversity in riparian ecosystems and between variation in surface hydrology and community organization in river ecosystems in the context of global climate change. Dr. Sabo’s most recent work aims to articulate sustainable solutions to limited freshwater supplies in the Western US that
consider water needs for agriculture, growing urban areas and biodiversity. He teaches courses in Biometry, Field Ecology, Community Ecology and Freshwater Sustainability and leads the Biodiversity focus group for the Central Arizona Phoenix Long Term Ecological Research program.
