Dr. Duke joined the Ecological Society of America (ESA) as Director of Science Programs in January 2003. The Science Office (www.esa.org/science) originated with ESA's Sustainable Biosphere Initiative in 1992, and focuses on the application of ecological science to environmental problem solving. To that end, the Office works with ESA members, other professional societies, and public agencies to develop workshops and publications on a variety of topics related to ecosystem sustainability, global change and biodiversity. Current Science Office projects include data sharing and archiving initiatives; a recent conference and workshop on the ecological dimensions of biofuels (www.esa.org/biofuels); and an initiative in partnership with Dr. Gus Shaver of the Marine Biological Laboratory at Woods Hole to examine and articulate the intellectual foundations for a new sustainability science (www.esa.org/science_resources/sustainability.php).

Before coming to ESA, Dr. Duke worked for 13 years in environmental consulting, managing preparation of environmental impact statements and ecological risk assessments for Department of Defense and Department of Energy facilities nationwide. He received his Ph.D. in Botany and an M.A. in Public Policy Science, both from Duke University and his B.A. in Biology and Environmental Studies from the University of Vermont. He currently serves on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Board of Scientific Counselors and the Steering Committee of the Sustainable Rangelands Roundtable (sustainablerangelands.warnercnr.colostate.edu/).
