Texas A&M University is fond of tradition. The old saying goes: if it is done once, it is an accident; twice, a tradition. Henceforth, a new A&M tradition was started this summer – a tradition of traveling 8,000 miles around the world into a sea of sand at the Gobabeb Research and Training Centre. From this tradition, an international collaboration was born.

The partnership between the ALEC department and the Gobabeb Research and Training Centre will be on display when Mary Seely, Ph.D., Associate for the centre, will be on campus as a part of the Borlaug Seminar Series. Presented by the Norman Borlaug Institute for International Agriculture, the series features scientists and researchers with global impacts and experiences. Seely’s seminar will be held in the AgriLife Center on Oct. 25 at noon.

Seely will address her research and implications, and she will also highlight the unique role that ALEC students have played in the collaboration between the department and the centre.

This summer five undergraduate students, two graduate students, and two instructors – traveled to Namibia. Located in southwest Africa, Namibia is a country of geographical diversity ranging from sandy desert dunes of the Namib Desert, to the wet Atlantic coast and almost every ecosystem in between.
