Rafe Sagarin, who merged ecological thinking with national security, dies
From The Washington Post:
Raphael D. Sagarin, a marine ecologist who pioneered new ways of thinking about protecting national security through the lens of the environment and animal behavior, died May 28 after being hit by a pickup truck near Tucson. He was 43.
Dr. Sagarin was bicycling on a two-lane highway when he was hit by a truck driven by a man who police say was inebriated. Gary L. Colvin was arrested and charged with manslaughter, according to Arizona Department of Public Safety spokesman Quentin Mehr.
At his death, Dr. Sagarin was an associate research scientist at the University of Arizona. He had won broad acclaim in academic and policy circles for his innovative approach to protecting national security as well as key habitats.
