Research Coverage by Conservation Organization
Our Global Change Biology paper that experimentally tested the effects of warming and connectivity on metacommunity diversity was covered by Conservation Corridor, an organization that makes science accessible to policy makers
Congratulations Dr. Grainger!
Tess defended a very successful PhD. She will be working in Toronto for a few months before beginning a postdoctoral fellowship with Jonathan Levine.
Research Coverage by Quirks and Quarks! Denon was interviewed on Quirks and Quarks for his recent research on temperature and cannibalism Listen to the interview
Zachary Moore won the 2017 Best Undergraduate Evolutionary Ecology Poster Award for his poster on linking the temperature-dependence of life-history traits to population and community dynamics.
Suhas Srinivasan was the runner-up for the Best Undergraduate Ecology Poster Award for his poster on priority effects in metacommunities.
