WelcomeWe study mate choice, communication, and how interactions between species affect the ecology and evolution of behavior. We work with insects, because they are easy to collect and rear, have short generation times, and display all the fascinating behavior one could ever wish for.
- Congratulations to Dawson, Emma, Bea, Lauren, and Warren, who all presented research at the North Carolina Academy of Science Annual Meeting! All five students were recognized for their excellent work, and we could not be prouder of them.
- Jen gave invited seminars at Winthrop University, the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, and the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, highlighting contributions by student researchers from the past two years.
- Breanna and Matt's proposals were funded for the Summer 2017 SURE program!
- Welcome new lab members Breanna and Matt, and welcome back to returning members - it's going to be a great semester!
- The Bug Camp book Jen wrote with Tim Forrest went to press! Elon Magazine discusses it here.
