This is the excerpt for your very first post.
Special issue on fragmentation — watch for it in January!
Congrats and good luck to Julia, who submitted her senior thesis manuscript for publication!
What amazing REU students we had! http://www.colby.edu/reu-in-ethiopia/front-page/reu-site-students/ Now, on to Maine-focused research tasks as Cat returns from sabbatical and Shayla and Julia return from abroad to tackle senior thesis projects.
Led by Nick Haddad (NC State), our working group produced its first paper synthesizing the results from long-term fragmentation experiments across the world. http://advances.sciencemag.org/content/1/2/e1500052
Cathy attended a very stimulating and productive four-day workshop on Experimental and Theoretical Approaches to Studying Habitat Fragmentation. Many baguettes were consumed, and new paper-ideas generated.
