Ecological Society of America

September 4, 2012

After a busy summer our lab came together for the 97th annual Ecological Society of America conference in Portland Oregon.  Sharon Collinge presented her and Chris Ray’s recent work on habitat quality versus connectivity in an endemic  vernal pool species.  Akasha Faist explained how invasive species are altering vernal pool soil properties.  Jennifer Wilkening presented a portion of her dissertation on how  fecal samples can be used to understand physiological stress on the American pika. While  Mari Elise Ewing focused on the more social concept of how decision making can alter  land use patterns in the Great Basin.  All in all it was a great success and we look forward to next year!
