Please join us for our weekly brown bag lunch seminar.

In this talk, I'll summarize our work aimed at understanding the factors that shape biodiversity, from m2 quadrats to the globe. In particular, I will highlight how our work blends macroecological approaches, physiological experiments in the lab, and experimental manipulations in the field, mostly on ants. My view is that this synthetic approach, across scales, is the best way to understand and predict how biodiversity responds to global change drivers. Field stations are perfect launching pads for this kind of research and for introducing students, across disparate disciplines, to biodiversity and the services and functions it provides. Field stations can also be hubs for interdisciplinary collaborations and provide opportunities to ask, and address, pressing and fundamental questions across fields. The UMBS has been both a launching pad and hub for decades and is poised for continued growth and success.
