Congratulations to Dr. Callin Switzer on the publication in The American Naturalist of his paper on explosive pollen dispersal in mountain laurels! You can read about the study in the Harvard Gazette here, or find the original publication here.
We are excited to welcome Tatiana Ruiz Bedoya to the lab! Tatiana is here for six months as part of the Master Programme in Evolutionary Biology (MEME), an institutional partnership between Uppsala University in Sweden, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitat in Munich, and Harvard. She will be studying the mutational source of flower color differences in Phlox drummondii.
Congratulations to Shayla for winning the E. Arthur Bell Prize for significant achievement as a student in the study of the nonprotein amino acid BMAA for her poster “Assessing the potential for bacterial degradation of BMAA in the guts of cycad-feeding insects” at the 2017 International BMAA Conference in Salt Lake City.
Welcome to Matt Farnitano, who joins the lab as a research technician.
