Gordon Conference: Unifying Ecology Across Scales

Nigel and Sarah are currently in beautiful Biddeford, Maine at the ‘other’ University of New England attending the Gordon Conference: Unifying Ecology Across Scales. We are showing off our ant research for the Future Eaters ARC project, as well as two current publications:

Congrats to Behnaz

Behnaz’s first publication from her PhD has been accepted in PeerJ

The physiological consequences of varied heat exposure events in adult Myzus persicae: a single prolonged exposure compared to repeated shorter exposures

well done!

Zac’s Honours manuscript accepted for publication

in Austral Entomology

entitled “Effects of microclimate and species identity on body temperature and thermal tolerance of ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae).

Well done Zac!

Nigel chatting Social Evolution, Macroecology, and Physiology

Big afternoon, post seminar, chatting to Koos Boomsma, Michael Poulson, David Nash, Jon Shik, and Sal Keith.

Nigel in Copenhagen

Nigel is currently being hosted by Nate Sanders at the Center for Macroecology, Evolution and Climate, Natural History Museum of Denmark, University of Copenhagen . He gave an invited seminar titled: Assessing Invertebrate Responses to Global Warming: from individual through to biogeographic responses.
