PhD update – Zac

My temperature controlled chambers have been completed and are ready for the effects of temperature on dung beetle experiment. They work very well and I have high hopes for them. Currently I’m just waiting for beetle season to commence before beginning the experiment. In meantime I have been sorting through samples from my altitudinal gradient survey. As expected there are few beetles active in the winter months but there have been one or two surprise finds. It’s almost time to do another run to collect samples from my wonderful volunteers and drop off some more supplies. The endnote dung beetle library has been updated again and now has close to 1900 papers.
