This summer’s research is in full swing, and new happenings include:
Two new papers! Muth et al. Biology Letters asks how neonic pesticides impact learning of floral scent vs. color…and Francis et al. Current Biology explores how nectar and pollen chemistry might work together to affect interactions between plants, their pollinators, and their co-flowering competitors.
Two new people! Isabelle Maalouf has joined us as a postgrad research assistant, and Anthony Vaudo has joined the lab as a postdoctoral researcher, joining the NSF-funded project “Nutritionally complex floral rewards in a community context”.
