Congratulations to Mick Demi, who successfully defended his dissertation on 20 October. Mick pulled off perhaps the most difficult (and certainly the most labor-intensive) part of our collaborative five-stream nutrient enrichment project at Coweeta - summarizing the responses of the macroinvertebrate communities to the experimental N:P gradient. It was a huge amount of work that has culminated in secondary production and food web data for the five streams over the three years of the project. The resulting papers are in the works. Well done Mick!
Mick's successful defense means that I now have an empty lab (sniff!). I am actively recruiting students. If you share the lab's interests, please explore this website and get in touch.
