OUR WORK DISCUSSED IN SCIENCE MAGAZINE

11/16/12: Our work was highlighted in a recent Science Magazine article on freshwater mussels: “By filtering water, mussels move nutrient through the food web, supporting nearby terrestrial ecosystems as well. The result: Rivers and streams with a greater number of mussel species tend to have richer algal and insect communities than those with fewer species […]

PAPER FEATURED ON COVER OF ECOLOGY AND HIGHLIGHTED IN NATURE

1/27/11: A paper published in the journal Ecology by PhD student Daniel Allen and  Caryn Vaughn was a featured Research Highlight in the 27 January issue of Nature.  Several decades of research have shown that biodiversity affects trophic ecosystem processes like biomass production and resource acquisition. However, studies investigating if biodiversity can influence non-trophic ecosystem […]
