Welcome to this summer's project students (some of whom have already been part of the team for a few weeks). Katia Sanchez Ortiz will be comparing responses of island and mainland sites to human impacts; Susan Emerson will similarly comparing responses inside and outside biodiversity hotspots; Gwilym Pask-Hale will be looking at responses in African savanna systems; John Hughes is targeting New Zealand; Di Gao is focusing on China and nearby countries; Hanbin Zhang is concentrating on large and carnivorous mammals; Joe Middleton-Welling is testing how species' functional traits mediate how Lepidoptera respond to impacts; and William Chan is doing a wide-scale analysis of how organismal mass shapes species' responses.
