10/2014 – new paper in Ecology

Chris’s paper is out in Ecology! “Combining mesocosm and field experiments to predict invasive plant performance: A hierarchical Bayesian approach”, Chris Wilson, T. Trevor Caughlin, David J. Civitello, S. Luke Flory, doi: http://dx.doi.org/10.1890/14-0797.1

8/2014 – ESA Sacramento

Kerry, Chris, and Luke all presented at the Ecological Society of America conference in Sacramento, CA. Kerry’s presentation on pathogen accumulation was part of a organized session on novel pathogens and Chris presented on how to combine datasets using hierarchical models to predict invasive plant fecundity.

8/2014 – TIPS Toronto

Luke presented at the Terrestrial Invasive Plant Species II conference in Toronto, Canada on how the emergence and accumulation of novel pathogens may suppress an invasive grass.

5/2014 – REU student

Amy Conant is visiting the lab this summer from Connecticut as an REU student working on emerging pathogens and Microstegium invasions.
