We have a new paper in Biotropica discussing the role academics plays to biodiversity science. "This effort stemmed from a symposium on this topic at the 2021 ATBC meeting and the lively discussions that followed. We consider some general principles that will help scientists engage in the most effective, ethically appropriate action to have long-term impacts and then present a set of general, practical suggestions of ways scientists can engage with broader systems to promote positive changes."
Congratulations to lab member Anaid for being awarded a Tinker Field Research grant from the Center of Latin American Studies at UC Berkeley to conduct a preliminary study on patterns of movement, foraging and habitat use of howler monkeys in Mexico for her PhD
