Aloysius successfully defends his PhD thesis

Congratulations to Dr. Aloysius Teo for successfully defending his PhD thesis! Aloysius’ thesis is titled “Influence of biodiversity on ecosystem function in primary and secondary forests of Singapore: microclimate, litterfall, and decomposition”. His results improve our understanding of how ecosystem function in tropical secondary forests differs from that in primary forests—an especially important topic given that vast regions of the tropics are now dominated by secondary forests.
